Bam Records and Pangea International Recording Group are proud to announce the release of the latest single from CMA Nashville recording artist and Cincinnati Ohio native, Dan Varner.
Born in Cincinnati, Ohio, Varner has been singing since about the time he could walk. He grew up listening to his dad and uncles (with roots in the Tennessee mountains) picking their guitars. Other family members and friends would join in singing along to old country, gospel, and bluegrass songs. His band, The Dan Varner Band, is comprised of some of finest musicians in the area, and has shared the stage with superstars like Blake Shelton, Taylor Swift, Randy Houser, John Michael Montgomery, and many more.
Released just in time for Veterans Day, "Thanks to You" has special meaning for Varner. "This song just spoke to me when I heard it. It says everything I want to say to the veterans who have sacrificed to give my family, and all families, the freedoms that we enjoy."
Varner includes at least one military tribute song in every performance, and "Thanks to You" sends the perfect message to his loyal following of fans. The song was originally written by award winning songwriter Sam Tate, who is also signed to Bam Records with Varner. In addition to a storied career in the music industry, Tate is a veteran of the Vietnam War and a recipient of the Purple Heart.
Pat Holt, owner of Pat Holt Productions and producer of the single calls Varner's vocals "phenomenal! A breath of fresh air". Holt has worked with legends in the music industry like Johnny Cash, George Jones, Jimmy Buffet, James Taylor, and Alabama, to name a few.
The song, which is available on iTunes (HERE), can also be purchased and sent as a gift, which is a feature that Varner wanted to include so that those who have a veteran in mind can send them a beautiful musical tribute.
"We truly owe our veterans for everything we have. God bless them, and God bless this great nation." – Dan Varner
