On Thursday, November 8th, 2018, award-winning americana/folk singer-songwriter Tia McGraff will premiere her new lyric video for “One Tin Soldier.” In honor of Remembrance Day and Veterans Day, celebrated on November 11th, the video pays tribute to World War 1 veterans. The single reached the Top 20 on the iTunes Canadian Country Singles Chart.
“We were on the road and watching the video on our phones,” said Tia. “I just had the chance to sit down last night, with my mom and dad here at our house and watch it on the big screen. Chill bumps! My dad wanted to watch it 3 times in a row! He is a huge WW1 and 2 buff and said, ‘there are some really heavy and deep images happening here. A big story!”
“One Tin Soldier” will premiere on popular Canadian music site, CanadianBeats.ca.
Then, on Friday, November 9th, Tia will be the guest on “Daytime Live” Ottawa. “Daytime Live” airs live on Rogers Cable 22 at 1pm Eastern, then repeats at 6pm and 11pm.
