Home is a four-letter word that brings both happiness and longing to our soldiers.
Each soldier deployed to fulfill his duty will leave behind a family. It may be a mother, father, siblings, spouse, or a child – waiting for the day that he comes back again.
A soldier misses his home more than anything else, and each one has their way of dealing with their homesickness.
Some train, some exercise, some read, and some soldiers sing.
The group Six-String Soldiers took this opportunity to share their music with the whole world, especially with their fellow combatants and their families.
If you are not familiar with this group, then they are one of the most followed military music bands in the world!
The Six-String Soldiers is a music group that alternates between four to five members. They perform Country, Bluegrass music, and even folk.
This music group started in 2015, and all of its members are active-duty soldiers.
The band members were looking for an effective way to fulfill the Army’s commitment to its soldiers. Each member doesn’t just know how to sing; each band member also knows how to play a musical instrument.
The band’s instruments consist of a guitar, mandolin, fiddle, acoustic bass guitar, and a banjo.
Aside from fulfilling their duties, these soldiers can also do guestings and collaborations. In fact, they have performed with Harry Connick Jr., John Fogerty, and even Darryl Worley.
Their music is a great way to relieve homesickness.
