For El Reno Oklahoma native David Chamberlain, country music is not just songs about the ups and downs of life, drinking whiskey and driving a pickup truck, it's the soundtrack and biography to his own personal journey.
His latest album, “Freedom Don't Come Free,” is not just flag-waving from behind the gates of a mansion on the hill - it's a simple heart-felt expression of a lesson Chamberlain learned the hard way.
“Our guys going over there defending our country and not coming back in the same condition they left in,” he said. “It may be a wound or scar that you can see, or a wound or scar that you can't see, but it's something they'll carry that around with them for the rest of their lives.
“They do that for us in the name of freedom,” Chamberlain said. What Chamberlain doesn't say is one of the “our guys” he sings about was him.

I saw horses that had been champion rodeo horses that could no longer be competitive. In today's economy, that generally means the horses are turned into dog food. Yet, here they were, teaching special needs children how to ride. In that same vein, here was a group of children with severe disabilities that were being treated very badly in school and in public. Very few people besides their parents cared about them or were even nice to them. It struck me what a miracle was happening! A group of horses and a group of children that were flawed came together and magic happened. The horses had a job to perform they were perfect for and the children had a chance to be accepted unconditionally. In addition, they learned new skills and gained a confidence they had never had before! I thought about and reflected on this for several days. One morning before I started work, I sat down and wrote the poem/song on my want list. I worked on it a little more trying to make it better, before I called David Chamberlain and asked him how this poem could be made into a song. Through an unbelievable series of events, the poem was fine tuned, set to music, and recorded in Nashville, TN--a true team effort of me, David Chamberlain, and Dean Miller. All along, my goal was to tell the story of the miracles that happen at Sunset Therapeutic Riding Center, so it and other programs like it could be expanded to help even more horses and people.

A truly heart-warming song sung by the outstanding David Chamberlain. Focusing on his pride to serve his fellow country men and women, as well as his brothers in the US Army, David gives a thought provoking and excellent performance about the real plight that war has on us all. This was originally released in 2010 for Veterans Day, and now has a brand new video! This should be watched by everyone to remind them that freedom truly doesn’t come free.
