The Johnny Wood Band / Press

“Part of an article written about Johnny Wood: Been To Hell And Back is a simple ballad that tells the story of how once they go and serve in a war, our soldier’s lives are changed forever. When they do come home, many face the expectations from family and friends that they will be the same person that left here. “How can they be the same? War is hell.” Said Johnny as he continued, “Only those whom have been there can really relate to what it is like.” The song addresses how a mother realizes her boy is different after going to Iraq. His Dad knows there is only one person that could help his son cope with what he went through, and that is someone who has been through it himself. He tells his son to talk to his uncle, a Vietnam vet. “Wait till you hear the full studio version, we did the acoustic recording of Been to Hell because we really wanted to get it out there.’ And those who have ‘Been to Hell and Back’ are so glad you did get it out there! ”
