It started with an idea…to help his fellow man by creating art that would touch people’s hearts and souls, inviting them to “pay it forward…” That idea became a song…”Lay One Down” was released on Veterans Day 2015, as a benefit for Heart Songs For Veterans. That song became an Interactive Global Music Video Initiative, with award-winning artists from around the world coming together over a period of two months, to contribute their time and talents to Ed Roman’s “Lay One Down” music video.
Now, MTS Management Group and Ed Roman, in cooperation with Heart Songs For Veterans, are happy to announce the release of the music video for “Lay One Down.” The video premiered on April 24th, on Ed’s VEVO channel. Watch it now here.
