On this episode:
Halloween may be all about scary ghost stories, but for Marine Corps veteran Sal Gonzalez, it’s also the anniversary of his nightmare -- the day he almost died in Ramadi, Iraq. During our interview, he shared his incredible journey from the battlefield to national television.
Gonzalez would eventually become a Wounded Warrior Project ambassador, which would lead him to NBC's "America’s Got Talent," which in turn launched his career in country music. Since his time on the show Gonzalez has appeared on other shows including, "Nashville" and the "Kelly Clarkson Show."
His recent album "Heroes" has some incredible songs inspired by his fellow veterans, including some lyrical nods to the fighting in Ramadi in the heavy alt-country rock song "Shadow of Death."
Check out Sal Gonzalez's latest EP Heroes.
