Radney Foster’s new video, which accompanies his single “Angel Flight,” will be released today, Veteran’s Day (11/11). Darren Cameron of Man Bites Dog, directed the video in Dallas. 

Foster wrote “Angel Flight” with fellow Texas songwriter Darden Smith to tell the story of the aircrew that fly fallen soldiers home to their final resting place. The Air National Guard entrusted with flying these soldiers refer to the journey as the “Angel Flight.” 

The Texas National Guard cut through plenty of red tape to assist Foster and the producers in the making of the video. Proceeds from sale of “Angel Flight” benefit Texas National Guard Family Support Foundation. To see the video click here.
