Heart‘s Ann and Nancy Wilson are the daughters of a decorated Marine Corps officer, and their new song “Dear Old America,” is dedicated to their dad and other members of the military. Now the group is putting together a video for the song, which appears on their new album Fanatic, and the Wilson sisters are asking fans to help.

Adds the singer, “‘Dear Old America’ is especially written for those men and women who have served, those men and women who have put themselves out there on the edge, and who are trying to come home and return to the world as it is here.”
And yet, when given the opportunity to help elect just such a man to be president, they very publicly turned their backs on him. Perhaps this is their way of apologizing.
