What do you do when you find out that a song you wrote and recorded is inspiring a group of athletes representing your country at the Olympic Games? If you’re smart, you find a clever way to them. And that is precisely what Brendan James did over the weekend.
Singer-songwriter Brendan James was in the midst of moving cross-country (from California to South Carolina) when he learned that the U.S. Women’s National Soccer Team was playing his song, “The Lucky Ones,” in the locker room before games at the London Olympics. As a gesture of thanks, he stopped in Amarillo, TX and made a live video recording of “The Lucky Ones” dedicated to the team at a local music store, Tarpley Music. He then sent the video to the players via YouTube, which caught the attention of several players.

The U.S. Women’s Soccer Team will play against Japan Thursday in the Gold Medal Match and James plans to cheer them on to victory. James released his third album, Hope In Transition, on July 10, 2012 via Rock Ridge Music.
