Carissa Leigh releases Tribute To Troops this Memorial Day Weekend

AXS Hosts Exclusive Listening Party

NASHVILLE, TN. (May 26, 2017)
Just in time for the Memorial Day holiday, talented singer/songwriter, Carissa Leigh, celebrates the release of her charity single "At Night." A haunting tribute to our troops battling PTSD, Carissa will be donating all proceeds from the release to Operation Stand Down. "At Night" was produced by Los Angeles trailblazer, Tone Def (Green Day, Santana, Outkast, Black Eye Peas), and can be found on iTunes and other digital retailers.

AEG owned has the audio exclusive HERE.

Carissa explains the inspirations behind the release: " At Night came from conversations I had with someone I was dating about how he might not be in the Middle East any more but sometimes at night, he would wake up and think he was. 
He was a big, strong guy, and to see him get emotional inspired me to write about guys like him, who seem okay but sometimes at night, they let their guard down. I wanted to give the proceeds to OSDTN because I know they do amazing work with struggling veterans, actually part of the chorus was inspired by something I saw in their lobby that said "home of the free, because of the brave.""

Operation Stand Down was a natural choice for the Nashville based artist as she spends her free time volunteering with the organization.  

2016 found the release of Carissa's 14-song project, "Better Than I've Been."  Showcasing her incredible vocals and autobiographical songwriting skills, the album was produced by Tone Def & can be found HERE on iTunes. Industry and fans first turned their heads to Carissa Leigh with her 2014 debut of "Bad Boy" and then later with "Pack That Bag." Produced by Tyler Cain (Meghan Linsey, James Otto, Ashley Monroe) and co-written by Leigh and J.T. Hodges“Pack That Bag” impacted over 5 million country fans.


An eclectic music lover, Carissa Leigh grew up listening to Dolly Parton in one ear and The Allman Brothers Band in the other. 

Her grandfather was a die-hard Country fan, while her father’s loyalties lie with rock 'n' roll. Both influenced Carissa growing up, but as the years went by it was the sounds of Shania Twain and Keith Urban that she found making their way into her own music. 

So it's of no surprise that she ended up in Nashville. Industry and fans first turned their heads to this promising new voice with the 2014 release of her EP Blackbird, which landed her a feature in Billboard.
