STEVIE NICKS, ‘SOLDIER’S ANGEL’ – SONG REVIEW by @UltClassicRock:

Stevie Nicks has a special message for our armed forces in the form of her new single ‘Soldier’s Angel,’ which appears on her current ‘In Your Dreams’ album and has just been released on the edge of Memorial Day Weekend.

Nicks found inspiration for the song from her many visits with returning veterans at Walter Reed and Bethesda Naval Hospital, writing the track as way to honor those men and women who have served our country.

“I am a soldier’s angel / Through the eyes of a soldier / Through the eyes of a soldier / I am a soldier’s mother / Through the eyes of an angel / I am a soldier myself / And no one walks away from this battle.” Against the backdrop of a singular electric guitar, an unvarnished vocal from Nicks, naked and void of any polish or effect, considers the unique position of each person and how they’re affected by the effects of war and the absence of their loved ones.

Is this accurate? Is this the second single? She has referred to it as her most revered song, and it is beautifully written and sung. I just don't see it being a radio hit. I think it deserves a special place and be sung at special events. Not in rotation with katy perry or train.
There is a plethora of single choices that are radio friendly, some might need 'radio edits' as it might be difficult to get a 5 minute song played today.
