Country superstar Brad Paisley is marking the one-year anniversary of the invasion of Ukraine by Russia with a new song.
“Same Here” shows the things that almost everyone can experience no matter what part of the world they live in, such as traffic, sunsets or even grabbing a beer, USA Today reported.
At the end of the song, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy can be heard talking about how, while they come from different places, they “appreciate the same things.”
The audio of Zelenskyy came from a phone call between the singer and the president, USA Today reported.
Paisley wrote about his inspiration for the song on Instagram.
The song was written by Paisley along with Lee Thomas Miller and Taylor Goldsmith, The Associated Press reported.
“Same Here” is the first song from Paisley’s new album “Son of the Mountains.” Some of the profits from the song will be given to United24 and will be used to build homes for people who lost theirs in the war, the AP reported. Paisley is one of the celebrity ambassadors for United24.
