If this video moves you like creating it did for me, please share the love!
My wife went to high school with Grant and after the accident she asked if I would play at his fundraiser. I met him that night and witnessed the force that he and Shawna are. A force of positivity, inspiration and love. Over a year later and I was following Grant’s journey to the South Pole on Facebook when a status update that embodied their love just floored me and I felt the need to share it… and how I do that is through song so I spent the next few days writing this and called it “Mad Love” because that is how the Korgans sign off on everything. That is how they live – “Madluv.”
