“Survivors Survive” – Being Played Around the World and Reaching Others

The story of "Survivors Survive" is a crazy one if you have read any of my other blogs about the song and how it came to be. I won't go into all of the details; however, I would like to talk about how this song has touched thousands and sent out a message that continues to "deliver".

Bittersweet: A Kid Who Beat Cancer 4 Times, His Friend and His Song

My life as a child was probably a bit different than others—And that's not a "poor little me story". In all honesty, rarely did I ever even feel sorry for myself. Partially because my dad, the voice of reason and reality, was always there to remind me that other people had it worse. He'd say, "Ryan, the man with no shoes thought he had it bad until he met the man with no feet!" Also, heck, I'd been sick [...]

“Survivors Survive”: A Song. A Video. Words to Live By! by Ryan Hamner

// The last few weeks have been crazy! As some of you may know, I wrote and recorded a new song entitled, “Survivors Survive”.

After seeing Jack at hospice, a comment from his mom inspired me to write the song, "Another Chance Tonight" which is on my new EP. Little did I know that Jack really did [...]
