Fans are probably going to need a lot of tissues for Brandon Davis‘ new song. The singer-songwriter announces the release of “21 Guns,” out on November 3, just in time for Veterans Day, which falls this year on November 11.
Davis shared a clip of the patriotic song on social media, playing it for his wife, Destiny.

Davis just released his 17-track Life’s Too Short album last month. The record was written or co-written entirely by Davis, who used the project as his way of sharing a story with the world.
“I’m a storyteller at heart,” Davis tells Everything Nash. “You can ask my kids, you can ask anyone that comes to the concerts that we play — I love to tell stories. And songs are the ultimate story in my mind. Because the way I’ve kind of wrapped it up and seen it is that I’m writing a story for somebody. This song is for someone. And I may not ever meet that person in my life, but at the end of the day, I know I wrote it for them.”
It’s Destiny who first encouraged her husband to leave his steady job and focus on music full-time, and remains his biggest supporter and strongest advocate, in music and in life.
“She’s the driving force behind all of it,” Davis boasts. “And to say that means that she’s the one that pushes me to be the best version of myself, to keep going for that next song, telling that next story, finding that next group of people that we want to reach, and accomplishing these milestones.
“Being an example, not only for my kids and the people around me, but for other people,” he continues. “Whether it’s inspiring an artist to be themselves and do what they want to do and what they love, or whether it’s just inspiring somebody to smile when they get out of bed in the morning. So she is the life of this music.”
Davis is moving full-speed ahead with his music career, but his first priority is, and always will be, his wife and their four children.
“I’m the sports dad. I’ve always got a guitar in somebody’s hand,” Davis explains. “We’re always around the house singing and carrying on. I’m the dad that’s [doing] Nerf gun wars or playing Batman in the middle of the day. But I’m also the dad that’s trying to turn on a movie for all of us to watch, and passing out in the middle of the movie on the couch. So I’m all over the spectrum here. I’m the jack of all [trades], master of none.”
