“Friends you Never Knew”
Gary Allen/Craig Mednikov
This song “Friends You Never Knew” was written when Gary lived in Nashville in 2005. The title came from a great friend of his, Craig Mednikow. When Gary wrote the song he wanted to make it about any famous/great person. He didn’t have a particular person in mind. So he started thinking about his six year old daughter and how much she means to him. It hit him – that innocent children are our “True Heroes” in life. He then started thinking about the Sandy Hook tragedy and how deeply that saddened him.
That’s when he decided to make a video for the children!
Good Job Gary!!
