Buzz Cason wrote a song that the Beatles recorded. The song Soldier of Love was loved by John Lennon and Paul McCartney. Now while still a musician Buzz has taken on a great challenge.
Dan Shafer's recent appearance on NBC's The Voice is really a tribute to the good work of Nashville's GIFT Program.
Veteran musicians who get together for an annual Picnic in the Park.
They eat fried chicken, share needs, and talk about the old times.
A grateful Dan Shafer came out and performed.
Buzz Cason, the Beatles guy, enjoys seeing what he's created.

Never thinking he'd come back.
"I'm blessed to be able to do what I do, even though it's all these years later."
Blessed with success when Blake Shelton pushed the button for him, sight unseen.
"When he saw me he was shocked because he heard this youthful voice."
His gift from the GIFT program...
"It's never too late, I don't think so at all..."
