Ryan Weaver is many things -- a U.S. Army Combat Veteran, Two-Time Gold Star Family Member and a Country Music Singer/Songwriter.
Ryan’s personal story is like no other artist in country music today. He’s a former Black Hawk Aviator who lost a brother and brother-in-law in service, making them a two-time Gold Star family. His brother Aaron was killed in Iraq on January 8, 2004 and his borther-in-law Randy was killed in Afghanistan on December 17, 2013.
Ryan used his heartache as determination to succeed. Both of his brothers’ ultimate sacrifices continue to fuel his fire to accomplish his dreams in music.
