Country singer Steve Azar writes, records official 2015 World Championships song
VAIL — Country musician Steve Azar has written and recorded the official song of the 2015 FIS Alpine World Ski Championships. Entitled “Fly,” the song was recorded in Nashville at the end of July, featuring members of the Nashville Symphony, along with Azar’s band. “Fly” was released via all digital outlets on Tuesday.
“A song writes itself if you let it,” Azar said. “You just have to allow the inspiration to soak in and then just get out of its way. ‘Fly,’ even though it took only a few hours to write, started its journey from the first time I met my friends at the Vail Valley Foundation some eight years ago, as well as all the legends of skiing I’ve gotten to know along the way. As a songwriter, I hope to have captured the feeling as well as inspire the skiers getting prepared to fly down that mountain.”
