Livingston is a Gulf and Iraq war veteran who has been speaking out and bringing awareness to Post Traumatic Stress Disorder with the help of his service dog, Roxie, a Belgian Malinois.

Roxie has helped him control his PTSD. Brittany Jean wrote and recorded the song “Roxie” in a Nashville studio, which will be featured on her album “Whispered Stories.” A photo of Livingston and Roxie will be on the cover of the album.

The album is Brittany Jean’s first country/folk album and was funded through Kickstarter, an online funding site. “Whispered Stories” will include 11 original songs.

According to her Kickstarter website, she has a country/folk style that is influenced by John Denver, Gordin Lightfoot, Sara Groves and Alison Krauss. She recently completed a final recording session in early July and hopes to bring the album to completion and distribution on Sept. 2.
