NASHVILLE (AP) - Aaron Tippin, whose "You've Got to Stand for Something" became an anthem during the 1991 Gulf War, has recorded a track he hopes will help in the latest national crisis. Tippin spent the weekend cutting "Where the Stars and Stripes and the Eagle Fly." He wrote the song 2 years ago with Kenny Beard and Casey Beathard but had not issued it on a recording.

"We thought it might be an inspiration to people at this difficult time," Tippin says in the news release from his record company.

"Where the Stars and Stripes and the Eagle Fly" will be sent to radio stations immediately, and a commercial single, with a new recording of "You've Got to Stand for Something," will be available as soon as the discs can be manufactured and shipped to stores.

Proceeds from the new disc will be donated to the American Red Cross to aid victims of the terrorist attacks.

As the U.S. works to find a way to combat the terrorists who struck on Sept. 11, Tippin sees parallels to the Gulf War. During that conflict, he went to Saudi Arabia to entertain American troops with Bob Hope.

"This song is an opportunity to speak to people," Tippin feels. "I hope it will be an inspiration to the soldiers, the men and women about to be [soldiers] and the Americans at home."
