In 2002, Drake was signed to Warner Bros. Records as a recording artist. His first single, "And Then", peaked at #57 on the Billboard country music charts. Following this song was "One Last Time". Inspired by the crash of United Airlines Flight 93, the song became his first Top 40 country hit, peaking at #26. Both songs were included on his debut album titled Dusty Drake, which was released in mid-2003.
After the release of his album, Drake went on to become an opening act for Kenny Chesney and Brooks & Dunn, as well as performing on the Grand Ole Opry. His album's third single, "Smaller Pieces", reached a peak of #50. By 2004, a fourth single entitled "I Am the Working Man" was released, which went on to peak at #43.
Drake signed to Big Machine Records in 2007. His first single for the label, "Say Yes" (co-written by MCA Nashville artist Josh Turner along with Brett James and Don Schlitz), became his second Top 40 country hit, peaking at #36.
"Somewhere We Care" is Dusty's latest song, and his heartfelt tribute to the men and women who have served overseas.
