Country recording artist Braden Stover was on-hand to perform his anit-bullying anthem We Were Just Too Scared at the West Virginia Regional Conference on Bullying Thursday, October 25th at the Waterfront Place Hotel in Morgantown. This was Stover’s second public performance of the song in honor of October’s anti-bullying month.
The conference, which took place the 25th and the 26th and was hosted by the School Safety Advocacy Council and co-hosted by RESA 7, also featured several keynote speakers, including Curtis Lavarello, Executive Director; Lt. Sean Burke, President; Captain Vanessa Snow, Esq.; Lt. Tim Enos, Sarasota County Sherrifs Office (FL); and Heidi Riccio, School Administrator and National Trainer (MA).”While it’s important for children involved in bullying to recognize the issue and understand how to prevent it, it’s equally as important for parents and school officials to understand how to handle it,” said Stover. “Hopefully my song can aid in shedding some light on the bullying epidemic and provide a message that’s understood by all. Being a part of this convention was an honor, as well as something I felt called to do.”
Stover recently recorded We Were Just Too Scared at The Tracking Room in Nashville, Tennessee. The single will be available for purchase on iTunes beginning next month.
About Braden Stover:
Getting his start in music at the young age of four, Jane Lew, West Virginia-native Braden Stover’s musical talents were apparent early on. His strong work ethic, dedication, persistence and clean, all-American pop-country sound have carried him through countless competitions, fairs and festivals. Despite his busy tour schedule, Stover’s conviction to give back within his community often prevails – in 2011, he was named National Youth Volunteer of the Year. With a high school diploma under his belt, Stover plans to move to Nashville in January 2013 to attend Belmont University and continue promoting his latest studio album, ‘I Hate Love’ – produced by legendary songwriter Dan Mitchell (“If You’re Gonna Play in Texas, You Gotta Have a Fiddle in the Band”) and recorded at the world-famous Tracking Room Studio.
