Country artist Wynonna Judd teamed up with Pete Scobell Band to record an emotional tribute song to honor American hero and former Navy SEAL Chris Kyle and his friend, Chad Littlefield. Both men were tragically murdered on February 2, 2013 at a shooting range by Eddie Ray Routh in Stephenville, Texas.

Chris Kyle's widow, Taya, posted the powerful song, titled "Hearts I Leave Behind" on her late husband's Facebook page and had something to say about it:

"I have always loved music. On the Patriot Tour last year the crew on the bus included our good friend and Chris's teammate Pete Scobell who was the musician on tour with us. I asked about how he chooses which songs to sing and asked if I could listen to some. He played "The Hearts I Leave Behind". With tears rolling down my face, I looked at Pete and said, "you have to record this song." This song is Chris. It is me. It is all the people who carry Chris in the hearts he left behind."

According to Taya Kyle, Pete Scobell, also a former Navy SEAL, immediately turned to Wynonna to see if she'd sing this song with him and she happily got on board. They both decided that all proceeds from "Hearts I Leave Behind" will be donated to the Chris Kyle Frog Foundation

There are many things that could be said about this song. It's raw, bittersweet, and extremely powerful. Scobell embodies the song - in a way, forcing us to feel what he feels. "Pete knows what it is like to face death," Taya wrote. "He has a family he loves. He has lost brothers and parents. You can feel the love in the song." No truer words could be said about this song.

Check out the tribute song below. God bless our troops and the Kyle and Littlefield families.

LYRICS BELOW

I wanna find what others rarely find
Conscience clean and peace of mind
Life like a book I'm proud to sign
Written on hearts I leave behind

I wanna roll on a road of my own design
We're fear and faith they're intertwined
Hoping there's a finish line
Within the hearts I leave behind

If God lets me choose where I go when I die
Then I'll lay my head down where love resides
And I'll never have to say goodbye
I'll live in the hearts I'll leave behind

I wanna leave a mark a permanent kind
And I was here that don't fade with time
A sacred place that's only mine
Within the hearts of those I leave behind

If God lets me choose where I go when I die
Then I'll lay my head down where love resides
And I'll never have to say goodbye
I'll live in the hearts I'll leave behind

If God lets me choose where I go when I die
Then I'll lay my head down where love resides
And I'll never have to say goodbye
I'll live in the hearts I'll leave behind

Safe in the hearts I leave behind
