Brad Paisley has recorded and released a new song called ‘Hard Life,’ which was penned by his friend, 23-year-old Joe Kindregan. Kindregan suffers from A-T (ataxia-telangiectasia), which is a rare, fatal and genetic disease where symptoms of disorders like cystic fibrosis, muscular dystrophy, immune deficiencies and cancer are manifested.

The song, which is available for purchase here and via other digital platforms, is part of a special initiative for the non-profit dubbed A-T Children’s Project. The project will receive all of Paisley’s digital royalties for the song for a year.

In a statement, Paisley said, “I’ve known Joe for several years and he is one of my favorite people. His disease is physically debilitating but obviously creatively and mentally Joe has such tremendous depth. It’s an honor for me to be the person to give voice to his creativity and cause.”
