Tribute to Taylor Jean Parkins by Adam Martin of Blackbird Anthem

by Sarah Parkins-Pyles 


Over the past 24 hrs, I’ve been contemplating sharing this as it’s so special and so thoughtful. Selfishly, I kind of wanted to keep this just for me to hold close to my heart.  I then realized that something this awesome and this beautiful needs to be shared and it would be selfish of me not to. 

My friend Adam Martin, who is a very talented lead singer for Blackbird Anthem, and solo artist currently on tour, texted this to me yesterday evening.  It was created in honor of my daughter Taylor who just a few weeks ago was tragically killed in a car accident.  I didn’t ask for Adam to do this and I was in awe that Adam took the time out of his busy schedule to do this for my family.  I am blessed. 

I met Adam along with many other awesome people through Anteris Alliance. This is not a marketing ad or “click bait” post in anyway what so ever. And I share this with you to pay it forward in Taylors honor.  

This is a cover to a beautiful song called Lead Me Home, original artist Jamey Johnson.  

The entire Anteris Alliance family have given so much love and support, I don’t even know where to begin to repay them.  If you don’t yet know of BlackBird Anthem, Adam C Martin, or Anteris Alliance, you definitely should look them up and follow on Facebook to see for yourself how special they all are.

When the Alliance and our partners found out that Taylor had passed, every single one of them jumped into action to immediately to support and pray for our family.  Whether it were sending flowers, providing a meal, sending a card, text, honoring Taylor on their live FB show, making a gracious donation to her go fund me page (for a memorial bench), making a cover song, and YES several even came from a far to attend her Celebration of Life!  

My point is that not only is the Alliance a Family of Brands” but also a “Family”….and I am forever grateful.  To have only known Adam and the Alliance family for a little over 6 months, and to see the heart ?? and soul of this group and its partners first hand, I knew I had to share with you all.  I know I’m long winded and I apologize this post is so long, but it is important to me to share the heart and soul of the people of the Alliance and how strong of a bond we have in such a short amount of time.  It’s much more than a bunch of companies cross promoting their business, They are true to their name and character and are definitely worth sharing with the world.

I thank you Adam for this cover, I vow to pay it forward and continue to honor my beautiful girl who will NEVER be forgotten.
