McCain is scheduled to be in attendance at the concert. John tells The Associated Press that he finished writing the song about a month ago and sent it to McCain’s daughter Meghan, who passed it on to campaign officials. “I wanted to offer him something that he didn’t have, a rally song, one that really captures that maverick spirit,” John explains. John will offer the song on his website, johnrich.com, free of charge.
