LOS ANGELES-The music of Reilly, Maren Morris and Shaun Canon, among other breakout artists, is currently featured in Missions In Action, a recently launched online series sharing real stories of hope filmed on location around the world. Each of the 19 Missions In Action webisodes spotlights a song relating to the program's theme, with selections from Reilly, Morris and Canon being utilized in multiple episodes. Hosted by The Amazing Race 2 winner Alex Boylan, Missions In Action documents people in life-threatening need and those who are bringing hope to their situation, while allowing viewers an opportunity to make an immediate impact.

"We very carefully select what we feel are just the right songs to help tell the stories of people going through incredible life challenges-and those who are making a difference in their world."

"I'm honored and thrilled to have our music included in the Missions In Action web series," said John Reilly, lead vocalist/guitarist for Reilly ( "Missions In Action and Reilly share a common desire to help the less fortunate. I love how the shows are dedicated to creating awareness of organizations that are on the front lines helping to improve and even save lives. I thought our song 'Free,' about being loosed from the chains of slavery, was especially appropriate for Episode 14: Nagpur's Red Light Children."

"I am truly honored to have my music involved with Missions In Action," said Maren Morris ( "It's not every day you write a song and see it so seamlessly woven into people's lives who spend almost every moment in struggle and strife. I hope that people are impacted by these very real issues that are shown to us through the eyes of these people."

"Missions In Action is an excellent production and I'm very happy to be a part of something inspiring," said Shaun Canon ( "It's great to see the episodes showcasing good deeds around the world to remind us of all the good-hearted people who truly wish to help and serve others."
