This gift book for anyone who filled a father's role by choice is a reminder that being a father is far more than just biological, it's a relationship.

He Didn't Have to Be is a tender salute to a stepfather who becomes a loving dad to a child even though he "didn't have to be" one. And as the child - now grown and a new father - considers the birth of his own baby, the new father hopes that he is "at least half the dad that his stepfather didn't have to be."

Written by CMA award winning and Grammy nominated Brad Paisley and songwriter Kelley Lovelace, and including a CD of the popular song, He Didn't Have to Be will be a much-given gift this holiday season and again at Father's Day.
