ABILENE, Texas -

Jordan Shipley and his wife Sunny Leigh Shipley dropped by KTXS This Morning Friday to talk about their new music project.

The Shipleys recently recorded "Don't Let Me Sink," a song they co-wrote. They are donating the iTunes profits from the song to Holden Uganda.

Holden Uganda is a Snyder based non-profit building fresh water wells in Uganda. Their efforts are in memory of Sunny's sister Haley who died at the age of 15. A well in Uganda was dedicated to the memory of Haley. 

Jordan and Sunny met at the age of 13 in Rotan. Sunny attended Texas Tech and graduated from Belmont University. Jordan attended the University of Texas and quickly became a football star there. Jordan went on to play in the NFL with the Cincinnati Bengals.

The music video is currently on youtube. You can also follow the Shipleys on Twitter @Jordan_Shipley or @SunnyShipley.
