Stephen Cochran is an American Country music singer and songwriter best known for the 2007 single "Friday Night Fireside." The video was a GAC number one fan voted video for five weeks. In 2009 Stephen was named as a spokesman for the United States Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) Research and Development. The VA and Cochran collaborated to produce a music video for to communicate with VA clients.

Stephen was raised in Nashville's songwriting and recording community. Country greats Bobby Bare and the late Dale Reeves are just a few of the characters that influenced Cochran's early music home life. Cochran cultivated an interest in music beginning at Hunters Land Comprehensive High School in Nashville, TN. Later, he honored his craft in his college days at Western Kentucky University with a development deal with Epic Records. He worked his way through school writing and playing guitar. After September 2001 he joined the U.S. Marine Corps and served his country as a combat Marine in Iraq and Afghanistan. He was a part of the 2nd Light Armored Reconnaissance Battalion; 1st Marine Expeditionary Force. While on combat patrol Sergeant Cochran as injured in combat leaving his back broken. His injuries left his legs paralyzed. Stephen was told he would never walk again and he was sent home. Once he arrived home the search for a solution began. Finally, after a long struggle, Cochran's ability to walk was restored. Doctors at the Nashville VA Medical Center performed an experimental procedure called Kyphoplasty. After an extensive rehabilitation Stephen was able to return to an active lifestyle. As part of his recovery Cochran refocused his energy on Country Music. He teamed up with other Country music artists and began performing with John Rich and the MuzicMafia around Nashville. He wrote with his friend from the band Trailer Choir Vinney Hickerson and eventually they started their own writers group. In 2007 he began Armed Forces Entertainment tours of the Middle East, scores of benefit appearances on behalf of his fellow veterans, and roadwork in support of his acclaimed, self-titled debut album. In November of 2008 Cochran appeared on ABC's Good Morning America to promote the second annual "Salute to the Troops" benefit concert. In 2009 the VA asked Stephen to be the face of their research and development. Cochran wrote their new theme song, titled "Hope" and the VA is using it in their national campaign to help Veterans.
