"Come Home Soon" is a song recorded by American country music group SHeDAISY. It was released in July 2004 as the second single from their album Sweet Right Here. The song was written by SHeDAISY member Kristyn Osborn with John Shanks.[1]


Group member Kristyn Osborn wrote the song with John Shanks. The song is a ballad about a woman who expresses the loneliness of her husband, who is a deployed soldier, and pleads him to "come home soon". According to Osborn, "it could be relatable to anyone who is separated from a loved one. But it was inspired by the circumstances of a soldier being taken away from his family and sent to do something he didn't understand or really want to do."[2]

The group sold "Come Home Soon" bracelets with all proceeds going to the American Red Cross.[3]
