(AP) When Ty Field-Smalley killed himself in 2010, his parents devoted themselves educating others about the dangers of bullying.


It led Kirk and Laura Smalley to the anti-bullying organization Stand for the Silent.


It was an issue country music singer Morgan Frazier understood. She was bullied so badly for two years in elementary school that her mother pulled her out after fifth grade in favor of home schooling.


Frazier went on to record the song "Hey Bully" about her experience. The song and Stand for the Silent were featured on the hood of Kevin Swindell's car in Friday's night's Nationwide Series race at Charlotte Motor Speedway.


For Frazier, it was part of a weeklong effort with the Smalleys of visiting schools to educate against bullying.
