“It’s not the person refusing to let go of the past, but the past refusing to let go of the person.”
To this day, Jason Isbell’s “Cover Me Up” is still of of my all-time favorite songs, and Morgan Wallen did it some serious justice. With a song as powerful as this one, a song as iconic as this one, you’re always hesitant to appreciate anything other than the original, but I call ’em like I see ’em and Morgan did a great job with it.
And what’s more, he did a great job with the video as well.
Shining a spotlight light on PTSD, the 8-minute music video tells the story of a solider that returns home from active duty and it paints the all-too-real picture of the difficulties that can come with acclimating back to civilian life. It’s a heavy conversation, but one that definitely needs to be had.
“Grateful every day for the service and sacrifices of our nation’s veterans. Hopeful that this will start to shed a light on every aspect of their lives. Love this song and everything it means.” – Morgan Wallen
