Growing up, you experience it all…
The highs feel like the top of the mountaintop, and the lows can feel like the depths of Hell sometimes, but when you reach a certain age, you know it’s all worth it because it shapes you into the person you are today.
Yes, I know, but you don’t truly realize it until you hit a certain age.
Eddie Montgomery, one of the original members of Montgomery Gentry for those of y’all who live under a rock, dropped his latest single “My Son” today, and as the title shows, it reads like a letter from a father to a son.
In the song, he sings about how even though a father and a son are the same blood, the son can can look back on the mistakes his father has made and learn from them.
And even if everything’s falling apart, the son can always keep one thing in mind…
He’ll always have his dad.
This song had to have been incredibly difficult for Montgomery, as his son passed away almost exactly six years ago. And back in 1991, he lost another son to a car accident.
However, according to an interview with People, “My Son” was a way to cope:
“It was hard at first but for some reason, this song eased a little bit of the pain that I’ve been carrying around for a long time.
A lot of us love people and we try to keep our private life our private life, but when you are hurting a bit, that hurt can come through a pencil… and that’s when you know you got to let it out. So that’s what I did.”
