Thank you Lee Brice for giving us the BEST MUSIC created by man.
Congratulations to the writers of the 2014 ACM Song of The Year, "I Drive Your Truck", Connie Harrington, Jimmy Yeary and Jessi Alexander and thank you for giving us the words that express EXACTLY how we all feel, wanting to express gratitude for all those that have sacrificed so much in the battle to give us the freedom we've enjoyed over the past 250 plus years here in the USA.
Specifically, THANK YOU to Army Sgt. 1st Class Jared Monti who was killed in Afghanistan. He was trying to save a fellow soldier. The song was written after his dad Paul described how he feels when he drives his son's truck now that he gone.
R.I.P. Jared and everyone who has given all for the Red, White and Blue.
If you missed it, here is the performance Lee Brice gave last night at the Academy of Country Music Awards that was so heartfelt.
To me, THIS is exactly what Country Music is all about. -Michael J
