Being an Army wife, I always get really excited when there’s a new song that praises our military, which Country Music seems to do pretty well. I just came across the new song from Trace Adkins, and it got me in the feels a little bit. It’s called “Empty Chair” and it’s a great salute to those who fought and sacrificed so much for our country.
Maybe it’s just me getting older, or just more aware as the years go on as a military spouse of how incredible our servicemen and women are, but songs like this need to happen more. As a whole, our population tends to forget what our soldiers went through in the past (and still go through on the daily) to protect our rights and freedoms. It seems that we can be too busy complaining about our country and being ridiculously sensitive about every little thing to really appreciate how great we have it here. We’re lucky. And it’s because of those who fought for it that we can enjoy so many freedoms. Remember that, ok?
Ok, I’m not going to get too soapboxy because I ate too much Mexican food tonight, and I just want to sleep.
Thank you, Trace Adkins, for this song! And as always, THANK YOU to our military.
