Gilbert who has a strong connect to our military – just got back from a USO tour – leaked a demo of a new song for his Facebook friends. The song “One Hell Of An Amen,” is a new track on his unreleased third studio album.
Here’s what he wrote about it on Facebook:
“I wrote a song with Mr. Mike Dekle, and my boy Brian Davis called “One Hell of an Amen…” this song references the loss of a US military soldier who was a close to kin to one of my closest friends from my home town… who witnessed his loss first hand while serving in active duty in Iraq…”
“The other reference in this song is about the loss of a very dear, long time, and hometown friend of mine… Who we lost to a battle with cancer… In his battle with his disease, he showed more courage and faith than words can say, and it was that courage and faith that inspired me to write the second verse of this song about him… this song is very dear to my heart…”
Brantley Gilbert is touring this summer with Tim McGraw and Love and Theft. They will be here in Tampa May 11, 2013.
