Craig Morgan Drops Powerful Song “The Father, My Son and The Holy Ghost”
It’s been just a little over three years since Craig Morgan and his family had to deal with the terrible reality of his son, Jerry, dying in a tubing accident on a lake close to their house. The nineteen-year-old was one of four children and in the wake of their loss, Morgan and his family have grieved, keeping their faith as a cornerstone in their lives.
Today (Aug 30th) he releases his first new music in three years, a song written solely by Morgan, that honors not only his son but the faith he has used to get him through this horrific time and the belief that he will see Jerry again one day. “The Father, My Son and the Holy Ghost” while a slow ballad, is inspirational, telling the story of what Morgan deals with and has overcome in the aftermath of losing Jerry. “But the pain of this was more than I’d ever felt before, yeah I was broke” he croons in the second verse, only to continue the process of crying and turning that emotion around to praying to God and finally little by little receiving hope.
“In the mornings I wake up give her a kiss, head to the kitchen / Pour a cup of wake me up and try to rouse up some ambition / Go outside sit by myself but I ain’t alone / I got The Father and my son and the Holy Ghost”
The listener is brought along on this ride with Morgan filled with anguish and sadness as he closes out the track with the lyrics, “One day I’ll wake up and I’ll be home, with The Father, my son, and The Holy Ghost.” In his delivery, you feel the agony as well as the confidence and conviction that he knows his son is no longer with him on Earth but that he is not gone.
Back in 2017 Morgan debuted The Gallery at Morgan Farms, a family-owned and operated a farm-to-home business in his hometown of Dickson, TN. The store features a variety of artisan items handmade by him and his family.
