Brantley Gilbert has released the video for his latest single, “One Hell of an Amen.” The song is a tribute to two men who passed away in recent years, including Brantley’s pal, Kory, who lost his battle with leukemia after a brave fight against the disease. A fallen war hero, named Jon, is the other person whose sacrifice inspired the song and video. Jon was the best friend of Brantley’s pal from Georgia, Josh, who served several tours of duty in Iraq.
Brantley says of “One Hell of an Amen,” “It’s easy to say the song’s about death, but to me, it’s about the good fight. It’s about the attitude, the strength and the courage those boys had for what they were going through. Kory battling leukemia and Jon fighting in Iraq…it’s about two different wars.”
The video for “One Hell of an Amen” incorporates mementos from Kory and Jon’s lives. The song is included on Brantley’s latest album, Just as I Am.
