Brantley Gilbert’s Tribute to Military Members Who Lost Their Lives in Afghanistan

On August 26, eleven U.S. Marines, a Navy hospital corpsman, and one Army soldier were killed, and there were at least eighteen wounded U.S. service members after two explosions rocked an area outside Kabul, Afghanistan’s airport. The terrorist attack came as thousands gathered in a frantic and hopeless effort to escape after the Taliban’s takeover of the country.

Recognizing the tragic loss of life, Brantley Gilbert posted an unreleased track called “Gone But Not Forgotten” on his social media

Gilbert co-wrote the heartfelt song with Brock Berryhill, Jason Blaine, and Jay Brunswick in early 2018 to sing praises to the country’s servicemen and women – including those first responders and everyone we rely on, keeping us safe and protected in our daily lives. 

The singer-songwriter noted that he shared the song, hoping that it would help people find healing and would resonate with those who need to hear it. And indeed, it does! Soon, fans were reaching out to Gilbert, telling him the song was the right tribute to their loved ones who had passed away.

Many fans have also gifted him with military medals, coins, and ribbons to thank the country hitmaker. In return, Gilbert proudly exhibits these mementos in his home in Georgia.

And finally, on September 17, the country crooner officially released the emotion-filled ballad. He added that he would soon be sharing a music video for the song, and it will focus on the reason why supporting military members is so important.

But this wasn’t the first time Gilbert has written and released a dedication to the military. One of Brantley Gilbert songs is about a soldier’s death who was like a brother to one of his close friends. It’s called “One Hell of an Amen.”

Anyway, you can listen to Brantley Gilbert’s “Gone But Not Forgotten” by playing the video below.
