Losing something valuable to us could be depressing. But could there be more distressful than seeing your loved ones departing from this life one after the other? Most probably, nothing. This is what the song “This Ain’t Nothin'” would like to convey. Craig Morgan is perhaps the best artist to record this song considering it having a significant bearing on his personal life. The singer had lost his mother, Betty Sue, who succumbed to cancer at the time the song was released.
“It’s especially tough now after having lost my mom. Everything I sing — in particular, ‘This Ain’t Nothin’ — takes on a whole new meaning. But that’s what country music is.”
The Best Mainstream Inspirational Song
While things may not be easy for him during those times, his personal adversity, somehow, has its bright side. In 2010, the song garnered the title Best in Mainstream International Song at the Inspirational Country Music Awards. In addition to this, the singer brought home the Mainstream Country Artist of the Year award from the same program.
Written by Chris DuBois and Kerry Kurt Phillips, the song radiates a poignant story about losing those that are valuable in your life. At the same time, the tune emits some kind of inner strength that sustains someone facing life’s storms. In the song, the narrator tells an old man’s heartbreaking fate. The elderly told a report that a tornado just destroyed his home. At that same moment, he remembered the loved ones that he lost – his father, a brother, a friend, and most recently, his wife of fifty years. He then explains that losing a house is nothing compared to those important persons in his life.
“This Ain’t Nothin'” was recorded as the fourth single from Morgan’s fifth studio album That’s Why. Watch the song’s music video below.
