“I’m Already There” is the Song You Need for Memorial Day


Lonestar never disappoints their fans when it comes to good messages in their music. It is proven in their single “I’m Already There,” a song that’ll give us hope. It provides comfort that our families are doing well even if we are not physically there for them. It gives us the strength to know that the sacrifices we do will be worth it in the end.

Behind the song “I’m Already There”

The song was released back in 2011. It was written by Lonestar lead singer Richie McDonald together with Gary Baker and Frank Myers. They wrote the song during the tour for their successful Lonely Grill album. The song title came up because of McDonald’s conversation with his daughter.

The message of the song is quite sad since the tour almost made it impossible for the band to have family time. Though, he explained that “I’m Already There” gives hope of reuniting with your loved ones no matter what it takes.

The lead singer said this right after the 9/11 attack:

“This was a song that I wrote about being away from my family and a song that we could relate to every single night in the band being away from our families. But after 9/11 it took on a whole new meaning, especially with the men and women in the military. They spend years away from their families, and it put things in perspective for us.”

Lyrics Breakdown

He called her on the road
From a lonely, cold hotel room
Just to hear her say I love you one more time

This song resonated among the families that have someone who is away. After the 9/11 attack, this song took on a whole new meaning.

The families of the soldiers who were deployed felt the sadness of not knowing whether their loved ones will survive the war. They clung onto the meaning of the song. In addition, prayers also did wonders because it was where families drew their strength.

Until today, we are very thankful for the services of our soldiers who proudly serve our country.
