Montgomery’s “Letters from Home”: Dedicated to our Brave Soldiers

0  comments

The music video created for this song was filmed at the Army Aviation Support Facility in Smyrna, Tenn, and featured National Guard soldiers. Actor and musician Freddy Mullins played the role of the soldier receiving the letters from home.

The song is a portrayal of a soldier’s life on overseas duty. In the song, it is mentioned how the soldier’s mother and girlfriend write to him during his time overseas. In the first two letters (the first two verses), the letters are shared with a fair share of merriment among the soldier’s comrades.

The soldier’s father is a very stubborn man in the song but eventually admits to being proud of his son, which drives the son to tears and spreads an aura of solemnity among his comrades, as mentioned in the third verse.

Men with Valor

Soldiers are typically described as strong and brave guys. They are those who fearlessly defend the countrymen against threats. A number of lives remained safe because of these men with valor.

We say we know, but sometimes we actually can’t totally grasp what goes on inside of them especially before, during, and after every war.

This song emphasized that even simple letters can supply enough strength to a soldier who is away from home to fight for his country.

I hold it up and show my buddies
Like we ain’t scared and our boots ain’t muddy
And they all laugh like there’s something funny
’bout the way I talk, when I say mama sends her best ya’ll
I fold it up and put it in my shirt
Pick up my gun and get back to work
And it keeps me drivin’ on, waitin’ on
Letters from home

Writing of the “Letters from Home”

Tony Lane and David Lee wrote the song “Letters from Home.”  John Michael Montgomery had the honored to record the song. David Lee got the idea after seeing a soldier and his girlfriend saying goodbye at the airport. It peaked at number 2 on the Billboard Hot Country Singles & Tracks chart in 2004 and also reached number 24 on the Billboard Hot 100, his highest-ever peak on that chart.

John Michael Montgomery was born in Danville, Kentucky. Montgomery received musical encouragement from his father, who played in a local country band and taught him his first chords.
