Music video[edit]

The music video includes Littrell singing and playing his guitar, and showing glimpses of a father-and-son, from the time when the son as a child went to school, to when the son has grown into a young man going off to the military. In the middle of the song, the father sees on television that his son is MIA (Missing in Action), just when he had received a written letter from that son. At the end, the son comes back has returned home safely with the other soldiers. Littrell's wife Leighanne and son Baylee were seen in the video. The ghosts of some soldiers come back too, and people who lost their daughters/sons can see them before they go into Heaven.

In an alternate ending of the video, Littrell is seen walking off into the distance on a set of train tracks.


In 2007, the song was nominated to a Dove Award for Short Form Music Video of the Year at the 38th GMA Dove Awards.[2]
