The video cuts back and forth between different mourners catching one another's eye at Mount Olivet Cemetery, and McEntire singing her verses while walking the pews at Tulip Street United Methodist Church. No matter the losses the video's characters have experienced, they each turn to God to find strength.

"I've been asked a lot lately about why now was the right time to release this song," McEntire explained in a press release. "I think it is always the right time to give it back to Him because we seem to mess things up on our own. We all need to just love each other more unconditionally, without judgement, because we can't do this on our own." Watch the video here.

Brantley Gilbert Talks New Album 'The Devil Don't Sleep'

(Radio.com) "Anyone who knows me knows that every album is another chapter of my life," says Brantley Gilbert. Through that lens, you can look at 2010's Halfway to Heaven as the story of a man living the wild life, and 2014's Just as I Am as the story of the consequences of that life. His latest, The Devil Don't Sleep, details his next phase, including his newfound sobriety, and the discipline required to maintain it.

"A lot has happened," he says. "By now, everyone knows the story turned out okay for me. But the truth is there's always temptation, there's always something - whether it's work or substances or gambling or whatever - that can pull you off the path. For me, thankfully, I got through it, got the girl back, got to keep my career moving. Anyone who knows me knows that every album is another chapter of my life."

His songs are always relatable: "Even though it's my life, even though some of what I write about is very specific to what happens to me, I think the challenges, the places where we figure things out are all the same - no matter what we're facing, realizations all mean the same things."
