After sharing a clip of the song on Instagram in late August following the attack on the airport in Kabul, Afghanistan that killed 13 members of the United States’ military, fans begged the Georgia native to release the full song.
“We shared the song thinking some folks might find healing,” Gilbert shares. “It touched more lives than we ever could have imagined. Now that the song is released, I hope it helps to ease some of the pain and heartbreak for more folks out there that could use it.”
Out now, “Gone But Not Forgotten” was co-written by Gilbert alongside Brock Berryhill, Jason Blaine and Jay Brunswick.
The emotional track was originally penned in 2018 but seemed to take on new meaning this year. The collaborators co-wrote “Gone But Not Forgotten” in an effort to honor servicemen and women, first responders and all those who we rely on that serve and protect, keeping us safe in our daily lives.
Gilbert will soon release a music video for “Gone But Not Forgotten” that will honor his very own family and loved ones who have served.
Fans have long felt compelled to thank Gilbert for his longtime support of the military and have often gifted him with military medals, coins and ribbons as a thank you. Gilbert displays those gifts in his man room, aka “Dawg House,” at his home in Georgia.
