Craig Morgan just released a tear-filled music video for his emotional new single, “The Father, My Son, and the Holy Ghost.”
Like the song, the music video pays tribute to Morgan’s son Jerry, who tragically lost his life in a tubing accident in 2016. Directed by Ryan Mclemore and shot at The Gallery At Morgan Farms in Dickson, Tenn., the clip centers around an impassioned performance of the faith-filled song. According to CMT, a stained glass window of St. Michael, which is shown throughout the music video, is in memory of Jerry.
“A lot of video shoots seem to go on forever but I was honestly surprised by how quickly it went. It felt like we were done before we got started,” Morgan shared with CMT for the premiere of the video. “I thought they did an amazing job portraying the message and vision of the song.”
Since the release of “The Father, My Son, and the Holy Ghost,” Morgan has touched the hearts of millions with the deeply personal song. He hopes the music video will continue to help those who have suffered the loss of a loved one.
“Its simplicity embraces the truth of the lyrics of the song,” Morgan said of the clip. “I hope this video lifts people up. For anyone who has experienced loss, I want this song to give them the desire to pursue their faith and to have hope.”
“It woke me up at 3:30 in the morning. I was saying that whole chorus in my head and I sat up and had tears in my eyes. I laid my head back down and thought, ‘Man, there is no way I’m going to remember this. So I need to get up and write it down,’” Morgan told the publication.
With his wife, Karen, still asleep, Morgan got up and spent the next four hours putting his thoughts down on paper.
“I just cried and wrote and cried and wrote,” he explained. “To this day, having done this for 20 years, I don’t see myself as that guy. But it all started pouring out.”
“The Father, My Son, And The Holy Ghost” is at country radio now.
