A WEEK OF TRIBUTES - 4th of July


POST 2 GATE

The first time I heard this song, Chuck performed live during a Songwriters Showcase at Poodie's Roadhouse in Spicewood TX.  This piece is a true testament to what songwriting is all about - words woven together poetically; full of heart, soul, pain and loss. 

While you might not think this fits in with the 4th of July theme, Post 2 Gate is from a real life experience. This is the story of a little boy trying to provide for his family and survive in a horrible situation he didn't ask for. And the soulful lyrics came from deep inside Chuck after experiencing the tragedy first hand... as a soldier in Afghanistan. 

This is a tribute song to top them all. Our men and women are in harm's way every day they are there. I thank God he brought Chuck Hawthorne home safe. 

I had not met Chuck until that night and now count him among my many blessings in this crazy business.
Post 2 Gate will be featured on Chuck's upcoming album.

  1. Haunting. This seems perfectly fitting for the 4th as we celebrate our freedoms. We need to remember the men and women who give so much to make sure we keep them.
