Country singer-songwriter Trace Adkins has dropped a new song, “Empty Chair,” that pays tribute to military heroes.
In an Instagram post, Adkins described the songs as “a special tribute to the men & women in uniform who have lost their lives in the line of duty. ‘Empty Chair’ is a song dedicated to those who never returned home. It is for everyone who has loved & lost a hero.”
Adkins also released a video along with the song, which features pictures that fans sent to the singer of veterans and their families, paying tribute to their service and lives.
“Those that somehow survived came home, went on to build their lives/never charging us a penny for the debt we owe to them/but you can almost smell the gunsmoke and the foxholes that they shared/on the days they raise their coffee and toast the empty chair,” Adkins sings.
“Empty Chair” will feature on Adkins’ upcoming 13th studio album to be released on Verge Records.
