The singer, who turned 85 weeks after the release of the album, released the video of the recording in black and white, with his entire crew including Mickey Raphael on the harmonica.

In recent years, the award-winning musician has lost quite a few of his near and dear ones to the grim reaper. Notable deaths in the industry included his old friends Waylon Jennings and Ray Price.

This song is definitely a reference to how each one of the deaths has deeply affected the musician and yet he has had to persevere.
