I Drive Your Truck

Writing in National Review Online, Lee Habeeb tells the story of Paul Monti, who lost his son Jared in Afghanistan, and the way in which Mr. Monti copes with his loss.  Habeeb was deeply affected by an NPR radio show in which Monti told his story, and as it turned out, was not alone.  A Nashville songwriter listening to the same broadcast was likewise moved, and with the help of two co-writers, turned Monti's story into a song, which was soon afterwards recorded by singer Lee Brice.

This, of course, is but a brief summary.  Read the full story at the above link.
