"The Father, My Son and the Holy Ghost"From: 'God, Family, Country' (2020)
There's simply no other track that could sit in this top spot. Morgan's pain and grief are palpable in "The Father, My Son and the Holy Ghost," the exceptionally personal song he wrote and produced solo after the death of his 19-year-old son Jerry in 2016.
"I know my boy ain't here, but he ain't gone," sings Morgan, laying his emotions out for listeners and explaining how his faith has gotten him through the hardest event of his life. "I won't completely heal 'til I go home," he admits, but while he's still here on Earth, Morgan knows Jerry is always with him.
"In the mornings, I wake up, give her a kiss, head to the kitchen / Pour a cup of wake me up and try to rouse up some ambition / Go outside, sit by myself, but I ain't alone / I've got the Father, my son and the Holy Ghost," Morgan sings in the chorus.
"As difficult as this song was to write and as difficult as it is to sing, it gives me strength in my faith in God," Morgan says of "The Father, My Son and the Holy Ghost." "My hope is it does the same for others.”
