With heart wrenching lyrics like her daddy said goodbye, her momma started to cry, he had to go and fly away again, she said momma why do people fight, and is daddy gonna die in that place called Afghanistan, “Military Man” is sure to resonate with many fans.
“This song is very personal to me, as it’s a part of my life I have not always talked about,” Pearl explains. “The pain of watching your loved ones suffer from war is tough, but the pride and love that you have for the person who served overpowers the struggle. I decided to write a song for those wives, daughters, sons, uncles, best friends, etc. of a military man. If you love your military man, this song was written for you.”
