There are many songs that can help you cope with losing a child. Whether you’re trying to move on with your life, or you’re just grieving, these tunes can be comforting. Some of the best are sung by famous artists. These include Cole Swindell’s ‘Lost a Daughter’, Ed Sheeran’s ‘Small Bump,’ Natalie Grant’s ‘First Time I Ever Saw Your Face’, and Steve Wariner’s ‘Holes in the Floor of Heaven’.
Cole Swindell’s ‘Lost a Daughter’
Cole Swindell has lost his mother. The country singer revealed the news on his Instagram story. She passed away in 2013, just a year after he lost his father. He credited his mother with helping him grow into the man he is today. In a recent interview with Pop Culture, he also talked about his strong bond with his mother.
Sadly, Cole Swindell’s mother passed away in September. As a result, he needs to remember the importance of soaking up the successes that come his way. He was nominated for two trophies during the CMT Music Awards on Monday.
Despite the tragic events surrounding the passing of his father, Cole Swindell is a strong supporter of our troops. He has donated to the USO and donated $1 from each album sold at his official store. His fans have taken his cause seriously. They have also embraced his love for country music.
In high school, Swindell played many sports, including football, baseball, basketball, and golf. He also participated in track and field. His music video revisits his high school years. The video even features his former football field. Despite his musical talents, Swindell’s mother was not an artist.
Cole Swindell’s father, William Keith Swindell, passed away in 2013. Cole Swindell’s song about his father, ‘Lost a Daughter’, is dedicated to his father. It was co-written with Ashley Gorley, a country songwriter who has penned hits for Carrie Underwood, Luke Bryan, and Jason Aldet.
Ed Sheeran’s ‘Small Bump’
The song is about a miscarriage, and its lyrics evoke a sense of sadness and grief for both mother and child. It describes the unborn child, and even tries to portray what it might look like. While it is difficult to imagine losing a child, the song is a powerful reminder of the precious humanity of the unborn child.
The song is Ed Sheeran’s fifth single from his debut album +, and it debuted at number 25 on the UK Singles Chart. In Australia, it was released as a sixth single, following “Give Me Love.” However, the song did not become a chart-topper there.
Natalie Grant’s ‘First Time I Ever Saw Your Face’
‘First Time I Ever Saw Your Face,’ from Amy Grant’s fifth album, is an uplifting love song that is sure to make your heart sing. The singer has opened up about her experiences dealing with mental illness, and her words have a lasting impact. Her heartfelt words are backed up by her actions.
The singer and songwriter is a mother of three daughters, including twins. She is happily married and enjoys her roles as a wife and mother. Her twin daughters, Grace Ana and Isabella Noelle, are now nine years old and in the fourth grade. While writing her “Glimmer Girls” series, Grant was searching for a chapter book for her twin daughters. She wanted to make sure that her daughters learned the foundational lessons of faith.
Grant’s self-titled debut album was released in 1999, and she has kept faith at the center of her career. Her newest album, No Stranger, earned a Grammy nomination for Best Contemporary Christian Album. The album also includes the Dove-nominated “Even Louder” and the worship anthem “My Weapon”.
In the song, Grant shares her personal experience with body shaming at a doctor’s visit. Body shaming is a growing problem in our society. Women who are larger than a single digit size are constantly scrutinized in the media and often get shunned in their own society. This can have devastating consequences on women. Natalie Grant was taking her daughter for an annual checkup, and she and her daughter stepped on a scale to get her height and weight. As they waited for the doctor, they were joined by another mother and daughter.
The singer was diagnosed with thyroid cancer in October, but she continued to sing. The surgery was a success. The surgeon removed about half of the thyroid and confirmed that she had cancer. A few weeks after her surgery, Grant began practicing vocal warm-ups. She also began singing and arranging music for youth choirs. When the diagnosis came, she posted a video on Facebook about her condition and her upcoming surgery. The post was quickly shared and viewed over one million times.
Steve Wariner’s ‘Holes in the Floor of Heaven’
“Holes in the Floor of Heaven” is considered one of the saddest country songs of all time. It was written by Wariner and Billy Kirsch, and it was based on Wariner’s personal experiences with loss. His wives were involved in the writing process, and without their input, the song wouldn’t have been as moving or touching as it is today. In the years since the song’s release, it has received several awards, including two Country Music Association Awards and an Academy of Country Music award.
The music video for the song was directed by Michael Salomon, and features Wariner sitting in a living room surrounded by shadows. The video ends with an unexpected apparition – holes in the floor of heaven! While the lyrics may not have aged well, the song is still a worthy listen.
