The Zac Brown BandBrown Band recently announced their newest album, Welcome Home, will be released in May and they are coming out of the gate strong with the album’s first single.

“My Old Man” is one of the most reflective and heart-warming songs to hit country radio in a decade. On top of that, the musicality is beautiful without even a drop of the lyrics. The strings will bring you tears just as quickly as the lyrics will.

You might want to call your dad before you watch the lyric video.

[Verse 1]
He was a giant
And I was just a kid
I was always trying
To do everything he did
I can still remember every lesson he taught me
Growing up learning how to be like my old man

[Verse 2]
He was a lion
We were our father’s pride
But I was defiant
When he made me walk the line
He knew how to lift me up
And when to let me fall
Looking back, he always had a plan
My old man

My old man
Feel the callous on his hands
And dusty overalls
My old man
Now I finally understand
I have a lot to learn
From my old man

[Verse 3]
Now I’m a giant
Got a son of my own
He’s always trying
To go everywhere I go
Do the best I can to raise him up the right way
Hoping that he someday wants to be
Like his old man


My old man
I know one day we’ll meet again
As he’s looking down
My old man
I hope he’s proud of who I am
I’m trying to fill the boot of my old man

My old man
