Brett Eldredge’s “Raymond”

      “Anymore” by Travis Tritt. “Whiskey Lullaby” by Brad Paisley. “What Hurts The Most” by Rascal Flatts. The main thing these songs have in common is that they bring tears to your eyes with the messages of the songs. Thousands of songs like these are released but there are only a handful that  really hit a chord and are completely relatable at the same time. Brett Eldredge’s “Raymond” is a powerful example that stands out on the sensitive subject of Alzheimer’s Disease.

    

       The song tells the story of a young man who works in a nursing home and an elderly patient, suffering from Alzheimer’s, that he brings coffee to and talks to everyday. The woman mistakes the young man as her son Raymond by telling him “to get washed up for supper before your daddy gets home.”

      It is later revealed in the song that Raymond passed away in 1971 with the young man declaring “until she can see his face again/I’m gonna fill in the best I can.” The song hits home with Eldredge as he started writing the song after having a conversation with his grandmother who suffers from dementia.
