Brett Eldredgeis a newcomer in country music.
Already an accomplished songwriter, Eldredge is now seeing his first single release as an artist make waves on the charts. It’s one of those special songs that only comes along every few years. The kind of song that has the power to make people feel all kinds of emotion…
Raymondis the name of the song and its the story of a gentleman that works at a nursing home. He befriends a nice lady who is a resident there. She is suffering from memory loss and believes the gentleman is her son, Raymond.
Today there are people living longer and as a result it seems more of seniors are suffering from some form of memory loss in their later years. It can be a sad situation for the family and friends of those with memory loss. It’s hard to look at your grandma, mother, brother, or friend and realize they don’t remember who you are.
Raymond is a beautiful song and a beautiful story of how the man and the lady share a special bond. The lady believes she is getting to spend time with her son and the man is able to have a friend that enjoys his company.
This is an emotional song and I’ve already had people mentioning it to me and asking who sings the song about the lady with Alzheimer’s. You know a song is going to have an impact when your friends and family you normally don’t discuss music with have questions about a song.
Raymondis a special song that will likely be around for many years.
What are your emotions when you hear the song?
Having a grandmother with memory loss this song makes me think of her and all the good laughs we shared. She might not remember who I am today, but she can still remember the good times she had way back in her younger days. She’s a great lady.
