this week’s pick is “fire away” by chris stapleton.  it’s not all that new, but the video is.  and it’s powerful.  i loved the song before, but now it has a new meaning.  the video supports the campaign to change direction organization, which brings attention to mental health issues.

Honey load up your questions
And pick up your sticks and your stones
And pretend I’m a shelter for heartaches that don’t have a home
Choose the words that cut like a razor
And all that I’ll say is

[Chorus:]
Fire away
Take your best shot
Show me what you got
Honey, I’m not afraid
Rear back and take aim
And fire away

Well, I wish I could say
That I’ve never been here before
But you know and I know
That I’ll always come back for more
Your love might be my damnation
But I’ll cry to my grave

[Chorus x2]
