He continued, “What started out as getting some of my thoughts and feelings about losing my first born son down on paper, ended up a song. ‘21 Years’ is a song I never wanted to write. I hope it’s for someone out there, or maybe it’s just for me.”

“I wanted to tell you how proud I was of you last night. Your show was amazing and I think you the ‘it’ factor, which is very important but unexplainable. Your joy is infectious, and you invite people into it. But one more thing, I was very, very, very proud of you when you went down and stood on the front row after most people left,” he wrote. At the time, Truett replied, “Love you dad. Thank you so much. You have always believed in me.”
