Blake Shelton is a fan of Craig Morgan’s new song, “The Father, My Son, and the Holy Ghost,” and he wants everyone to know it.

The superstar took to Twitter earlier this week to praise his dear friend Morgan over the heart-wrenching song, which Morgan wrote following the tragic death of his son, Jerry.

“I would gladly give up my spot on country radio to get this song on,” Shelton shared in a heartfelt Tweet.

“You blow me away brother,” he continued. “There’s nothing easy or fun about writing a song like this but sometimes it’s just something you gotta do.”

Shelton then made it his mission to help bring the song to the top of charts.

“Come on everybody this song deserves to be number 1 at least on iTunes,” the longtime The Voice coach urged. “Tweet your friends, tag the song. All people need to do is hear it once. They will want to own it. This song deserves to be recognized.”

Shelton didn’t stop there. In the days since his initial Tweets, he’s continued to champion the song as it makes its way up the streaming charts. He even urged country radio programmers to play the song.

“I’m asking any DJs that see this tweet to please give this song 1 chance on your show on this day of all days,” he wrote on the morning of September 11. “Watch what happens.”

Craig Morgan wrote and produced the deeply personal and emotional “The Father, My Son, and the Holy Ghost” himself. The song is Morgan’s first release in over three years.
