Maybe more, though, because this one has Mike Eli’s intoxicating vocals and lyrics about the note his wife left in his suitcase: “May the angels fly beside you, down every mile you roll/May heaven hear this prayer, prayer for the road.” But then the video takes the emo up a few notches by featuring a fireman watching his wife crying over him as he’s dying.
(Once you realize what’s happening, it’s similar to Carrie Underwood’s “Just a Dream.”) And here’s how I know it’s moving to the firefighters of the world: Hundreds of people have been responding on social media.
There are too many firefighter families to count, but this handful of comments shows there’s a whole new group of Eli Young Band fans out there: “Love love this song and being a Mom to 2 firefighters, wow, great job on this one, bless ya’ll! My husband and I are both firefighter EMT’s and this definitely hits home. Thank you all.” “As the wife of a fire chief/paramedic, mother of 3 firemen/EMT, a daughter in law EMT, and an AEMT myself THANK YOU!
Scott Tanksley was an amazing Fireman, husband, dad, brother and friend.” “Video is awesome and the tears are flowing. God bless our first responders and bring them home safe.” “This firefighter wife loved it too!! ” “As the wife of a firefighter, this song and video hits home.
My husband is Nick Robison, 34, and he is a Squad Leader on the Sierra Hotshots based out of Batterson in Oakhurst.
For her role in the deadly robbery of Adam Hilarie, Bustos was paid $50 in cash, police said.
Johnny Jackson told The Post that Hilarie, his brother, took Bustos to the same bowling alley the siblings used to go to as kids.
It’s not like the Eli Young Band set out to write a song about firefighters dying in the line of duty.
But then again, I watch Chicago Fire, so I at least have some concept of the dangers those heroes face every single day.
The next night, her real intentions became clear, police told The Washington Post. A brief (and sordid) history.] “Hilarie was begging for his life, he was not putting up any kind of fight, and was telling them that he had a 5-year-old daughter,” according to arrest reports obtained by the Orlando Sentinel.
Bustos, 18, brought three men with her to Hilarie’s place, including two career criminals on probation for violent felonies. When Hilarie, 27, responded to the knock on the door, the men overpowered him and dashed inside, police said. Hilarie was shot in the head and collapsed on the kitchen floor, Auburndale’s Deputy Police Chief Andy Ray told The Washington Post.
Hotshot crews are considered an elite group among wildland firefighters, due to their extensive training, high physical fitness standards, and ability to undertake difficult, dangerous, and stressful assignments.
They often respond to large, high-priority fires and are trained and equipped to work in remote areas for extended periods of time with little logistical support.” Hotshots are considered to be “the Navy Seals of wildland firefighting” due to their extensive drilling, training, and knowledge.
When I saw the new bonus video the band made for “Prayer for the Road,” a song from their 10,000 Towns album, the message got much, much deeper.
