Try Listening to this Song with Dry Eyes

Country music explores the concept of death better than any genre, and Brandy Clark writes songs better than pretty much anyone in country music. 

In this tearjerker, Brandy Clark tells a story in the shoes of someone who has just lost her father. Since You've Gone to Heaven explores the difficulties a family has to go through when adjusting to the loss of a family member. It describes true horrors that can hit close to home, including alcoholism and leading an unhealthy life. The second half of the song also chronicles a town that is facing hard times, a true fear and reality to some American people.

If someone ever asks you to show them one of the saddest country songs ever, just show them this.
