Grammy Award-winning artist TobyMac released a song Friday dedicated to his late son, Truett Foster McKeehan, titled “21 Years.”

The song is an “honest” letter from the artist to his 21-year-old first-born who died unexpectedly at his home on Oct. 23, 2019.

TobyMac announced the song both on Instagram and Twitter.

“The last couple of months have been the hardest I’ve ever faced. Thank you for the love and support. Part of my process has always been to write about the things I’m going through, but this went to a whole new level. What started out as getting some of my thoughts and feelings about losing my firstborn son down on paper, ended up a song,” he wrote on Instagram.

Although he admits he never wanted to pen such a song, the Christian pioneer hopes the new single will help others who are also grieving a loss.

He tweeted, “’21 Years’ is a song I wrote about the recent passing of my firstborn son, Truett Foster McKeehan. I loved him with all my heart. Until something in life hits you this hard, you never know how you will handle it.”

The McKeehan family has been surrounded by people who’ve been helping them through this tragic loss and the artist says he is grateful.
