Dierks Bentley: Gonna Get There Someday

Today I’ll be with friends for a Decoration Day celebration in Boone County, West Virginia. I’ve been doing this since 1977 and it is a time of joy to see old friends and a time of sadness as we visit the graves of departed friends.

Our Spiritual Sunday song comes from country artist Dierks Bentley. As he sings “Gonna Get There Someday,” it is revealed that he is talking to his departed mother on the anniversary of her death. Until he says “Momma” that isn’t clear as it It could have been his wife or girlfriend.

It will be a bittersweet day for those placing flowers on the graves, but there is the hope that you’re “Gonna Get There Someday.”
