A year ago tomorrow - Friday, August 20th, 2011 - we lost our Nora who was a mother, a daughter, a sister, an aunt, and a friend. She left us at the young age of 42 and we all miss her more than words can say ~ God bless and keep you, Nora.
I cry everytime I hear this song. Miss my son who died January 14, 2010 due to oxycontin. I love you, Michael.
Just lost my bestfriend almost a year ago to a terrible car accident . Song means so much to me ! He was 26 and had two Daughters neither of which were more than a Year old yet ! This song reaches on so many levels !
This is the most beautiful, most heartfelt song I've ever heard. What a beautiful tribute from one amazing friend to another.

What a moving tribute. I just love Toby Keith...big guy with a big heart to go with his personality as well.
Love this song. So moving, so meaningful. What a lovely tribute.
Love this song, so moving, so meaningful.
My Mom and I both cried our eyes out when we first watched this video. It's truly beautiful. We will always remember that wonderful smile and this song truly catches that smile and spirit. My best memory of Wayman will be running into him at the Phoenix airport several years ago and our family setting the place abuzz with our excitement of "There's Wayman!!". He flashed that gorgeous smile and greeted us like we were old friends. He was truly a great man and he will be lovingly remembered by all Oklahomans - even by us die-hard Cowboy fans. Thank you, Toby!!
A true testament of friendship! Toby Keith writes his songs from his heart. God Bless him. May he and Wayman's family find peace in the memories they hold.
made me tear up. i love this song. it is so sad. this song is amazing. sorry for the loss.
What a blessing for these two real men to have known each other and been there for each other. REAL HEROES for us all!!
I think this is the greatest way to pay tribute to a geeat friend and it brings tears to my eyes every time I hear it - God Bless Wayman's family and God Bless Toby Keith
I AM A LOVER OF R&B, BUT I JUST "LOVE" TOBEY.THE FIRST SONG I EVER HEARD HIM SING WAS --HOW DO YOU LIKE ME NOW-AND I LOVED IT--BUT THIS SONG IS AMAZING--I WOULD LOVE TO MEET TOBEY.
As someone who has lost many close family members this song evokes all the feelings related to those losses. Especially that we cry more for ourselves and what we have lost. Thanks for this wonderful tribute to your friend and all the feelings related to that loss.
Say what you will about Toby Keith, but the man writes songs that provoke strong emotions. The love he had for his friend is palpable and there is no more fitting tribute a person can receive than to be so loved. Toby, you gave Wayman just as much as he gave you, and now you've given his children a beautiful gift they will cherish forever. I think I'll cry my way through it again, crying for my own losses. Thanks, man.
What a wonderful song Toby! I'm sure Wayman is sitting in heaven smiling down on you for this one.
I am an old hippie not a country fan at all. I am also a big OU fan and a Waymand fan both basketball and jazz. I must admit I dont think there could be a better tribute. I remember being at the game when he broke the NCAA scoring record. After the game I stood by the exit to the locker room. When Waymand walked by I said great game. Even after all the interviews he had just done he took the time to stop shake my hand and say thanks and flashed that great smile. Great tribute to a great man
Not being a sports or jazz fan, I was not familiar with W. Tisdale, but after hearing this song and watching the video, I checked him out on the Net. The world lost a gifted man and beautiful human being far too soon. Your tribute to him was very moving and soulful. I will always love this song and video for many reasons now. God bless you, Toby!
I watched Tiz play in Phoenix. I cried when I saw this video. Thank you Toby
I first saw this video as I awoke at 3am. I never watch CMT but for some reason it was on the channel and as the video played, it really touch me especially since I am a big Wayman Tisdale fan (basketball and jazz). He will be greatly missed, but Toby Keith has and will touch alot of lives with this song/video. Big ups to you Toby Keith.
you are one of a kind
I wish all the "haters" on other sites could see this and realize people can be friends despite racial difference.
I've lost so many friends during my short life,and i'm thanking you for this song that keeps me thinking of them
You both are HEROS to many!
Toby thank you for a wonderful tribute to an exceptional human being. Wayman came to OU my JR year. Wayman was always smiling and always positive. If only we could all display those traits.
It says a lot about a friend who can write a song about his friend with such passion,we all should be so lucky.Absolutely the best tribute anyone could ask for.
Having gone to school with Wayman (and actually meeting him), I truly appreciate your tribute, Toby. His smile could light up a room--and God gave him that special smile to match his special personality.
Touching and heartfelt tribute. Both Toby Keith and Wayman Tisdale have made a difference in many lives.
Cudos Toby this song shows what a great friend you lost. God Bless You Toby and he will be watching over you every day. This you can be sure of. Thanks for a great song.
What a BEAUTIFUL song I'm sitting here crying and smiling at the same time. This is a type of friendship that everyone wants. GOD BLESS AND KEEP YOU TOBY!
I love this video
Toby Keith you are one of a kind. our son Brad passed away unexpected two weeks ago,I bought the album before Brad passed. that song was owesome and was played at our sevice. Brad was a super star to all his family and friends. Thank you for the beautiful song!
my favorite song ever.
AWESOME SONG, LEAVE IT TO TOBY!!
You can picture the angels serenading this in Heaven and your friend sitting there smiling. Your friend is holding your soul tightly in his hands. You really touch people with your music Mr. Keith, I hope to meet you someday and just give you a warm hug. God Bless You.
its been a year ago this past september since i found my best friend of 28 years, dead in her bed. she dief from an Aneurysm in her brain. It was so sudden...no one had any idea that she would be going to bed to never wake up again. It has been very hard for her fanily and children. I know that my pain can not compare. But, you have gotten so close in explaining it in your song. Thank you from all the friends that have suffered the lost of someone they will never best able to replace.
God Bless you through the rough times ahead....time does make it better. But you never forget them.
Toby Keith what an artist, person you are and Thank You for sharing your feelings & words. This song will be with me forever. I was on my way to work when I first heard this song, I cried the whole way and each time I hear it, I shed tears. I lost 2 brothers in the last two years and your words are truly how I feel about them. I felt honored that my brothers called me friend just as I am sure you feel about Wayman calling you his friend. Thank you for having your heart and the comforting words you share.
WOW! I could not tell you the name of any other of your songs, Mr. Keith (don't listen to too much radio); however, I will NEVER forget this one! I just heard part of an interview you had with ACC then they played the song. I immediately google it to play it again. Many times people only consider the "family" of an individual who dies, but family members are not the only ones who suffer. I normally don't care for music videos but this one is incredible! What a tribute to the memory of your friend. Like several of the posts below have stated, you have expressed what many feel and have given comfort to others through your song. Thank you for sharing your heart.
THIS VIDEO REALLY HITS HOME, MY SON JACOB WAS KILLED IN A HELICOPTER CRASH LAST YEAR, AND HEY IF YOU KNEW HIM, THIS WOULD BE HIS SONG. HE ALWAYS HAD A GREAT BIG SMILE AND HE LOVE FOR MUSIC IS WHY I LISTEN TO THE WORDS OF A SONG AND NOT THE MUSIC!!
I loved this song. It is one of your best! Thanks for sharing your feelings in this song. Many of us feel this way at the loss of someone close to us. I loved watching Wayman Tisdale at Oklahoma! Thanks again! You are a top performer and I have alot of respect for you!
I just lost a young married couple who were in the charmed phase of their life to a horrific car accident. The pain we feel when friends and exceptional humans are taken is difficult to put in words. Toby put a voice to the pain so many of us have at such a difficult time. What an honor, Toby, it must have been to have had such a great spirited man call you friend.
When I first heard this song I cried the entire drive to work. And now that I've seen the video I'm crying again.
This is possibly the best song that says exactly what anyone who's lost a dear friend is feeling. Toby you are truly a genuine artist and thank you for sharing your words, voice and music with the world. Wayman Tisdale was a bright light with that smile and was part of the best Sacto Kings team that ever existed.
I can't get enough of this song. Anyone who has lost a close friend knows what he's sing about, you feel it too.
What a tribute! Only you Toby. Love ya Toby
You are the greatest Toby
i love you
What an awesome tribute to an awesome man. Toby, there'll be a special place in Heaven for you right next to Wayman. God Bless You.
