Fire Away

Fire Away is a song by Chris Stapleton

 

Stapleton is an American country & bluegrass musician with six number one hits under his belt.  He has co-written with some of the greats, Peter Frampton & Sheryl Crow.  Fire Away is a recent release with a strong message.

His songs have been recorded by many well-known artists, with Britain’s Adele being just one of them.  His debut album, Traveller released in 2015 has attracted a lot of attention & commendations, including two in the 2016 Grammy  Awards for Best Country Album & Best Country Solo Performance.

FireAway

Despite his huge success, this talented artist has partnered with changedirection , an American initiative that aims to change the culture around mental health issues.  It aims to spread awareness of the 5 signs of emotional suffering which it lists as

change in personality

agitation

withdrawal

decline in personal care

hopelessness

Stapleton’s video Fire Away is harsh & revealing.  It covers the subject of suicide, & for this reason should be watched with caution. It was made to portray many of the faces of mental illness.  I have included it here to salute the artists commitment to this cause, & in the hope that it might help someone to either make healthier decisions in their own life, or to recognise the problems of someone around them that might need help or understanding.

Please buy me some time
