My prayers are with you in the loss of your father. I lost mine several years ago and my mom 3 years ago. I know the pain you are feeling. God will bring you thru this.

my thoughts and prayers are with you & your family.My Mom was a fan,she is an angel in heaven now, I prayed that she look over him & his loved ones.I assume that your song" God Gave Me You" applies to a relationship,however the title makes me remember her.Spend as much time with family & friends they will carry you through this process.

He looks like a very proud papa! Now we know where you got your mischievous grin from, Blake. I learned a lot this past year, like how strong we can be when we HAVE to be. I pray that you find this strength at this time.

I wasn't there that morning when my Father passed away. How blessed you are that he got to see your success & marriage to Miranda. I love alcohol just as much as you but I turned to it over pain. My heart is broken that my Dad, also named Dick aka Richard didn't get to see me as a grown woman. In the Living Years, please re-do the song country and check out my site There is a whole section about my Dad. As the song sings, thru it all, Love Remains., always. Life is hard but love remains. God Bless. What a blessing you were there and there was nothing left unsaid. No one is immune to pain for sure so stay close to those who you love, always. I fucking hate cliches' for when you have such severe loss, it just sucks beyond words and shows you what truly matters in life. I don't have words of wisdom but I do "get it" and my deepest sympathy to you and yours!

I know your heart is sad but think about happier times with your Dad. I met your Dad briefly at your Opry induction. I was sitting in the floor in front of the stage and when I stood up and turned around... there on the front row, was a handsome older "you"! Although we only spoke for a couple of minutes....Wow, you could tell how proud he was of you!
Cherish that night's memory.

As someone who just lost my husband, I know sometimes even words cannot comfort you in times like this. My husband battled cancer for almost 10 years. In that time we spent a lot of time doing whatever we could to have fun, which usually meant going to events, such as concerts. Music really does heal anything... my husband Mike passed away this past September. Although he never got to meet you, he loved your music, your humor, and everything in-between. I'll continue to carry on in his spirit, though music, and hope to see you soon. I still think of him often, and it helps me to remember all the food memories... something I will forever cherish. Here's a bible verse which I loved when Mike was dying, and when he eventually passed. It gave me a sense of comfort: 2 Timothy 4:7 - I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith"

Take all the time you need to grieve and live in the joy of your father's memory. No doubt that he is proud of you and your many accomplishments. May you, Miranda, and the rest of your family find peace in this painful time. No worries that your fans will understand your needed time and will be here for you when you return to public life. Rest easy, as you and those you love, are in our thoughts and prayers.'s picture

Blake, I'm sorry about the loss of your dad. I can tell by the photo that you were close. I'm proud of people like you, Miranda, and Reba because you are real down to earth people and you act like it. All of you grew up not far from my hometown of Sherman, Texas. Again I'm sorry about your loss but just remember the good times that ya'll shared together. Donnie Ford
