But he’s not your typical rise to fame and deal with the glory kind of musician.

Easton is the son of a soldier. He put all his thoughts and emotions into this song and touches on how his dad and all the other soldiers are separated from family for long periods of time.

This Uniform’s For You” was written and dedicated to his dad. In the video’s description, Easton shares his story as to how and why he wrote this song.

You’ve got to feel for him and all the other kids with military parents.

“I was inspired to write this song so that I could share my experience as a young child and having my dad go away to war. I wanted my dad to know how proud I am that he serves in the military and how much I respect the Uniform he wears. I know firsthand that when a family member serves, their entire family serves and sacrifices with them.”

Easton shares.

Easton was four when his dad gave him a uniform that matched his father’s. Dad wore his uniform for his son and so Easton wore his to fill his dad’s shoes when he was away on deployment.

The lyrics are so touching. If you’re the crying type, better have tissue by your side.

In fact, Easton’s song touched lots of viewers.

“I love your song and hope whatever your dreams are with your music come true! My husband is in the military on his 4th deployment, and our oldest son is experiencing this for the 3rd time at 11 years old- He now has 3 little sisters and a little brother.”

It’s a comment that captures everyone’s thoughts on this beautiful song.
