Pat Green released 'While I Was Away' on May 18th, and it is a tearjerker. It is a tribute to all of the parents and people who are away from their loved ones and families because of their jobs. It tells of the struggles that parents deal with when separated from their children while on the job, all the moments missed. Green told PEOPLE magazine,

This song is personal for anyone that has kids. To tell the truth, I got misty thinking of my kids when I first heard it – that's when I knew I needed to record it.

A while back I heard a rumor that Pat Green had picked up one of Zane William's songs to record. Last time he was in town, he confirmed. Check out the song sounds like from the original songwriter.
