American singer-songwriter Gavin DeGraw has come out with some new music, and it’s quite a tribute to his late parents.

The interpreter of “Chariot” released his 7th album, “Face the River”, entirely dedicated to his mother, who died in 2017, and to his father, who died in 2020.

“This whole record is dedicated to my parents,” he revealed on “Fox & Friends” Friday.

“It’s a series of lessons from them and a bit of a summary of their life story and their love story,” he said.

“I wanted to give them some sort of eternal life – so all I can do is write songs,” he said.

DeGraw explained that he still shared his father’s dream of becoming a musician.

The singer said that when he “caught the music bug” his parents were “really supportive”.

“My parents always dreamed of it,” he said.

“It also helped me change their lives for the better.”

DeGraw previewed her new music and performed some of her top hits at the All-American Summer Concert Series “Fox & Friends” event on Friday.

As his father battled cancer, DeGraw was able to share some of his new music with him, saying it was a “race against time”.

“I really wanted to finish this for him,” he said. “He kept telling me, ‘Play me the record. “”

DeGraw’s father had the opportunity to listen to the entire album.

It was the last time father and son spent “mindful time” together.
