Mary Gauthier “Bullet Holes in the Sky” New Song & Album

“Bullet Holes in the Sky,” a new song from singer-songwriter Mary Gauthier, can be heard below. The track is taken from her forthcoming album, Rifles & Rosary Beads, which will be released on January 26th, 2018 via Proper Records. Gauthier co-wrote the eleven songs on the album with U.S. veterans and their families, reflecting the struggles that these veterans and their spouses deal with abroad and after returning home.


About the song, Gauthier said:
I wrote “Bullet Holes In the Sky” with US Navy Desert Storm Veteran Jamie Trent. The song was born when Jamie told me that veterans get free breakfast at Waffle House on Veterans Day, with an active military ID. The song captures the thoughts of a veteran sitting in a booth alone, watching the Veterans Day Parade roll by. The feelings deep inside the service member are complex, and difficult to express. There is pride in being of service. Faith in God. Patriotism.
Sorrow, for those who were lost. And the feeling of being sadly resigned to the fact that these wars never end, and they just keep coming.”
