Morgan Wallen has transformed Jason Isbell’s award-winning song, “Cover Me Up,” into an eight-minute short film about a military vet with PTSD.
Jason penned the personal song for his girlfriend—now wife—Amanda Shires after struggling with sobriety. He recorded the tune for his Grammy-winning album, Southeastern. “Cover Me Up” was recognized at the 2014 Americana Music Awards as Song of the Year.
Morgan first covered Jason’s “Cover Me Up” in 2018, scoring more than 20 million streams on Spotify. Morgan’s new short film, which was directed by Justin Clough, follows the story of a young vet returning home from war and his struggles with PTSD.
