2. Matt Kennon- The Call

Sometimes one phone call is all it takes to bring somebody from the brink of suicide, which is the message in Matt Kennon’s “The Call.” In the first verse of the song, a man is sitting in his truck about to commit suicide, when a friend calls and invites him to hang out at the lake. After realizing how much he’ll be missed, the man decides to put the gun down, and thanks his friend for calling- “I better let you go man, I really hope I didn’t catch you in the middle of anything / He said you kinda did but I don’t mind at all / I’m glad you called.”
