“Wow! I’m so completely humbled by all the support the world has shown this song,” said Craig. “Blake Shelton. You are an awesome friend and champion for country music. We love ya, and I cannot thank you enough. The support the entire entertainment community and music fans have shown is a testament to the love that country music embodies. This song is a God thing. My hope is that it reaches all who need to hear it. My son Jerry’s work on earth did not end with his passing. THANK YOU, everyone.”

And it worked. From Sept. 9—the date of Blake’s first tweet referencing the tune—to Sept. 12, the song moved from No. 75 on the iTunes Country Songs chart to No. 1.The tune also reached No. 1 on the all-genre iTunes Top Songs chart.

Blake mentioned Craig’s song in more than 20 tweets. He also got some of his famous friends involved via Twitter, including Ellen DeGeneres, Carson Daly, Meghan Trainor and more.
