Gilbert shared with The Boot, that he initially wrote this song to prepare for the day that his children would see his flaws. "They're gonna know sooner than other children know about their dads, that I'm not a superhero. I don't have a cape, and I can't fly,"he explains. "I wanted them to have a song that they could listen to and know, 'At one point, you're gonna figure out I'm not a superhero, and you're gonna need more than me. Hopefully I've done my job well enough to show you that when that time comes, there is a man who really did hang the moon, and who's got your back now, and always will.'"
"Man That Hung The Moon" was released on June 16 following his latest single, "What Happens In A Small Town" featuring Lindsay Ell.
