Grammy Award-winning Christian singer TobyMac recently released his eighth album, The Elements, and is now opening up about his favorite song on the record that also happens to be a very personal one.

In a recent interview with Digital Journal, TobyMac explained why "Scars," the third track on the album, is his favorite.

"'Scars' is deeply personal and for me, it is about my son. He is 20 years old and he left home and he is doing his own thing now," the artist revealed. "It's also about watching him go through tough times and get cut and bruised."

"Watching people you love go through hard things is tough, and I want people to know that they are not alone," he said.

TobyMac and his wife, Amanda, have five children together. But "Scars" is a dedication to his son Truett, who, like his father, is a musician.

"You, you're are not alone/ We've all been there/ Scars come with livin'," TobyMac sings in the chorus of the song about his eldest child.

"Now you won't take my phone calls/ You won't text me back at all/ I just wanna see you/ I can't stand to see you gone."
