As a young songwriter, I remember my dad kept encouraging me to write something “country.” At the time, I hated country music and anything that resembled it. However, some years later, I secretly developed a liking for country music but kept that fact from my dad.
There’s something genuine and real about country music and, quite frankly, I can’t think of a better medium through which to tell a story.
So, here’s a new song for you to hear about growing in Jesus and all of the challenges that come with it. As you may have already guessed, it has that country vibe going. I like the way it came out and I really like the story it tells. I just wish my dad was still here to take a listen.
