Press Release



“I wrote ‘When I Say Amen’ with Matt Maher and Sam Ellis on March 9th, 2018. Almost exactly two years later, Nashville was hit by a tornado. I could actually hear it ripping through homes half a mile away from me while I sat in my bathroom terrified. Then I realized I hadn’t actually taken a second to pray…

Barely a week later, COVID-19 entered the picture…slowly but surely becoming the focus of every day and every conversation. Now people are losing even more…some are losing their jobs, some are losing their stability, some are losing their minds, and some are losing their hope.

Last week I listened to ‘When I Say Amen’ for the first time in a long time, and I felt a voice inside say, ‘I think you wrote this song for…this. Right now.’ I’ve never had anything like that happen to me before.” (See full quote here)
