I am a person who has this uncanny ability to always look forward. Mind you, it's not that I have never looked back in my life. Believe me, I have, and I have the scars and fail report to prove it. I just learned a long time ago that God has given humans this beautiful thing called hope. And that hope has always been an anchor for the serenity of my soul. And if I'm honest, the sanity of my mind too. It is a wonderful thing to be able to look forward to something. And that something right now for me is my new EP set to release this Thanksgiving. 

I couldn't think of a better time to release publicly songs that were birthed out of a very trying time in my life. Being able to experience the, love, loss, pain, and promise of a season and than quantify my feelings that came from it in 3-4 minute snippets called songs is a tremendous accomplishment. And I am truly grateful for the opportunity. 

"Tennessee" is a compilation of songs that came out of a difficult season in my life. The murder of my childhood hero and close relative, the loss of a ministry, the near destruction of my marriage and my own demons I struggled with. These songs represent how I came through and out on the other side. "Tennessee" represents transition. Two and a half years ago my life forever changed and God opened up a door for my family and I to pursue new horizons. To chase dreams and to make a life for ourselves we could of only dreamed of before. 

This is the beauty of God's providence and the stark reminder of a very familiar passage of scripture. "And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose." Romans 8:28. He turns terrible situations around and causes them to result in His Glory and our good. Ryan Grimshaw produced the project and He and I could not be more pleased to share it with you. If you haven't already, go to iTunes today and download the single "Tennessee". God bless you and keep trusting the one who holds your tomorrow.
