There is no greater love than this. There is no greater gift that can ever be given. To be willing to die, so another might live -- there is no greater lover than this.
This is life we've been given, made to be lived out, so...live out loud.
If in the morning when you wake, If the sun does not appear, I will be here. If in the dark we lose sight of love, Hold my hand and have no fear, I will be here. I will be here, When you feel like being quiet, When you need to speak your mind I will list
What I've felt most inspired by is that, like Scripture, when you reach the end of the story, it's a new beginning.
I will carry you to Jesus. He is everything you need. I will carry you to Jesus on my knees.
When love takes you home and says you belong here/The loneliness ends and a new life begins/When love takes you in.
I love Christmas music and there's nothing like getting together with friends at Christmas time to celebrate with music the incredible reality of the Savior's birth.
I'm really speechless this time.
There's obviously always danger in making music or art for art's sake. Even as Christians we can be guilty of that, being more about the art than the Artist who gave us this gift.
I've been here 21 years, and I literally did walk up and down Music Row trying to break into the business. I felt very free to go into any publishing company.
Country music is just country. It's going to shift around a little bit, doing some different instrumentations, different production styles. But it will always come back to what you heard at the Opry. Nobody wants it to change.
There's nothing like a good cheating song to make me want to run home to be with my wife.
As soon as you're willing to humble yourself and say, God, please help -- then you can find out that His strength really is perfect, that He really does care for you, that He does really want to meet your need.
Success breeds volume, and it's just amazing how many young writers, artists, and musicians there are in town.
That's one wonderful thing about country music - it shifts, ebbs, and flows stylistically, unlike pop music.
