The Angels Came Down by Kevin Costner & Modern West

Album: From Where I StandReleased: 2011
  • Kevin Costner & Modern West is a Country/Rock band founded by the actor Kevin Costner in 2007. The band's debut album, Untold Truths was released on November 11, 2008 by Universal South Records and peaked at #61 on the Billboard Top Country Albums. This track from their third long player became the first individual tune by the group to chart when it entered Christian Digital Songs at #8 in April 2012.
  • Costner and Modern West sung the song on April 14, 2012 at a ceremony in which a memorial was dedicated in honor of five soldiers from Fort Knox, Kentucky, who had been killed in Afghanistan. "This loss of a child, a husband, a daughter… we know that a song can't heal that," Costner said during the performance. "But, 'When the Angels Came Down,' that's what we like to think, that when our loved one was suffering the most, that angels covered them, (took) away their fear and took away the pain. And, if we can live with that idea, I think we can all sleep a little better."
  • Whilst better known as a movie actor and director, Kevin Costner made one huge contribution to popular music when he convinced Whitney Houston to cover Dolly Parton's country tune, "I Will Always Love You."
