A song about heaven might not be what you'd expect from Amy Ray of Indigo Girls, but she grew up in Georgia in a very religious Methodist family. "I went to church about three days a week until I was 16," she said in our interview
. "So you can't really shake that, you know?"
Amy adds that this song was inspired by the traditional gospel songs she grew up listening to. "I love the imagery of heaven," she said. "All that is so rich to me. I also love Buddhism, but I wasn't raised a Buddhist, so I don't have all the metaphors at my fingertips."
