One Way to Heaven

Album: No Turning Back (2015)

Songfacts®:

  • Brandon Heath wrote this bold declaration of faith with Ross Copperman (Kenny Chesney's "Pirate Flag," Justin Moore's "Point At You") and Lee Thomas Miller, (Trace Adkins' "You're Gonna Miss This," Tim McGraw's "Southern Girl.") "It's really the fundamentals: there's only one way to heaven, and that's through Jesus," Heath stated matter-of-factly. "We wrote that song in an afternoon and we did a demo."

    "I think that it's cool to just start with the fundamentals," he continued. "If you've ever believed that you earn your way to heaven by good deeds and works, you're wrong. All these myths about stairways and highways are wrong. There's no other way to heaven than Jesus. So just putting it plainly is cool."
