Weeping Willow

Album: Not Released (1991)

Songfacts®:

  • The first song that Brandon Heath ever wrote was a "super sappy song for a girl named Cherish." He penned the tune when he was in 8th grade after receiving a guitar as a Christmas gift. He recalled to American Songwriter magazine: "Cherish played guitar and taught me E minor, the darkest and most brooding of chords, and I was off and running."
