how this song came together: "On one of my trips back home to Austin, I decided to detour through Dallas and see if my friend, Cary Pierce was around. Cary has been someone I have enjoyed writing with since our song, 'Unfailing Love,' landed on Arriving. Fortunately and divinely appointed, Cary had just cancelled a family trip and was home for the weekend. We spent a couple of days writing some songs together. He played me a demo he had recently worked on, and I was really excited about a song on there called 'Love.' I asked Cary if I could take the song with me and work on it a bit and see what happens. Well, I wish you could hear the different turns that this song has taken to be what you hear on the record now. From Cary's first demo, to my demo, to the final product after Ed Cash got through with it is quite a journey. I remember Ed hearing the song and immediately commenting that he thought it should be more of a world sounding song, with world percussion and instruments. Admittedly, I was nervous about this idea at first, but then began to hear and see how it was coming together. But that's just the half of it. Ed then suggested that it might be cool to have an African children's choir on the track as well. I joked, 'Yes, that would be amazing, but we are in Nashville and how is that going to happen?' A few short days after this initial thought, Matt (Ed's assistant) gets a text that says the Watoto Children's Choir from Uganda was in town for a concert and had a day off in the city. Unbelievable! The Watoto ministry is one I had recently become acquainted with, and so for it be them was just even more amazing to me. These beautiful kids are AIDS orphans. Who better to sing a song called "Love"? The way this song was finally recorded is truly a gift from God. It was truly one of the greatest days I've ever experienced in the studio. I hope you can hear the hope in the voices of the Watoto Children."
