  • The FGL duo suggest here that music is the answer to the world's ills. Inspired by Brian Kelley's "Music Is Healing" tattoo, the pair penned this song with Jordan Schmidt and Craig Wiseman while sitting in a treehouse.

    "We were all out of ideas," Kelley recalled to reporters. "We were sorting through our notes, looking for titles and all that. I was like, 'Maybe we should write 'Music Is Healing,' and then we dug in deeper: How could we write that song? We just chased it, and I think God was in the room that day."

    "Music is healing; I think we can all attest to that. That's why we're all lovers of music," he continued. "It has so many forms of healing; it's amazing."
