Red Sam

Songfacts®:

  • The title comes from the names of band members JaRED Hartmann and SAMeer Bhattacharya.
  • In a TVU spot, lead singer Lacey Mosley said: "It's kinda personal, some of the stuff about it. But its really just about how I got saved. I guess when I was 16, before that I was atheist, and then I had all these things. Like I was really just kinda studying to figure out what the truth was, I guess. Then my grandpa was really, well he was having a heart attack at that time, like his 12th heart attack that he had. So I was really upset, and it was like right about that time when I guess God brought me to a place where I didn't have anything or anybody and it was the only way that I was ever going to look up and see that the only thing constant and the only thing I could depend on was God. And that's when all these supernatural things happened, and He like showed me that He was real and that He really loved me and that He wanted to do something different with my life and that's why I was alive. And so that's when I got saved." >>
