Songfacts®:

  • The opening and title track of Run Wild. Live Free. Love Strong, the song was inspired in part by Luke Smallbone's young son. Luke's brother, Joel Smallbone told NewReleaseToday: "That song deals very much with counterfeit versions, trying to live other than how we were designed to live.

    What I mean by that is when we think of freedom, most people think, 'I'll do whatever I want, whenever I want, however I want.' I would argue, looking at Luke's young son, he has freedom, but has a lot of confinement. It's in that confinement, if you will, that you find true freedom."
  • The song features a rapped verse from Andy Mineo.
