Album: Southern Girl City Lights (2017)

Songfacts®:

  • "My Church" songstress Maren Morris wrote this track with Jeremy Spillman. Jessie James Decker told Billboard that she is a longtime fan of the Nashville singer-songwriter.

    "I signed with Big Yellow Dog, and have been with them for years," she explained. "The president of the company is a woman named Carla Wallace, who is an amazing publisher who just has a knack for female artists. Another person that is signed to the company is Maren Morris. I told Carla that I thought Maren was a great writer and wanted to cut one of her songs. So she sent me 'Hold A Candle.'"
