Faith When I Fall

Album: Up All Night (2012)

Songfacts®:

  • After moving to Nashville from Georgia, Kip Moore spent four years as a songwriter before finally signing with the MCA label. He penned this grateful cut the day after he was offered his record deal. Moore told Mike Ragogna of The Huffington Post: "I was a songwriter before I got the record deal. You're used to getting your teeth kicked in around town forever, it's a hard road. I lived in a lot of dumps. It's been a hard road to get to this point, and I'm still climbing, but I wrote this song the day after I got offered this record deal by MCA and it was an emotional day for me. Knowing my personality, I got to that point, and I was wanting to get to the next point. That's what the song is about, it's about having faith in whatever you're doing in life, just having faith and believing you're going to get to the next place."
