Banks

Album: Out Of Body (2020)

Songfacts®:

  • NeedtoBreathe's Bo and Bear Rinehart wrote this anthemic song with Trent Dabbs about their spouses, who are strong, patient and caring forces of nature. Their wives have supported them from the band's early days and here they use several river metaphors to assure them of their love. Like river banks, when the current gets strong they'll be there for their partners and hold them, but never hold them back.

    Bear Rinehart explained to American Songwriter: "It is a promise and a reminder that whether we are near or miles apart, our love for them grows and strengthens with every day."
  • Trent Dabbs' other credits include Ingrid Michaelson's "Girls Chase Boys," Kacey Musgraves' "High Horse," plus several songs that have been on ABC's Nashville.
  • The Chris Phelps-directed video sees the band perform the song around a campfire.
