I Give All My Love to You

Album: Good Thing Going (2008)
  • Rhonda Vincent originally wrote this song as a surprise for her friend - and fan club president - Julia Mottesheard. She had taken on the task of planning Julia's wedding and wanted to write a special song to sing at the ceremony. "I just went and picked up a piece of paper. She (had) said 'I'm not just going to ever find anybody.' I started writing down these thoughts, things she'd told me," Rhonda remembered. She even left the song in her living room so her husband and daughter could contribute their ideas. The wedding video of Rhonda performing the song can be found on YouTube.
  • The album version of this song is a duet with Russell Moore of the Bluegrass group IIIrd Tyme Out.
