Album: single release only (2009)

Songfacts®:

  • This foot-stomping single made its broadcast television debut as the new theme song for Friday Night Knicks on the MSG Network on October 30th 2009. It was the first new song from Robert Randolph & the Family Band in three years.
  • Randolph explained: "When I wrote, 'Get There,' I was tapping into the sound and soul of our gospel roots – the true essence of the Family Band. The song speaks of moving in that positive direction. As a longtime Knicks fan, I feel that is where the team is heading."
