Invisibly Shaken

Album: If You're Going Through Hell (2006)

  • Lyrics
  • In this piano ballad which Atkins co-wrote with Bill Kirsch, a man pretends to be composed about splitting up with his girl, but is in fact, "invisibly shaken, quietly breaking, desperately taking one breath at a time."
  • This was originally included on Lee Greenwood's 2003 album Stronger Than Time. Greenwood is Atkin's label mate with Curb Records.
  • Atkins revealed to AOL that he had to push for this to be included on the album. He recalled: "I've always loved singing that song. I turned it in and it got passed on. A&R at the time didn't acknowledge I turned it in, but the reaction we got from the crowds was such that I just forced it on there. We cut it and now it's a single."
