Otherside

Album: Revelation (2008)

Songfacts®:

  • This bluesy Southern rocker features the pedal steel of Robert Randolph. Bassist Tai Anderson told Christian Music Today how Third Day hooked up with the guitar virtuoso: "I've been a big fan of Robert Randolph since I first saw him play at Gospel Music Week four or five years ago. I wrote the riff for 'Otherside' and immediately thought it sounded like something that Robert could absolutely nail. Now that we're under the same management, it was a breeze to work it out. Robert took the song and blew it up!"
