Slow Down

Album: Revelation (2008)

Songfacts®:

  • Third Day fan Chris Daughtry lent his voice to this rock anthem. Bassist Tai Anderson told Christian Music Today how Third Day hooked up with the American Idol finalist: "We all met Daughtry last year at the Grammy Awards and he talked about listening to Third Day when he first got started in music. Mac and Chris have since remained close friends, so he was a natural to have on the record, especially since the song he sang ['Slow Down'] speaks to friends trying to be there for each other. Our schedules didn't allow us to be there when Chris recorded, but we did get it captured on video!"
