Working While Praising Your Name
The first radio single from Dutybound Servant will be a tune called "Working While Praising Your Name." It's a true story I wrote last summer while working (breaking my back) in the factory. I felt like I was at the end of my rope, unable to go on with all the physical labor. But then, one of my co-workers kept on shouting out "Hallelujah!" I got to know him, and as it turns out he is the deacon of his church. Over time it got to be a running joke at the plant to scream out "Hallelujah" during random points during the shift. But I really appreciated the fact I wasn't alone in my belief in Jesus Christ. Just when I thought I might quit my job, I learned the lesson to "be content" in all circumstances. I wrote the song in my head while handling thousands of trailer hitches, and I heard it with perfect clarity for months before finally getting it on paper and finally on a recording. I'm really looking forward to having you hear it starting in June 2017! The full album will be out sometime shortly after the single.
