Something a little bit different. Upbeat. A little bit country, a little bit Americana with a strong gospel message. Still at home in the bluegrass world. One of Jesus Christ's best known quotes comes from John 8:32, "You will know the truth and the truth will set you free." I wrote this song in May 2018 while thinking about what those words mean in my daily life and the sacrifice Christ had to make to set us free from our debt of sin. I first performed it on the Sunday before Memorial Day at my church with our Praise and Worship band. When I pitched it to Lynn one evening at our JMB band rehearsal she immediately picked up her banjo and joined in and said she wanted to include it on our gospel project. It's been part of our live set in almost every venue we have performed since June with great response.
Stephen Briggs provides the lead vocal,acoustic guitar and mandolin. Lynn Goldsmith steps in with some solid banjo and Tom Murray offers a great dobro solo. Harmony vocals from Tom Murray and Mike Orr (Upright Bass).
