Coming soon to a couch near you! We’ve been booking some intimate home shows in the Portland area this summer and are looking for some more homes to invade. So if you would like to host an Acoustic Living Room Concert please let us know!
Here are some quick links to various retailers where you can purchase either a downloadable MP3 copy of this album or in some cases a physical CD with lyric booklet.
If Brandon Heath and Gary Sinise joined forces to create a military tribute song—this would be it. This song is an encouragement and thank you to all of our armed services that we are grateful for their service.
This is a tribute song I wrote for our troops who serve and sacrifice so that we can enjoy the freedoms of this country. Once again the amazing Nick Garrett-Powell recorded and produced this track as well as playing bass, electric guitar and singing harmonies. After more than 11 years I was able to join forces with the fantastic Jim Sitter on drums! Jim helped produce and play on many of my earlier recordings, the last being “Don’t Look Back”, and I was excited to be able to work with him again on this song.
We are planning on releasing an entire CD filled with similar tribute music, but this song will be featured early on my next full-length CD, “White.” This song is dedicated to my grandfather, Wayne Ray, who was with the 139th in WWII and my cousin, John Ray, who recently served in the Navy. Thank you to all of our armed services personnel! “I know it’s not much, but this is all I have to say… THANK YOU!”
I hope these words might reach you today
Wherever you are before it’s too late to say
For I am grateful; words alone cannot convey
The depth of my gratitude to a stranger miles away
I know it’s not much compared with what you’ve done
I wish I had more to offer than just this song
But my words are few…
Thank you For all that you have given
Paid the ultimate price
The life you set aside for mine
I can’t begin to pretend to know what it’s like
Not having walked in your shoes or stood a sentry line
To your deepest longing for your loved ones out of sight
Know that you’re not alone, you’re in our prayers tonight
Though it might not seem enough
For those who’ve been left behind I know
My prayers are lifted up
God comfort them and heal their broken hearts, oh-oh
Grant them peace in time
I know it’s not much
But this is all I have to say
