Here Goes

Here Goes is a song that I wrote with my longtime friend Brandon Heath.  It’s really just a simple pop song in a lot of ways, sort of the only one of its type on the new record.  And although I don’t think we realized it at the time, it’s really the culmination of dozens of conversations that Brandon and I have had over coffee or lunch or on some random tour bus throughout the years that we’ve known one another.  You see, I think that in a way, people like Brandon and I are sort of “accidental” musicians – not the types that would have imagined ourselves living our lives on stage, standing in any sort of “spot light.”  Truthfully, that sounds more noble than it really is…the reality of our not envisioning that scenario had more to do with our own personal fears and insecurities than humility.  My conversations with Brandon very often leaned in the direction of that conflict between what we felt we were being called toward and the overwhelming insecurities that made us so uncomfortable with that calling.  And the truth is, I think more often than Brandon or I would ever care to admit we tended to err on the side of fear rather than faith in the face of those difficult moments.  But the thing that I love most about this song is that it is a celebration of the fact that God’s goodness and faithfulness won out over our deep-seeded apprehensions and insecurities.  This song is about the moments we all face every single day that require us to either trust in a God who is bigger than we are or turn and run.

    What a beautiful description to a beautiful song. I love the truth that is tied along with it. Even though I can't relate to Brandon and you on an artist level, I can relate to you all on the insecurities that I face as a young adult. Its been along road for me, but I feel as though I'm finally trusting fully on God's promise to me. Through your music as well as Brandon's, I can truly say it has gotten me through some hard times. Thank you so much for going towards your calling and in return of all your struggles you should know that you are impacting so many people's lives. Much love!

    I just Here Goes last night, and I've been working on my daughter's scrapbook as she gets ready to graduate from high school and move on to college. She has that Here Goes mentality -- relying on God and not knowing what the future holds for her. I'll be downloading the song today to add to her slideshow! I love your music!

    This is a fantastic source not only for developers, but for individuals who have had their website developed and want to create minimal changes without having to pay for help.I would ever proper want to confess we maintained to err on the part of worry rather than trust in the experience of those challenging minutes.
