It's time for the Junkyard! I'm excited to write more about this song from my latest album, Like The Sun!
I wrote this with my producer Neilson Hubbard and engineer Joshua Britt. Not only are they gifted musically, they also produce music videos and are photographers for some of America's biggest music acts, including Jason Isbell and John Prine.
Junkyard God is about finding God, love, and beauty in the unexpected parts of life.
I've found the most love in my life, not in the pretty and stereotypical moments, but in the messier stuff. I found it in the hard climbs and difficult conversations. I found God in people from all walks of life. The more I learned about the dust and broken glass of my own life, the more I saw the good in the world around me.
Some people wrap their stories in beautiful bows. I wrap mine in a big, rusty chain. I hope you like it.
