A classic country tune worked up in a beautiful, refined, and sophisticated arrangement, Craig Hella Johnson’s elegant writing style features a soloist (or more!) singing the beautiful and inspiring text with the chorus serving up lush harmonies beneath. The conclusion uses a clever layering of chorus, soloists, female trio and recorder that artfully depicts the depth of the text. Although almost entirely a cappella, this piece could serve as a great ballad in a spring show.
