more The beginning of this song is lively and full of energy! That has me anticipating what's around the corner. I have to say I wasn't disappointed. The skipping drums and melodious guitars took me right to the lyrics which are just a pure delight to the ears. The vocals are warm and inviting - the positive tone carries the theme of "seeing a fire" right to the chorus. This song just sails along smoothly, making it fun to listen to. If you're a musician you want to join the band, if you're anyone else you want to get up and clap and sway to the music. Great flow!
The piano, and organ are adding soul to this song as it moves along - just right. The words are simple, but cut to the heart of what gospel music is to so many - uplifting and entertaining. This song is both. ... The songs a little long, but that being said, it's the kind of song that you would like to hear driving down the road in the sun or even on a rainy day. This song is good country music at it's best. When the song gets soft just before it breaks to the end is the frosting on the cake! A great arrangement makes this song much better than it would have been... hat's off to whoever arranged this gem.
Thanks for sharing such a wonderful gospel song, it touched my heart and I'm sure it will touch many more as it fills the airwaves... In Christ/Michael D'Aigle

more O yeah, a good classic country sound greets me as I start the song... that's always nice! The steel guitar rolls the song straight to the lead vocals. Now that's as good as it gets. The violins/strings are the added touch to the intro. I love it!
The piano/drums and bass are just right. The words take center stage and are right where they should be - hat's off to the producer... The words talk about hard times, but instead of "crying in your beer suds" - this song points the weary soul to Jesus. This gospel message is pure and strong - nothing shy about these lyrics. The words are like a healing balm to any hurting person looking for a way out of there pain and suffering. This is good country gospel to the bone. You don't have to like country music to appreciate the words - they are beautiful and the right medicine for broken people.
Finally, let me say that the easy flowing rhythm, along with Kenny's warm and strong vocals make this song a pure delight to listen to from beginning to end. And, that's coming from someone who doesn't listen to much country music. I love this song, and it's got everything. I think the steel guitar could back off just a tad, but that's very minor. I would have loved to put a little harmonica in this song...
Thanks for sharing such a wonderful gospel song with everyone! You blessed me to no end.

There is something about that heavy bottom that makes you want to move in your seat no matter what you're doing at the time. Take that beat and add some meaningful lyrics and an equally meaningful singing performance and you've got something special. Add to that the vulnerability. He pouring his heart out in this song. I'm honored.
