Behind the Song: “Rise Up”


Ben Shive wrote and recorded this one for his first record several years ago, and I told him immediately that I wanted to record it for Resurrection Letters: Vol. I.

It’s not only about our resurrection on the last day, but God’s promise to return and make all things right again. It’s such an honor to cover a song by one of the finest songwriters I’ve ever known.

You can pick up Resurrection Letters: Volume I in the Rabbit Room Store and listen to “Rise Up” here:
