Do you ever just need a good song to sing along to at the top of your lungs? Well, look no further because “Gospel Song” by Rhett Walker is meant for exactly that.

When setting out to write “Gospel Song,” Rhett Walker had two goals:

  1. Keep it simple
  2. Remind people that there is joy to be found

After the wild few years that we have all had, these two ideas were important to Rhett and he wanted to write a song that reflected and reminded people of the joy that they might have been missing.

This joy that “Gospel Song” reminds us of isn’t material or of this world, but the kind that can only be found in Jesus. Secure, lasting, one-of-a-kind joy.

Rhett explains that “no matter how long you’ve been a believer…we all need that reminder, daily.”

If you need this reminder today, take Rhett Walker’s advice and “roll your windows down, turn up your radio as loud as you can to your favorite station (*hint*hint* BRIGHT-FM), and listen to a gospel song.”
