The digital copy of the new album HOLE IN THE SKY (HITS) is now available for pre-order on iTunes! The pre-order period will last until April 23, and during this time, the digital copy is specially priced at $3.99. The first single from HITS is “Mama’s Faith”, and it will be available immediately during the pre-sale period.
“Mama’s Faith” (© 2015, ASCAP, written by Wright, Swaff, and Joshua Harrison) is being released as a song to honor moms during Mother’s Day season. The song is about my mother, and the following lyrics sum up much of what she has taught me by her example:
God is great, God is good
Live your life the way that He would
Give and share
Laugh and sing
You’ll see the joy life can bring
And guess what? After much begging, Mom agreed to sing on “Mama’s Faith”! Many of you already know that Mom had a singing career around the time she finished college. One of the highlights of it was when a TV station based in Charlotte, North Carolina had open auditions for someone to headline a summer television show. People came from everywhere, stood in line, auditioned, and Mom was selected. The name of the group was Kitty Wright and the Southern Playboys, and they sang popular songs from the day.
It is such an honor to have this special recording that features my super-talented mom, Kitty Wright. I hope you enjoy it!
The official release date for HITS will be April 24, and the digital copy will be available everywhere starting that day for $8.99. The physical CD will also be available on April 24 for $10 (these sold out within three days of the pre-release party! Thank those of you who made this happen!)
