One of the strongest female vocalists in the country genre right now, Rachel Wammack just released a beautiful prayer in music form titled “When I Say Amen”. During this pandemic, one thing that has helped so many is turning to the quiet moments where they can reflect on the good in their lives or the good that can be seen happening around the world.
“At the end of a prayer, running out on the edge, on fire like a sunset / I lift my hands to first love, shooting stars, burning candles in the dark / every step, every breath that’s when I say ‘Amen'”
Wammack takes you on a motivating yet peaceful journey during her new song written with Matt Maher and Sam Ellis. She took to Instagram live yesterday to talk about the need to release this song at this time. She spoke about the tornadoes that ripped through Nashville in March and how she found herself waiting for the storm to pass and praying. “I feel like, as I was listening to “When I Say Amen” in the car, I went back to that moment in the tornado and then to quarantine, which sometimes feels like that moment all over again, really scary and I feel like every day I have leaned on prayer, more than anything”.
Wammack’s powerful vocals over a shimmering production allow the listener to zero in on something so important during a time of crisis, faith that everything will get better. For more from the songstress check out our Swag Session from late 2019 below.
