Some songs incubate for years and slowly creep into the consciousness of songwriters. This one felt like a whack on the side of the head!
Nearing the end of 2015, heading into a presidential election year, the 4 of us sat around one Friday discussing the political and moral climate in which we find ourselves. When we got around to throwing out potential song ideas, someone said, “What do you think about One Nation Over God”? It was one of those rare moments when there was no hesitation for any of us. That’s the song we wanted to write!
It seems to us that there are a lot of other people in this country who have a growing sense of loss, sadness, and even outrage that the fundamental ideals upon which this country was founded and became a great nation have been slowly eroded, and now are even being brazenly cast aside.
We want to stand with Americans who believe we are headed down the wrong path.
This song is our way of letting our voice be heard, but also offered in the hope of stirring the voices of so many in this country who want to speak up and stand up for the ideals and values that have characterized America for two and a half centuries.
