This time, it’s a hopeful song of inspiration and faith written by Crandall Creek founders Jerry Andrews and Kathy Wigman Lesnock, Oh Glory Be. It tells of a rain of biblical proportions, and trusting that the Lord will always make things right.
Kathy recalls the day the song took shape.
“We were sitting around the table after a meal when Jerry said, ‘What will we write about today?’ I replied, ‘It’s really a nice day out today. We could write about that.’ And Jerry responded with, ‘What about rain?’’ And so we ended up writing a barn burner about rain.”
After a brief introduction with a 19th century theme, Wyatt Kidd kicks things off on fiddle, before newest member Abby Latocha, starts in on the song. It’s a perfect encapsulation of the band’s sound, a bright, cheery style that has won them great acclaim in short order.
Completing the group are Dustin Terpenning on banjo, Trish Imbrogno on bass, and Roger Hoard, providing guest lead guitar.
