So, I promised some stories behind the songs on my new upcoming CD Stars, Guitars & Megaphone Dreams. And it’s time to get the stories started so here we go.

The first track on the new record is one of my personal favorites. It’s a song called Make It Loud. On my previous CD Rock-N-Happy Heart there was a song called Shout! that has become a crowd favorite for sure. I loved how people connected to the message of that song of getting loud and being unashamed of their love for Jesus so I wanted to write another song along that theme. That’s how Make It Loud got its feet off the ground. In thinking about what I wanted this CD to be I had thought about megaphones and how they really amplify a voice. I liked the idea of what that communicated and knew I wanted to include megaphones in this record. Which I did not only in the title but in the opening line of Make It Loud where it says:

“I got my megaphone, I want to make it loud, I need to shout this message till the word gets out.”

The chorus goes on to say: “I won’t stop, I will sing, Jesus is my everything. Nothing could ever change my mind, oh”.

In the times and culture we live in I think it’s important for us all to take a renewed look at our commitment to following Jesus and choose to not give up but rather to let our life be like an amplified sound that shouts the greatness of our God! I think it’s a pretty fun song. I’ve already performed it live a handful of times over the past couple months and I can’t wait for you to hear it very, very soon.
