Through the journey of life we often collect things-something from a special location, or occasion; it may be a photo from a special event or person in our lives. No matter the occasion, each is something worth saving. The McKameys assuredly have had this same experience. Out of their more than fifty years of recording, many of their twenty-plus number one songs have come about this way.
Something Worth Saving is filled with songs that are just that. The McKameys have a proven recipe for lyrically strong, Biblically backed songs delivered with passion and feeling that can only come from living what they are singing. In the title song Something Worth Saving, there are reminders that "though I feel I'll never be worthy, my God is real and so is His mercy. He must have seen something worth saving when He saved me."

Q: With so many records under your belt, it is tough to choose your song list when you are called to do a concert? So, how do you decide which songs to sing?
