The Down East Boys' latest single "Beat Up Bible" stirs emotion about family tradition and the importance of relying on God's word.
The quartet creates a rich, heartfelt sound in their rendition of the popular Little Big Town song. Released by Sonlite Records, "Beat Up Bible" paints the picture of a "worn out and torn up" book used by generations to teach the value of prayer and unwavering trust in God.
"I can hear her saying,
Baby, when you're praying
Give Him all your worries, He'll give you all you need
When you're crying and you're hurting
And nothing else is working
All you've got to do is just believe
In this beat up Bible"
"This song takes me back to my grandparents and the Christian heritage they showed to me," says lead singer Ricky Carden. "Their Bibles are worn and tattered from the many hours spent studying the word. We need more beat up Bibles in our homes."
"Beat Up Bible" is the first single from the Down East Boys' upcoming album, One Day In The Past, to be released in August on Sonlite Records.
