Country music veteran Wade Hayes returns today with his brand new album Who Saved Who. Hayes produced the album with Dave McAfee and Lonnie Wilson (George Strait's drummer). The Oklahoma native has been cancer free now for nearly seven years and in January will celebrate his first anniversary with his wife, Lea. One of the highlights of this new album is Hayes' cover of Third Day's title track of their 2008 album "Revelation."
The song "Revelation" boldly addresses the doubt and uncertainty many believers encounter during their walk when wondering what direction to go in next:
Give me a revelation / Show me what to do / 'Cause I've been trying to find my way / I haven't got a clue / Tell me should I stay here / Or do I need to move Give me a revelation / I've got nothing without you"
Hayes tells Billboard why he came to record this tune. "I listen to gospel a lot on the radio. This song came on and it blew me away," he says. "I loved it. It's a great melody and not your typical sounding gospel song or gospel message. I knew I wanted to record it when I heard it for the very first time. I didn't do the song justice. The Third Day guys that recorded it, they killed it, but we tried to do a country version with steel guitar all over it."
