Song from Illinois-based band drops at Christian AC outlets
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (January 18, 2022) – “To The Ones,” a new single from Illinois-based band Bringing Home, is headed to Christian AC-formatted radio outlets today. The single is available to stream at all digital outlets.
The song, co-written by founding band members Amber and Jared Russell, is “possibly one of the most important songs we have written. It is a cry from the Father’s heart declaring to us, ‘I see You,’” they say.
“We, as humans, have all faced hardships at different times in our lives and we’re all in need of saving,” explain the Russells. “When no one else understands and life is more than we can bear, our prayer is that God will remind you that He has never left your side. He came in pursuit of you. He can break the chains that keep us shackled and restore hope to those who have none.”
The Russells, who live in the small southern Illinois town of Norris City, formed Bringing Home in 2012.
The band’s name, explains Amber Russell, is derived from Peter’s words in 1 Peter.
“Our eternal home is waiting for us and we are just passing through this world,” she says. “Heaven is a place where we will never know pain again, the loss of a loved one, or the hurt of a broken heart. It is a place that will forever contain hope and peace, qualities that, unfortunately, our world lacks. There is chaos on every corner and we weren’t meant to live like this.”
“This world is in desperate need of a Savior and a hope and that’s what Bringing Home is all about,” says Jared Russell, the band’s lead singer. “The music of Bringing Home speaks of God’s forgiveness and His willingness to uplift you above all of your struggles.
“God can take what we have written and make it go so much further than we could ever take it,” he adds. “It is only through Him that we are able to do this.”
