Southern gospel; Skyland Records — STREAM / BUY EP Gospel group Endless Highway is sharing an inspiring message that spans genres with their new album Countless, now available from Skyland Records. Highlighting a country sound, this album allows Vanessa and Jason Griggs and their children Jay and Allison to act as storytellers, painting a picture of the great and the tough moments of life all the while encouraging steadfast faith. "As our followers know, we love variety and diversity in styles of music. This project has a slight country sound and adds another dimension to our catalog of music,” says Jason Griggs. “Half of the project is made up of songs that tell life stories, while the remaining songs declare encouragement, faith, God’s love, and faithfulness, and a desire to be more Christlike. We believe listeners will deeply connect with the stories and the Gospel messages in these songs.” Countless begins with the upbeat, “Keep Looking Up,” a song of encouragement that reminds us to tune out doubt, have faith and take risks. It’s followed by “Somebody’s World Changed Today,” a slower song that tells of life’s stories, from the joy of a new baby to the loss of a loved one at the grave. People will always have some dark days, and sensitivity to their situations can give them a peace that everything will be settled through the Lord and happy days will come again.
The first single and title track describes feeling down and as if life doesn’t truly make a difference on Earth. But when those moments set in, you can remember God won’t ever forget about you. Endless Highway sings, “You say I'm always on your mind / Oh, no there'll never be a time / When you'll forget about me / That's how much you care about me / More than the tiny grains of sand / Setting on the shores of the sea / The thoughts you're thinking about me / Are countless.”
Other tracks include “26 Cents,” a story of a young woman leaving home and how she can always remember her mother’s love and “Til They Came Home,” describing the collective concern of families who are separated by war from those they love.
As a collection, Countless maintains the gospel music tenets of trust, hope, and faith in the Lord, while expanding Endless Highway’s musical horizons with a country sound. With relatable stories of life’s trials, Countless will inspire and encourage.
