“Thinking ‘Bout Home” was originally released on Wherever I Am, The Talleys first ever recording on Canaan Records in 1984 which was produced by Gospel Music legend Bill Gaither. It was the first feature song recorded by Debra Talley and led to her winning the first of 11 solo Singing News Fan Awards, including Favorite Alto, Queen of Gospel Music, and Favorite Female Vocalist. It has become her all time signature song and is still her most requested song 37 years later. It has been featured on 3 different Gaither Homecoming videos and is regarded as an all time classic.
Debra Talley says, “‘Thinkin ‘Bout Home’ is one of those rare songs that comes along usually once in an artist’s career and becomes their signature song. The old man’s story in the song touches us and helps us realize that this Earth is not our home. Heaven is waiting for the believer. ‘Thinking ‘Bout Home’ is very relatable and the listener is able to hear the lyric while feeling their own story.”
