Because of that, it makes it so much more special when music you've written and created in his name touches people and may have helped lead them to know him. The guys and I want to thank Gospel radio, the folks who have requested our music and most importantly, our Lord and Savior for blessing us and our music more than we ever deserve." – Steve Gulley
