Having my faith really kept me anchored.
Talking with American Songwriter he opens up more about what his faith means to him and how it has influenced his writing processes, “You can lose yourself so quickly…having my faith really kept me anchored in the sense of, if I was ever drifting toward one thing or another that wasn’t truly me, or what I stood for, I was able to check myself.”
