Why am I blogging about a song? 

Well, I’ve decided to spotlight folk music now and again for two reasons.

1. I LOVE folk music. It’s pretty much my favorite genre outside of worship music. And there are some really awesome artists and songs out there…so this is me sharin’ the love :]

2. Folk and bluegrass music really tie into my stories. It’s a common thread in most everything I write. And while it’s ever evolving, this song is one that is currently at the top of my writing mix.

The song for this spotlight is the well-loved hymn, “His Eye is on the Sparrow” by Audrey Assad. It’s not as folksy as some of the other songs I’ve spotlighted, but one can never go wrong with this great classic and Audrey puts a fresh, jazzy twist on it. I learned about this song from one of the hosts of the Christian Fiction book club. Since we’re talking about Be Still My Soul this month, she shared this song as it reminded her about the book 🙂 So without further adieu, I hope you enjoy!
