Debuts exclusively on Facebook in honor of granddad
Seven-time Grammy Award-winner TobyMac has released a brand-new single, "Promised Land." Written by TobyMac and Adam Agee, the track is the follow-up to his No. 1 hit "Help Is On The Way (Maybe Midnight)," and is available across all DSPs and impacting Christian radio.
"I think if we're honest, each of us have wondered, ‘Where is the promised land?’ " TobyMac said. "... ‘Where's the blessing for me and my family that I thought would come my way on this earth when I chose to follow the King of Kings?’ "
In support of the single, the multi-Platinum artist premiered the music video on Facebook in honor of his granddad, a miner in West Virginia, where TobyMac's own father grew up in a mining camp.
"It was a hard life," TobyMac said. "A life where I imagine they must have really wondered, ‘Where in the world is my promised land?’ "
Ultimately, he said of the song, "The lyics land where I want my life to land: That the promised land is no land at all, but a relationship with the king that loves us deeply. It turns from ‘Where's my promised land?’ to ‘You’re my promised land.’ Maybe the promised land we're looking for is no place at all, but a person named Jesus."
This is the second single TobyMac has released this year, following the breakout hit “Help Is On the Way (Maybe Midnight),” which went No. 1 on five charts, including the Billboard Christian Audience chart, and held on to No. 1 at Hot AC for 13
