Although a version of the LP’s title cut has been circulating for more than a year, Carnes said he’s known for quite some time that “Firm Foundation (He Won’t)” was always meant to provide this collection’s namesake.
“This is one of my favorite songs I’ve ever been a part of writing, and I really believe in it,” Carnes said. “I’ve seen it spark a room while I’m leading like no other song I’ve been a part of."
About the songs on this upcoming album, Carnes added, "These songs celebrate the God who never ever fails. They were written out of encounters with Jesus, and they carry his certain hope in uncertain times. When everything around me is shaken, I've never been more glad that I put my faith in Jesus."
"Firm Foundation (He Won't)" is the follow-up song to his first-ever No. 1 radio single, "Ain't Nobody," which spent four weeks on the top of the Mediabase Christian Audience chart. Carnes was also recently nominated for "Breakout Single of the Year" at this year's K-LOVE Fan Awards where he performed his hit song with country artist Russell Dickerson. It will have a special encore presentation on TBN tonight and is available on the TBN app.
Last summer, Carnes held a two-night live worship event at his church home base, The Belonging Co., in Nashville. The special event produced his first-ever live album, “God Is Good!,” which was released last year, as well as the upcoming “Firm Foundation.”
Carnes spoke with K-LOVE On Demand about this special recording and writing process that resulted in two very unique projects on the show, "Empty Stage with Andrew Greer."
Continuing on his first headlining tour with worship leader Benjamin William Hastings, Carnes will head out for the second run next month. The "Blessing Tour," with his wife Kari Jobe, will pick up again this fall for the Europe and U.K. dates. Click here to see all of his upcoming tour dates.
