Wayne Watson has had a trying year. In sight of writing a follow-up to his greatly admired project The Way Home, a freak accident left him broken, sick, and fatigued. For months he could hardly muster the energy for daily living, let alone a creative endeavor. Through this time Watson began to consider the possibility of his musical career coming to an end. But then some heaven-sent encouragement helped him believe again that God was indeed using him. His song "For Such a Time as This" was used on an episode of TV's Touched by an Angel, and he was invited to perform a private worship service for the survivors of the Columbine High School shooting. Through these events, and a little inspiration gleaned at a James Taylor concert, Watson began to write again. In 10 weeks he penned the 11 songs that make up this self-titled release, his 16th album. Reflecting on his life events over the past year, Watson has turned his pain, emotions, and questions into songs that his listeners can identify with. And breaking from his usual style, he has written these songs with both piano and guitar, making this project more lush and textured than his previous material.
