Chart-topping country duo Dan + Shay have unveiled the new single and video for “When I Pray For You,” from “THE SHACK: MUSIC FROM AND INSPIRED BY THE ORIGINAL MOTION PICTURE.”
“‘When I Pray for You’ is one of the most special songs we’ve ever written,” said Dan Smyers of Dan + Shay. “We sat down with our friends Jon Nite and Justin Ebach and got to talking about Shay’s son-to-be. With some good stories (and even a few manly tears), the song wrote itself. It was an emotional day, one of those days that make us remember how blessed we are to be a part of the Nashville songwriting community.”
“When I Pray For You” is the third instant grat track available with pre-order of “THE SHACK: MUSIC FROM AND INSPIRED BY THE ORIGINAL MOTION PICTURE,” following “Keep Your Eyes On Me” by Tim McGraw and Faith Hill, and “Stars (The Shack Version)” by Skillet.
“When I Pray For You” impacts country radio outlets later this month. Dan + Shay recently reached #1 on both the Mediabase and Billboard Country charts with their song “From the Ground Up.”
“THE SHACK: MUSIC FROM AND INSPIRED BY THE ORIGINAL MOTION PICTURE” also features previously unreleased music from some of the biggest names in pop, country and Christian music including Kelly Clarkson & Aloe Blacc, Lady Antebellum, Dierks Bentley, for KING & COUNTRY, Brett Eldredge, and NEEDTOBREATHE (Feat. Lauren Daigle). Two more instant grat tracks will be available leading up to the album’s release: Hillsong UNITED’s “Heaven Knows” and Lecrae’s “River of Jordan (Feat. Breyan Isaac).”
“THE SHACK,” based on The New York Times best-selling novel, will be released in- theatres nationwide on Friday, March 3rd from Lionsgate’s Summit Entertainment Label and stars Sam Worthington and Academy-Award winner Octavia Spencer with Grammy Award winner Tim McGraw.
