Inspired by Psalm 103, verse 12 — “As far as the east is from the west, so far hath he removed our transgressions from us.” — “East to West” will uplift and comfort, continuing the group’s decades-long ministry and reminding listeners that God’s love and grace are all encompassing.
“We feel that we’ve chosen strong material from amazing writers that convey the great message of salvation, grace, joy, hope, forgiveness, and the promises of God,” says Jason Griggs.
Through blending musical styles, Endless Highway reflects the journey of the Southern Gospel genre and themselves by highlighting influences of the three generations that make up the group. From songs like the traditional “It’s a Highway to Heaven“ featuring the lead singing of Jason Griggs from the family’s second generation, to the modern “Out of the Deep“ featuring his daughter Allison, Endless Highway presents a dynamic mix of progressive and traditional music.
The album’s first single, “It’s His Story,” features the lead singing of Jay Griggs, Allison’s brother, who represents a new generation of strong Gospel lead vocalists. This song is a proclamation of faith, a message carried throughout this powerful release.
