I found "My Church"

I found my new favorite song. So can I get a hallelujah? Can I get an amen?

For me, Maren Morris' "My Church" is one of those special songs you only find so many of in a lifetime. It may not be perfect, it may not be the greatest song in the world, but when you hear it, you'd swear it was written for -- or about you.

Why this song? It tells the story of a girl driving with the windows down and country music on the radio. That alone could describe me on any day of the week. But then she goes into how that feeling is "my church." And I just get it.

"When this wonderful world gets heavy, and I need to find my escape,
I just keep the wheels rolling, radio scrolling
Until my sins wash away." 

Music has always been the biggest part of my life. (Yes, even more than writing.) I grew up on country classics, I've attended concerts my entire life, and I've never felt a better high than the one I get when I'm screaming my lungs out to a song that "gets me." And Maren Morris' tune "gets me" in every single way.
