“When I was about 12 or 13, my friend’s dad played the Rascal Flatts’ album, Prayin’ for Daylight, in his truck for the first time. To this day, I can sing every word from that album and most of their albums,” Wells shares. “I can’t believe we have a song together. Honestly, it doesn’t feel like any ole song; this feels special.”

The “special” track appears on Wells’ latest critically-acclaimed studio album, Citizen of Heaven, and features the award-winning country trio’s Gary LeVox, Jay DeMarcus, and Joe Don Rooney. Wells first met the members of the iconic vocal group when he had the opportunity to sing with them live at @Chris Tomlin’s annual “Good Friday Nashville” event several years ago.
The Flatts—known for hits like “God Bless The Broken Road,” “What Hurts The Most” and “I Like The Sound of That”—are no strangers to Christian music. Guitarist/keyboardist Jay DeMarcus, who got his start in music as one-half of Christian duo East to West, is the founder and CEO of Christian label, Red Street Records (home to artists like @Cade Thompson and @Avalon), and has consistently produced albums throughout his career for a long list of both contemporary Christian and Southern Gospel acts. Meanwhile, lead singer Gary LeVox recently launched his first solo Christian project, One on One, which actually features a selection co-written by Wells, “While I Wait,” and four additional faith-based tracks.
