Song Notes: The collection kicks off with “Butterfly”, a solemn, yet uplifting version written for the film Because of Winn Dixie and performed solo by Dave. It’s followed by a 2004 version of “Cry Freedom” featuring a powerful performance from LeRoi Moore. Three rousing songs captured on the band’s 2009 summer tour – “Out Of My Hands”, “Lying In The Hands Of God” and “Dive In” are also included.
Thanks: We’d like to extend an enormous thanks to Adam Larson with Adam+Company who generously donated the artwork for the shirt and EP as well as the AntsMarching.orgstaff for helping us select the versions of the tracks. Thanks to Musictoday for providing the download service for the cause.
