Confessions of a Worship Leader asks the question.
By the way, his assertion that…
a lot of what gets used in church comes from songwriters with the “Nashville Songwriting Formula” that no one knows about but those who are privy to it’s use. They go into the studio on Monday morning and bang out a song by mid-afternoon and a few months of production later, it’s in a church near you.
…well, that just doesn’t happen. Speaking from my desk here in Nashville, any song that got “banged out” like that wouldn’t be one you’ll be singing. There are just too many songs that people have prayed and sweat over for that to be the case.
