  • certain circumstances
  • 00:02:41.000 --> 00:02:44.060

  • [laughter]

  • That's a phenomenon,

  • and it just happened overnight pretty much, right?
  • 00:08:58.170 --> 00:09:01.290
  • Aaron: Well, yeah, I mean, we--
  • 00:09:02.000 --> 00:09:03.260
  • we actually grew up together--
  • 00:09:03.270 --> 00:09:07.020
  • not actually together, but we grew up knowing each other,
  • 00:09:07.030 --> 00:09:09.110
  • went to different church camps together,
  • 00:09:09.120 --> 00:09:12.020
  • and end up marrying two girls that were friends.
  • 00:09:12.030 --> 00:09:15.090
  • And long story short, we ended up...
  • 00:09:15.100 --> 00:09:19.180
  • - Hanging out and stuff. - Hanging out,
  • 00:09:19.190 --> 00:09:21.060
  • becoming good and close friends, you know.
  • 00:09:21.070 --> 00:09:23.190
  • And then we started working for the same contractor,
  • 00:09:23.200 --> 00:09:28.070
  • subbing under this contractor.
  • 00:09:28.080 --> 00:09:30.060
  • And we knew each other could sing a little bit,
  • 00:09:30.070 --> 00:09:33.110
  • and so every time we would work together,
  • 00:09:33.120 --> 00:09:36.250
  • we'd crank up a tune.
  • 00:09:36.260 --> 00:09:38.210
  • - [chuckles] - And in the house,
  • 00:09:38.220 --> 00:09:40.000
  • in the garage... - Oh, yeah.
  • 00:09:40.010 --> 00:09:41.120
  • - Anywhere that nobody would yell at us.
  • 00:09:41.130 --> 00:09:43.070
  • [laughter]
  • 00:09:43.080 --> 00:09:45.060
  • Bill: Now, did you have an actual camera,
  • 00:09:45.070 --> 00:09:46.250
  • or did you do this with a...
  • 00:09:46.260 --> 00:09:48.080
  • Josh: Everything has been
  • 00:09:48.090 --> 00:09:50.050
  • a cell phone. Aaron: Yeah.
  • 00:09:50.060 --> 00:09:51.200
  • Josh: Everything that you see from us is a cell phone,
  • 00:09:51.210 --> 00:09:53.210
  • and it's propped up.
  • 00:09:53.220 --> 00:09:55.020
  • Usually, it's first take.
  • 00:09:55.030 --> 00:09:56.220
  • That's why it sounds so bad.
  • 00:09:56.230 --> 00:09:58.120
  • [laughter]
  • 00:09:58.130 --> 00:09:59.230
  • - Well, this is gonna be a fun, fun day,
  • 00:09:59.240 --> 00:10:01.240
  • and we'll get started with a great old gospel song,
  • 00:10:01.250 --> 00:10:04.170
  • "Life Is Like a Mountain Railway."
  • 00:10:04.180 --> 00:10:07.120
  • [upbeat music]
  • 00:10:07.130 --> 00:10:10.270
  • both: Life is like
  • 00:10:10.280 --> 00:10:13.020
  • a mountain railway
  • 00:10:13.030 --> 00:10:15.150
  • with an engineer
  • 00:10:15.160 --> 00:10:17.290
  • that's brave.
  • 00:10:18.000 --> 00:10:20.000
  • We must make
  • 00:10:20.010 --> 00:10:21.260
  • this run successful
  • 00:10:21.270 --> 00:10:24.140
  • from the cradle
  • 00:10:24.150 --> 00:10:26.200
  • to the grave.
  • 00:10:26.210 --> 00:10:28.250
  • We'll heed the curves
  • 00:10:28.260 --> 00:10:31.000
  • and watch the tunnels.
  • 00:10:31.010 --> 00:10:33.090
  • Never falter,
  • 00:10:33.100 --> 00:10:35.200
  • never fail.
  • 00:10:35.210 --> 00:10:37.220
  • Keep your hands
  • 00:10:37.230 --> 00:10:39.270
  • upon the throttle
  • 00:10:39.280 --> 00:10:42.120
  • and your eyes
  • 00:10:42.130 --> 00:10:44.100
  • upon the rail.
  • 00:10:44.110 --> 00:10:46.180
  • Oh, blessed Savior,
  • 00:10:46.190 --> 00:10:48.280
  • Thou will guide us
  • 00:10:48.290 --> 00:10:51.060
  • till we reach
  • 00:10:51.070 --> 00:10:53.080
  • that blissful shore
  • 00:10:53.090 --> 00:10:55.240
  • where the angels
  • 00:10:55.250 --> 00:10:58.000
  • wait to join us
  • 00:10:58.010 --> 00:11:00.080
  • in God's grace
  • 00:11:00.090 --> 00:11:02.090
  • forevermore.
  • 00:11:02.100 --> 00:11:05.110
  • - Yeah.
  • 00:11:05.120 --> 00:11:06.260
  • 00:11:06.270 --> 00:11:11.270
  • - As you roll
  • 00:11:11.280 --> 00:11:13.200
  • across the trestle
  • 00:11:13.210 --> 00:11:15.260
  • spanning Jordan's swelling tide,
  • 00:11:15.270 --> 00:11:20.120
  • you will reach
  • 00:11:20.130 --> 00:11:22.110
  • the Union Depot
  • 00:11:22.120 --> 00:11:24.260
  • into which
  • 00:11:24.270 --> 00:11:26.270
  • your train will ride.
  • 00:11:26.280 --> 00:11:29.110
  • There you'll meet
  • 00:11:29.120 --> 00:11:31.160
  • the superintendent,
  • 00:11:31.170 --> 00:11:33.230

  • And with a happy,
  • 00:11:38.130 --> 00:11:40.160
  • joyous greeting,
  • 00:11:40.170 --> 00:11:42.270

  • 00:11:45.000 --> 00:11:47.070
  • Oh, blessed... both: Savior,
  • 00:11:47.080 --> 00:11:49.180
  • Thou will guide us

  • 00:12:15.200 --> 00:12:22.250
  • 00:12:22.260 --> 00:12:24.230
  • [cheers and applause]
  • 00:12:24.240 --> 00:12:27.250
  • - Now, do you guys still actually
  • 00:12:30.130 --> 00:12:32.100
  • do the contracting work,
  • 00:12:32.110 --> 00:12:33.230
  • or you got people now working for you,
  • 00:12:33.240 --> 00:12:35.240
  • or how...
  • 00:12:35.250 --> 00:12:37.060
  • - Yeah, we actually work every day.
  • 00:12:37.070 --> 00:12:39.130
  • - Yeah.
  • 00:12:39.140 --> 00:12:40.240
  • Josh: And we're still going to people's houses
  • 00:12:40.250 --> 00:12:42.270
  • and tapping on the door
  • 00:12:42.280 --> 00:12:44.200
  • and telling them we're here to do the work,
  • 00:12:44.210 --> 00:12:46.170
  • and so it's-- we have to keep doing it.
  • 00:12:46.180 --> 00:12:51.040
  • - And our résumé's the calluses on our hands.
  • 00:12:51.050 --> 00:12:54.070
  • [laughter]
  • 00:12:54.080 --> 00:12:56.150
  • - Boy, I-I wish my dad were here today because
  • 00:12:56.160 --> 00:13:00.130
  • he was a tool and die maker,
  • 00:13:00.140 --> 00:13:02.100
  • and he could build anything.
  • 00:13:02.110 --> 00:13:05.100
  • And he had this strange kid who loved music...
  • 00:13:05.110 --> 00:13:08.040
  • [laughter]
  • 00:13:08.050 --> 00:13:09.180
  • And I couldn't fix many things, but every now and then,
  • 00:13:09.190 --> 00:13:11.210
  • Gloria does say... [laughter]
  • 00:13:11.220 --> 00:13:14.050
  • "Bill, will you come here and help me?"
  • 00:13:14.060 --> 00:13:18.250
  • But if he were here today, he would be...
  • 00:13:18.260 --> 00:13:22.110
  • - Yeah.
  • 00:13:22.120 --> 00:13:23.220
  • - He would love what you guys did.
  • 00:13:23.230 --> 00:13:25.050
  • - I would say so. - Aww.
  • 00:13:25.060 --> 00:13:26.170
  • - And I think also--
  • 00:13:26.180 --> 00:13:28.110
  • I can remember when I was a kid,
  • 00:13:28.120 --> 00:13:30.210
  • we would go to family reunions,
  • 00:13:30.220 --> 00:13:33.010
  • and they'd say, "Well, what's your son gonna do?"
  • 00:13:33.020 --> 00:13:34.250
  • Say, "Well, he's gonna be a carpenter, you know."
  • 00:13:34.260 --> 00:13:36.270
  • "What's your"--
  • 00:13:36.280 --> 00:13:38.040
  • "Well, he's gonna be a tool and die maker."
  • 00:13:38.050 --> 00:13:39.040
  • "What's your son gonna do?"
  • 00:13:39.050 --> 00:13:40.040
  • "Well, he's gonna be a farmer."
  • 00:13:40.050 --> 00:13:41.260
  • "What's Bill gonna do?"
  • 00:13:41.270 --> 00:13:43.280
  • [both chuckle]
  • 00:13:43.290 --> 00:13:44.290
  • "Well, he likes music,"
  • 00:13:45.000 --> 00:13:46.070
  • and the next question always would be,
  • 00:13:46.080 --> 00:13:48.230
  • "But what's he gonna do for a living?"
  • 00:13:48.240 --> 00:13:50.030
  • - Exactly. - Aww, yeah.
  • 00:13:50.040 --> 00:13:53.140
  • - But in all fairness,
  • 00:13:53.150 --> 00:13:54.280
  • and I tell a lot of young artists this
  • 00:13:54.290 --> 00:13:56.280
  • when they wanna get into music, I say,
  • 00:13:56.290 --> 00:14:00.090
  • "Get a day job."
  • 00:14:00.100 --> 00:14:01.200
  • But you guys started out with your day job, right?
  • 00:14:01.210 --> 00:14:04.150
  • - Mm-hmm. Yep.
  • 00:14:04.160 --> 00:14:05.280
  • - And all of a sudden, the thing that you loved--
  • 00:14:05.290 --> 00:14:07.260
  • I mean, I say that.
  • 00:14:07.270 --> 00:14:10.060
  • I bet you loved carp-- being a carpenter also, right?
  • 00:14:10.070 --> 00:14:13.020
  • - Yes.
  • 00:14:13.030 --> 00:14:14.120
  • - Yeah, I like being able to
  • 00:14:14.130 --> 00:14:15.290
  • take something out of nothing and build something
  • 00:14:16.000 --> 00:14:18.190
  • or even take a room and when you start it out,
  • 00:14:18.200 --> 00:14:22.070
  • it looks terrible, and when you finish,
  • 00:14:22.080 --> 00:14:24.120
  • it looks good, and you feel like
  • 00:14:24.130 --> 00:14:26.010
  • you've accomplished something, so...
  • 00:14:26.020 --> 00:14:28.040
  • - I--you know, I can see that,
  • 00:14:28.050 --> 00:14:29.280
  • and I can see the art that's also involved
  • 00:14:29.290 --> 00:14:32.070
  • in making a beautiful home.
  • 00:14:32.080 --> 00:14:34.150
  • You know, a lot of your songs are about power
  • 00:14:34.160 --> 00:14:38.160
  • and masculine men kind of things.
  • 00:14:38.170 --> 00:14:42.220
  • It might be interesting to watch those
  • 00:14:42.230 --> 00:14:44.220
  • or to check out those 100 million views.
  • 00:14:44.230 --> 00:14:48.060
  • I bet you got a lot of men watching what you do
  • 00:14:48.070 --> 00:14:50.170
  • and saying, "They look like
  • 00:14:50.180 --> 00:14:52.100
  • they understand what I'm doing."
  • 00:14:52.110 --> 00:14:53.160
  • Some of these singers sometimes
  • 00:14:53.170 --> 00:14:55.250
  • don't look like they can identify with the regular folks
  • 00:14:55.260 --> 00:14:58.180
  • who go to work every morning.
  • 00:14:58.190 --> 00:15:00.060
  • - I think that's why the people that do follow us
  • 00:15:00.070 --> 00:15:03.090
  • maybe appreciate it,
  • 00:15:03.100 --> 00:15:04.150
  • because they know what it's like
  • 00:15:04.160 --> 00:15:06.030
  • to work week to week,
  • 00:15:06.040 --> 00:15:08.010
  • and we go out and do the things
  • 00:15:08.020 --> 00:15:09.270
  • you don't wanna do for a living, you know,
  • 00:15:09.280 --> 00:15:12.070
  • to pay your bills, so that's why we do what we do.
  • 00:15:12.080 --> 00:15:14.290
  • - Yeah.
  • 00:15:15.000 --> 00:15:16.090
  • - And it's also--you know,
  • 00:15:16.100 --> 00:15:18.020
  • the songs that you have selected, this,
  • 00:15:18.030 --> 00:15:20.040
  • "There's power, power,
  • 00:15:20.050 --> 00:15:22.270
  • wondrous-working power in the blood of the Lamb,"
  • 00:15:22.280 --> 00:15:28.060
  • folks can identify with that.
  • 00:15:28.070 --> 00:15:30.060
  • [bright music]
  • 00:15:30.070 --> 00:15:33.060

  • with a hammer? [laughter]
  • 00:17:57.200 --> 00:18:01.290
  • - Well, we always hope it'll be, "Praise the Lord."
  • 00:18:02.000 --> 00:18:04.240
  • [laughter] - Yeah.
  • 00:18:04.250 --> 00:18:07.150
  • - We've made up a lot of different words
  • 00:18:08.210 --> 00:18:12.050
  • to try to steer away from the actual words.
  • 00:18:12.060 --> 00:18:15.130
  • - Yeah, and it happens a lot.
  • 00:18:15.140 --> 00:18:19.000
  • - Oh, thank You, Jesus.
  • 00:18:19.010 --> 00:18:21.010
  • [laughter]
  • 00:18:21.020 --> 00:18:23.090
  • - Well, I tell you what. I've seen you guys.
  • 00:18:23.100 --> 00:18:25.110
  • In fact, I saw you sing at the Pacer game.
  • 00:18:25.120 --> 00:18:26.280
  • You did the anthem.
  • 00:18:26.290 --> 00:18:28.220
  • And you were fantastic.
  • 00:18:28.230 --> 00:18:30.120
  • And the people-- the people loved you.
  • 00:18:30.130 --> 00:18:32.180
  • Have you ever seen so many tall people in your life?
  • 00:18:32.190 --> 00:18:35.040
  • - Oh, my goodness. We felt so short.
  • 00:18:35.050 --> 00:18:37.090
  • - I know. [laughter]
  • 00:18:37.100 --> 00:18:39.090
  • - Oh, my word. Yeah.
  • 00:18:39.100 --> 00:18:41.180
  • - But some of them could use
  • 00:18:41.190 --> 00:18:42.290
  • your beef, though, too, you know?
  • 00:18:43.000 --> 00:18:44.130
  • - Yeah, especially in the game.
  • 00:18:44.140 --> 00:18:45.230
  • [laughter]
  • 00:18:45.240 --> 00:18:48.180
  • - You know what?
  • 00:18:48.190 --> 00:18:49.220
  • You've got a lot of wonderful songs that
  • 00:18:49.230 --> 00:18:52.180
  • so many people love,
  • 00:18:52.190 --> 00:18:54.240
  • but I suppose there is no song as popular
  • 00:18:54.250 --> 00:18:59.010
  • as this great old hymn
  • 00:18:59.020 --> 00:19:02.180
  • written by a tough old character
  • 00:19:02.190 --> 00:19:05.020
  • who owned a slave ship
  • 00:19:05.030 --> 00:19:08.160
  • and had done it for a long time,
  • 00:19:08.170 --> 00:19:10.160
  • made his living doing it,
  • 00:19:10.170 --> 00:19:12.160
  • and one day got convicted and said,
  • 00:19:12.170 --> 00:19:15.090
  • "This is wrong."
  • 00:19:15.100 --> 00:19:16.250
  • - Mm-hmm, yeah.
  • 00:19:16.260 --> 00:19:18.140
  • - And what a lyric. - Oh, my.
  • 00:19:18.150 --> 00:19:20.250
  • - "Amazing grace..." - Yes.
  • 00:19:20.260 --> 00:19:22.110
  • - "How sweet the sound that saved a wretch..."
  • 00:19:22.120 --> 00:19:24.250
  • - "Like me." - Mm-hmm.
  • 00:19:24.260 --> 00:19:26.110
  • - Can you identify with that? - Absolutely.
  • 00:19:26.120 --> 00:19:28.190
  • - Can we ever.
  • 00:19:28.200 --> 00:19:29.240
  • - Where would we be without His amazing grace?
  • 00:19:29.250 --> 00:19:31.190
  • - Yeah. - And so thankful for that.
  • 00:19:31.200 --> 00:19:34.160
  • - Yeah, if most was to see
  • 00:19:34.170 --> 00:19:39.220
  • where we've come from and seen
  • 00:19:39.230 --> 00:19:42.170
  • the things that we've done and the things--
  • 00:19:42.180 --> 00:19:45.260
  • and what's--when I say that,
  • 00:19:45.270 --> 00:19:48.180
  • I'm very thankful for a heritage that
  • 00:19:48.190 --> 00:19:51.150
  • I had a dad and mom that taught me the right way.
  • 00:19:51.160 --> 00:19:54.010
  • And I was raised in church,
  • 00:19:54.020 --> 00:19:56.120
  • but then when I got out on my own
  • 00:19:56.130 --> 00:19:58.140
  • and was introduced to the workforce,
  • 00:19:58.150 --> 00:20:03.110
  • I did things that I was very ashamed of.
  • 00:20:03.120 --> 00:20:05.250
  • And so it is amazing grace--
  • 00:20:05.260 --> 00:20:09.020
  • His amazing grace--
  • 00:20:09.030 --> 00:20:10.170
  • and, man, we just can't believe
  • 00:20:10.180 --> 00:20:14.090
  • of what He's done and the change He's done in us.
  • 00:20:14.100 --> 00:20:16.100
  • - That's right.
  • 00:20:16.110 --> 00:20:17.200
  • [reverent music]
  • 00:20:17.210 --> 00:20:20.010
  • Amazing grace,
  • 00:20:20.020 --> 00:20:24.160
  • how sweet the sound
  • 00:20:24.170 --> 00:20:27.290
  • that saved a wretch
  • 00:20:28.000 --> 00:20:28.030
  • like me.
  • 00:20:32.070 --> 00:20:35.270
  • I once was lost,
  • 00:20:35.280 --> 00:20:40.070
  • but now I'm found,
  • 00:20:40.080 --> 00:20:43.250
  • was blind, but now
  • 00:20:43.260 --> 00:20:47.240
  • I see.
  • 00:20:47.250 --> 00:20:51.170
  • 'Twas grace...
  • 00:20:51.180 --> 00:20:53.200
  • both: That taught
  • 00:20:53.210 --> 00:20:56.010
  • my heart to fear
  • 00:20:56.020 --> 00:20:59.280
  • and grace
  • 00:20:59.290 --> 00:21:01.120
  • my fears relieved.
  • 00:21:01.130 --> 00:21:07.170
  • How precious did
  • 00:21:07.180 --> 00:21:11.230
  • that grace appear

  • 00:21:21.270 --> 00:21:23.150
  • - When we've been there... - Been there...
  • 00:21:23.160 --> 00:21:27.210
  • both: 10.000 years,
  • 00:21:27.220 --> 00:21:31.090
  • bright shining as
  • 00:21:31.100 --> 00:21:35.220
  • the sun,
  • 00:21:35.230 --> 00:21:39.060

  • to sing God's praise
  • 00:21:43.190 --> 00:21:47.030
  • than when
  • 00:21:47.040 --> 00:21:49.030
  • we've first begun.

  • 00:21:53.200 --> 00:21:55.010
  • Amazing grace,

  • I see.
  • 00:22:22.260 --> 00:22:26.230
  • - Was blind,

  • 00:22:41.210 --> 00:22:45.190
  • [cheers and applause]
  • 00:22:45.200 --> 00:22:48.210
  • - Whoo, I am thankful for His amazing grace.
  • 00:22:52.230 --> 00:22:55.250
  • If it wasn't for His amazing grace,
  • 00:22:55.260 --> 00:22:58.130
  • wouldn't be here tonight.
  • 00:22:58.140 --> 00:23:01.040
  • Thankful for forgiveness, God's mercy in my life.
  • 00:23:01.050 --> 00:23:04.260
  • We had the honor and the privilege
  • 00:23:04.270 --> 00:23:06.290
  • to sing this next song
  • 00:23:07.000 --> 00:23:09.140
  • for our governor of the state of Indiana,
  • 00:23:09.150 --> 00:23:13.010
  • and it was a big deal to us
  • 00:23:13.020 --> 00:23:14.210
  • because all that stuff had been happening.
  • 00:23:14.220 --> 00:23:17.000
  • And so we get down there-- and this was when our governor,
  • 00:23:17.010 --> 00:23:20.140
  • Mike Pence, was still our governor.
  • 00:23:20.150 --> 00:23:23.010
  • We didn't know he'd be the vice president.
  • 00:23:23.020 --> 00:23:25.160
  • But we got to sing this song,
  • 00:23:25.170 --> 00:23:27.120
  • and you always feel the nerves come in
  • 00:23:27.130 --> 00:23:30.270
  • and take over, but when you start singing
  • 00:23:30.280 --> 00:23:34.100
  • and you sing for God,
  • 00:23:34.110 --> 00:23:35.250
  • He always helps every time you do it.
  • 00:23:35.260 --> 00:23:38.220
  • And we got to sing this song for him.
  • 00:23:38.230 --> 00:23:40.260
  • And I never get tired of singing about God,
  • 00:23:40.270 --> 00:23:44.130
  • for what He's done for us,
  • 00:23:44.140 --> 00:23:45.270
  • but I'm thankful for our country.
  • 00:23:45.280 --> 00:23:47.110
  • - Yes. - I'm thankful for those
  • 00:23:47.120 --> 00:23:48.200
  • who served, who are still serving.
  • 00:23:48.210 --> 00:23:50.270

  • we salute you, and we respect you,
  • 00:23:52.280 --> 00:23:55.190

  • 00:23:55.200 --> 00:24:00.270
  • [gentle piano flourish]
  • 00:24:00.280 --> 00:24:03.290
  • both: God bless America,
  • 00:24:07.150 --> 00:24:13.060
  • land that I love.
  • 00:24:13.070 --> 00:24:18.080
  • Stand beside her
  • 00:24:18.090 --> 00:24:21.160
  • and guide her
  • 00:24:21.170 --> 00:24:24.150
  • through the night with the light
  • 00:24:24.160 --> 00:24:27.250
  • from above.
  • 00:24:27.260 --> 00:24:30.190
  • From the mountains
  • 00:24:30.200 --> 00:24:33.260
  • through the prairies
  • 00:24:33.270 --> 00:24:37.010
  • to the oceans,
  • 00:24:37.020 --> 00:24:40.110
  • white with foam,
  • 00:24:40.120 --> 00:24:44.210
  • God bless America,

  • sweet home.
  • 00:25:09.020 --> 00:25:17.160
  • [cheers and applause]
  • 00:25:17.170 --> 00:25:20.180
  • - You guys married? both: Yes.
  • 00:25:32.240 --> 00:25:35.110
  • - I'm married almost 24 years now.
  • 00:25:35.120 --> 00:25:38.020
  • - Ah, 24 years. - Yes.
  • 00:25:38.030 --> 00:25:40.240
  • Bill: You got kids? Josh: Yup.
  • 00:25:40.250 --> 00:25:42.010
  • I have four beautiful kids.
  • 00:25:42.020 --> 00:25:43.110
  • They're 23, 21,
  • 00:25:43.120 --> 00:25:46.210
  • 19, and 14.
  • 00:25:46.220 --> 00:25:48.240
  • Bill: My lands. Josh: Three girls and a boy.
  • 00:25:48.250 --> 00:25:50.240
  • - They singers or carpenters?
  • 00:25:50.250 --> 00:25:53.110
  • - Some singers, and some go to college,
  • 00:25:53.120 --> 00:25:56.010
  • and a little bit of everything, I guess.
  • 00:25:56.020 --> 00:25:57.210
  • - Yeah. Aaron, you married?
  • 00:25:57.220 --> 00:25:59.250
  • - I am married, 22 years,
  • 00:25:59.260 --> 00:26:01.190
  • and I have three kids.
  • 00:26:01.200 --> 00:26:04.060
  • I have a daughter that's 18
  • 00:26:04.070 --> 00:26:05.280
  • and a boy, 14, and another boy, 11.
  • 00:26:05.290 --> 00:26:10.030
  • - And raising kids is just a piece of cake, isn't it?
  • 00:26:10.040 --> 00:26:12.200
  • There's nothing-- [laughter]
  • 00:26:12.210 --> 00:26:14.290
  • - Wow. Yeah.
  • 00:26:15.000 --> 00:26:18.200
  • - Well, kids are kids.
  • 00:26:18.210 --> 00:26:21.110
  • When we had our third baby, a little boy,
  • 00:26:21.120 --> 00:26:26.060
  • we wrote this song, "Because He Lives,"
  • 00:26:26.070 --> 00:26:28.160
  • "How sweet to hold..."
  • 00:26:28.170 --> 00:26:30.010
  • - Man.
  • 00:26:30.020 --> 00:26:31.120
  • - "A newborn baby and feel the pride."
  • 00:26:31.130 --> 00:26:34.020
  • There is no pride like a dad looking...
  • 00:26:34.030 --> 00:26:36.200
  • [laughing] In the face of...
  • 00:26:36.210 --> 00:26:38.100
  • and say, "One day,
  • 00:26:38.110 --> 00:26:40.240
  • this kid's gonna amount to something," right?
  • 00:26:40.250 --> 00:26:42.180
  • - Hopefully. - Yeah.
  • 00:26:42.190 --> 00:26:44.010
  • - It really is the truth.
  • 00:26:44.020 --> 00:26:47.140
  • "Because He lives, I can face tomorrow,"
  • 00:26:47.150 --> 00:26:49.070
  • because sometimes we feel like we can't get up
  • 00:26:49.080 --> 00:26:52.220
  • and go to work.
  • 00:26:52.230 --> 00:26:54.020
  • And I--so many times, I turn that on,
  • 00:26:54.030 --> 00:26:56.140
  • and especially here lately-- I have it on my Pandora.
  • 00:26:56.150 --> 00:27:01.020
  • [clears throat]
  • 00:27:01.030 --> 00:27:02.130
  • And I'll push "Because He lives, I can face tomorrow."
  • 00:27:02.140 --> 00:27:05.010
  • And it really is a great song. - Yeah.
  • 00:27:05.020 --> 00:27:08.230
  • - You know, as children of God,
  • 00:27:08.240 --> 00:27:11.060
  • we're not supposed to live in fear.
  • 00:27:11.070 --> 00:27:13.280
  • We live in hope.
  • 00:27:13.290 --> 00:27:16.030
  • I don't care how dark the day is,
  • 00:27:16.040 --> 00:27:18.050
  • and the days do get dark.
  • 00:27:18.060 --> 00:27:20.060
  • There's times-- and the burdens do press in.
  • 00:27:20.070 --> 00:27:24.100
  • And hard times come to everybody.
  • 00:27:24.110 --> 00:27:26.150
  • They come to ev-- nobody's exempt.
  • 00:27:26.160 --> 00:27:29.000
  • Nobody's exempt.
  • 00:27:29.010 --> 00:27:30.180
  • But for the child of God...
  • 00:27:30.190 --> 00:27:32.130
  • - Oh, yes. [sniffs]
  • 00:27:32.140 --> 00:27:34.140
  • - "Life is worth the living
  • 00:27:34.150 --> 00:27:36.190
  • just because He lives."
  • 00:27:36.200 --> 00:27:38.070
  • - Amen. - Yeah.
  • 00:27:38.080 --> 00:27:39.260
  • - Because I know,
  • 00:27:39.270 --> 00:27:43.260
  • I know He holds
  • 00:27:43.270 --> 00:27:46.200
  • the future,
  • 00:27:46.210 --> 00:27:50.190
  • and life is worth the living
  • 00:27:50.200 --> 00:27:54.230
  • just because He lives.
  • 00:27:54.240 --> 00:28:01.090
  • - God sent His Son.
  • 00:28:01.100 --> 00:28:06.220
  • They called Him Jesus.
  • 00:28:06.230 --> 00:28:12.060
  • He came to love,
  • 00:28:12.070 --> 00:28:17.160
  • heal, and forgive.
  • 00:28:17.170 --> 00:28:23.160
  • both: He lived and died
  • 00:28:23.170 --> 00:28:28.180
  • to buy my pardon.
  • 00:28:28.190 --> 00:28:32.250
  • 00:28:32.260 --> 00:28:34.110
  • An empty grave
  • 00:28:34.120 --> 00:28:36.250
  • is there to prove
  • 00:28:36.260 --> 00:28:39.260
  • my Savior lives.
  • 00:28:39.270 --> 00:28:43.160
  • 00:28:43.170 --> 00:28:45.160
  • Because He lives,
  • 00:28:45.170 --> 00:28:50.130
  • I can face tomorrow.
  • 00:28:50.140 --> 00:28:54.070
  • 00:28:54.080 --> 00:28:56.070
  • Because He lives,
  • 00:28:56.080 --> 00:29:01.120
  • all fear is gone.
  • 00:29:01.130 --> 00:29:05.060
  • 00:29:05.070 --> 00:29:07.030
  • Because I know,
  • 00:29:07.040 --> 00:29:11.070
  • I know He holds
  • 00:29:11.080 --> 00:29:14.010
  • the future,
  • 00:29:14.020 --> 00:29:18.010

  • 00:29:22.130 --> 00:29:27.070
  • 00:29:27.080 --> 00:29:28.250
  • - And then one day,
  • 00:29:28.260 --> 00:29:33.290
  • I'll cross
  • 00:29:34.000 --> 00:29:36.220
  • that river.
  • 00:29:36.230 --> 00:29:39.270
  • I'll fight
  • 00:29:39.280 --> 00:29:41.290
  • life's final
  • 00:29:42.000 --> 00:29:45.150
  • war with pain.
  • 00:29:45.160 --> 00:29:50.210
  • And then
  • 00:29:50.220 --> 00:29:52.260
  • as death
  • 00:29:52.270 --> 00:29:55.270
  • gives way to victory,
  • 00:29:55.280 --> 00:30:00.290
  • I'll see the lights
  • 00:30:01.000 --> 00:30:04.090
  • of glory, and
  • 00:30:04.100 --> 00:30:07.050
  • I'll know He reigns.
  • 00:30:07.060 --> 00:30:12.220
  • - How sweet to hold
  • 00:30:12.230 --> 00:30:18.080
  • a newborn baby
  • 00:30:18.090 --> 00:30:23.170
  • and feel the pride
  • 00:30:23.180 --> 00:30:28.270
  • and the joy they give.
  • 00:30:28.280 --> 00:30:33.260
  • Oh, but greater still,
  • 00:30:33.270 --> 00:30:39.120
  • the calm assurance
  • 00:30:39.130 --> 00:30:45.010
  • this child can face
  • 00:30:45.020 --> 00:30:48.010
  • uncertain days
  • 00:30:48.020 --> 00:30:50.250
  • because He lives.
  • 00:30:50.260 --> 00:30:55.240
  • both: And because He lives,
  • 00:30:55.250 --> 00:31:01.040
  • I can face tomorrow.
  • 00:31:01.050 --> 00:31:06.150
  • Because He lives,
  • 00:31:06.160 --> 00:31:12.030
  • all fear is gone.
  • 00:31:12.040 --> 00:31:17.200
  • Because I know,

  • I know
  • 00:31:21.040 --> 00:31:23.190
  • He holds the future,
  • 00:31:23.200 --> 00:31:28.160
  • and life is worth the living
  • 00:31:28.170 --> 00:31:33.080

  • And life is worth the living

  • 00:31:44.070 --> 00:31:51.140
  • He lives.
  • 00:31:51.150 --> 00:31:59.030
  • [cheers and applause]
  • 00:31:59.040 --> 00:32:02.070
  • to be here tonight
  • 00:32:10.200 --> 00:32:12.270
  • to sing to y'all about a risen Savior.
  • 00:32:12.280 --> 00:32:15.290
  • We serve a great God, don't we?
  • 00:32:16.000 --> 00:32:18.050
  • - Yes. - Amen.
  • 00:32:18.060 --> 00:32:20.090
  • We have had an unbelievable journey
  • 00:32:20.100 --> 00:32:23.270
  • starting about three years ago.
  • 00:32:23.280 --> 00:32:25.180
  • What was it, Josh? He always has the dates on him.
  • 00:32:25.190 --> 00:32:28.190
  • - September, I think, 15th... - Look at him.
  • 00:32:28.200 --> 00:32:30.170
  • He just rattled it right off. - 2015, somewhere in there.
  • 00:32:30.180 --> 00:32:33.230
  • - But God took two guys that
  • 00:32:33.240 --> 00:32:35.280
  • was most likely not to succeed...
  • 00:32:35.290 --> 00:32:38.060
  • [soft laughter]
  • 00:32:38.070 --> 00:32:40.120
  • And that was not supposed to be a joke.
  • 00:32:40.130 --> 00:32:42.110
  • [laughter]
  • 00:32:42.120 --> 00:32:45.010
  • But He said, "I'm gonna take two guys that have messed up
  • 00:32:46.120 --> 00:32:51.060
  • and has failed Me, and I'm gonna"--
  • 00:32:51.070 --> 00:32:54.210
  • Well, and actually, we--he--
  • 00:32:54.220 --> 00:32:57.170
  • we kind of did it for fun and almost as a joke at first.
  • 00:32:57.180 --> 00:33:02.210
  • But then we sang His songs,
  • 00:33:02.220 --> 00:33:04.270
  • and He said, "I'm gonna use these guys.
  • 00:33:04.280 --> 00:33:07.160
  • They think it's a joke, but I'm gonna use them."
  • 00:33:07.170 --> 00:33:10.190
  • And we was talking the other day.
  • 00:33:10.200 --> 00:33:12.200
  • At that time,
  • 00:33:12.210 --> 00:33:14.110
  • when God chose this journey to begin,
  • 00:33:14.120 --> 00:33:19.070
  • we literally was probably not spiritual ready
  • 00:33:19.080 --> 00:33:24.020
  • for what was about to happen.
  • 00:33:24.030 --> 00:33:26.230
  • But it is amazing what God has done in our lives since then.
  • 00:33:26.240 --> 00:33:30.160
  • He has began to shape and mold us.
  • 00:33:30.170 --> 00:33:32.270
  • It's--it was...
  • 00:33:32.280 --> 00:33:35.250
  • very humbling.
  • 00:33:35.260 --> 00:33:37.170
  • We was raised in Christian homes.
  • 00:33:37.180 --> 00:33:40.000
  • My mommy and daddy raised me right,
  • 00:33:40.010 --> 00:33:41.170
  • and they taught me right,
  • 00:33:41.180 --> 00:33:43.160
  • but along the way... - Yeah.
  • 00:33:43.170 --> 00:33:45.130
  • - You do things that you're ashamed of,
  • 00:33:45.140 --> 00:33:47.270
  • you mess up,
  • 00:33:47.280 --> 00:33:49.090
  • you make a mess of things when you do it on your own, right?
  • 00:33:49.100 --> 00:33:52.180
  • [crowd agreeing]
  • 00:33:52.190 --> 00:33:53.280
  • But I'm so thankful for His forgiveness
  • 00:33:53.290 --> 00:33:55.200
  • and His mercy and His grace.
  • 00:33:55.210 --> 00:33:57.260
  • It has been so good to us. - Yeah.
  • 00:33:57.270 --> 00:34:00.040
  • - And that's why we are up here tonight.
  • 00:34:00.050 --> 00:34:02.200
  • I would've never dreamed all these years--
  • 00:34:02.210 --> 00:34:06.090
  • I would've never dreamed to be here tonight.
  • 00:34:06.100 --> 00:34:08.180
  • And so it's just so unbelievable to us.
  • 00:34:08.190 --> 00:34:11.000
  • - Yes, absolutely.
  • 00:34:11.010 --> 00:34:12.010
  • - And to have these guys behind us,
  • 00:34:12.020 --> 00:34:13.210
  • it's just--it's amazing.
  • 00:34:13.220 --> 00:34:15.180
  • So--and... - It is no secret.
  • 00:34:15.190 --> 00:34:18.100
  • - It is no secret what God can do.
  • 00:34:18.110 --> 00:34:20.110
  • I can tell you that.
  • 00:34:20.120 --> 00:34:22.010
  • It is no secret. Amen.
  • 00:34:22.020 --> 00:34:24.020
  • [soft music]
  • 00:34:24.030 --> 00:34:25.150
  • both: It is no secret
  • 00:34:25.160 --> 00:34:31.080
  • what God can do.

  • What He's done for others,
  • 00:34:37.120 --> 00:34:43.150
  • He'll do for you.

  • With arms wide open,
  • 00:34:49.190 --> 00:34:55.270
  • He'll pardon you.
  • 00:34:55.280 --> 00:35:02.060

  • 00:35:13.230 --> 00:35:16.060
  • - Have we trials
  • 00:35:16.070 --> 00:35:18.200
  • and temptations?
  • 00:35:18.210 --> 00:35:22.110
  • Is there
  • 00:35:22.120 --> 00:35:24.130
  • trouble anywhere?
  • 00:35:24.140 --> 00:35:28.210
  • We should never be
  • 00:35:28.220 --> 00:35:32.140
  • discouraged.
  • 00:35:32.150 --> 00:35:35.030
  • Take it to the Lord
  • 00:35:35.040 --> 00:35:37.230
  • in prayer.
  • 00:35:37.240 --> 00:35:41.000
  • Can we find a friend
  • 00:35:41.010 --> 00:35:44.170
  • so faithful who will
  • 00:35:44.180 --> 00:35:48.160
  • all our sorrows share?
  • 00:35:48.170 --> 00:35:53.110
  • Jesus knows

  • 00:40:35.080 --> 00:40:40.120
  • known.
  • 00:40:40.130 --> 00:40:42.280
  • - Ooh.
  • 00:40:42.290 --> 00:40:45.260
  • [both holding note]
  • 00:40:45.270 --> 00:40:50.090

  • If we get out of line...
  • 00:41:14.010 --> 00:41:16.210
  • - You know what?
  • 00:41:16.220 --> 00:41:18.020
  • Jason Clark told me about these guys,
  • 00:41:18.030 --> 00:41:20.190
  • and I thought,
  • 00:41:20.200 --> 00:41:22.020
  • "Oh, Singing Contractors, that's a--
  • 00:41:22.030 --> 00:41:23.250
  • You know, it must be some kind of gimmick."
  • 00:41:23.260 --> 00:41:26.270
  • But then I heard them, and I heard--
  • 00:41:26.280 --> 00:41:29.180
  • I mean, these guys got some pipes.
  • 00:41:29.190 --> 00:41:31.280
  • [laughter]
  • 00:41:31.290 --> 00:41:33.100
  • And when I went, I said, "Wow.
  • 00:41:33.110 --> 00:41:35.190
  • Those guys." [stammers]
  • 00:41:35.200 --> 00:41:37.150
  • I'm serious. I'm sure--
  • 00:41:37.160 --> 00:41:39.040

  • And a lot of folks--
  • 00:41:45.260 --> 00:41:47.260
  • I think we need to make the announcement tonight.
  • 00:41:47.270 --> 00:41:49.270
  • Greg, would you stand up? Would you stand up?
  • 00:41:49.280 --> 00:41:53.080
  • A lot of folks don't know this,
  • 00:41:53.090 --> 00:41:54.210
  • but because of DNA testing now...
  • 00:41:54.220 --> 00:41:58.000
  • [scattered laughter]
  • 00:41:58.010 --> 00:42:01.240

  • and if you go to Washington, D.C.,
  • 00:42:24.180 --> 00:42:27.080
  • stay out of the theater.
  • 00:42:27.090 --> 00:42:29.000
  • Stay out of the theater. [laughter]
  • 00:42:29.010 --> 00:42:30.150
  • Bad. Bad.
  • 00:42:30.160 --> 00:42:34.150
  • Bad, bad.
  • 00:42:34.160 --> 00:42:35.200

  • I feel like I'm putting--
  • 00:42:42.010 --> 00:42:43.110
  • I feel like I'm putting my hammer on the altar.
  • 00:42:43.120 --> 00:42:46.050

  • I'd rather hear Kevin play than eat.
  • 00:43:00.140 --> 00:43:03.130
  • I heard him eat last night, and I don't--
  • 00:43:03.140 --> 00:43:05.190
  • [laughter] Okay.
  • 00:43:05.200 --> 00:43:07.210
  • Could you just lead it? Dun, dun, dun.
  • 00:43:07.220 --> 00:43:10.170
  • You got the melody?
  • 00:43:10.180 --> 00:43:11.180
  • - We don't know what the song is.
  • 00:43:11.190 --> 00:43:13.010
  • - What? What?
  • 00:43:13.020 --> 00:43:14.020
  • - We don't know what the song is.
  • 00:43:14.030 --> 00:43:15.250

  • - Can you hear anything I'm saying up there?
  • 00:43:17.260 --> 00:43:19.220
  • - No, I can hear what you're saying.
  • 00:43:19.230 --> 00:43:21.020

  • Gloria walked in the room the other day and said,
  • 00:43:22.130 --> 00:43:25.000
  • "Bill, I'm proud of you," and he stood up and said,
  • 00:43:25.010 --> 00:43:27.250

  • I am...
  • 00:44:01.060 --> 00:44:06.070
  • - Now that I know.
  • 00:44:06.080 --> 00:44:07.170
  • [together] Now that I know

  • - Do the chorus again.
  • 00:44:26.030 --> 00:44:28.200
  • I love this song.
  • 00:44:28.210 --> 00:44:30.140
  • [together] Lord, help me, Jesus.
  • 00:44:30.150 --> 00:44:35.220

  • [cheers and applause]
  • 00:45:19.130 --> 00:45:22.140
  • - If you ever believed in God's providence,
  • 00:45:32.150 --> 00:45:35.100
  • the fact that God put
  • 00:45:35.110 --> 00:45:38.250
  • Mark Lowry and Buddy Greene together
  • 00:45:38.260 --> 00:45:42.190
  • at the right time in history--
  • 00:45:42.200 --> 00:45:44.050
  • and I can remember it was probably in '88, '89,
  • 00:45:44.060 --> 00:45:47.070
  • somewhere along there.
  • 00:45:47.080 --> 00:45:49.200
  • And they were on our bus.
  • 00:45:49.210 --> 00:45:52.240
  • And--and Mark had written a few things but not a lot.
  • 00:45:52.250 --> 00:45:57.190
  • Buddy'd written a few, not a lot,
  • 00:45:57.200 --> 00:46:00.270
  • but was trying to find a place for that lyric
  • 00:46:00.280 --> 00:46:05.090
  • that he had written maybe three or four, five years earlier.
  • 00:46:05.100 --> 00:46:10.020
  • And it just came out of an inquisitive mind about,
  • 00:46:11.120 --> 00:46:15.240
  • did the mother of our Savior
  • 00:46:15.250 --> 00:46:20.240
  • really know what was going on
  • 00:46:20.250 --> 00:46:24.230
  • and what was gonna happen?
  • 00:46:24.240 --> 00:46:27.210
  • You sing the song, right?
  • 00:46:27.220 --> 00:46:29.110
  • - We sing this song, and...
  • 00:46:29.120 --> 00:46:31.120
  • it was just like,
  • 00:46:31.130 --> 00:46:33.120
  • all over again, God took something...
  • 00:46:33.130 --> 00:46:37.190
  • Josh: So simple, yeah.
  • 00:46:37.200 --> 00:46:38.250
  • Aaron: That we kind of laughed at
  • 00:46:38.260 --> 00:46:40.190
  • and didn't think we would do good at,
  • 00:46:40.200 --> 00:46:42.280
  • and we probably didn't do it justice,
  • 00:46:42.290 --> 00:46:45.100
  • but He said, "I'm gonna take that again and bless it."
  • 00:46:45.110 --> 00:46:48.090
  • And almost 50 million people
  • 00:46:48.100 --> 00:46:51.040
  • have viewed that on one video.
  • 00:46:51.050 --> 00:46:54.030
  • And why would a...
  • 00:46:54.040 --> 00:46:56.260
  • - And we say that not to be boastful in the views.
  • 00:46:56.270 --> 00:47:00.210
  • - Right. - Yeah, sure.
  • 00:47:00.220 --> 00:47:01.240
  • - We say that because we realized
  • 00:47:01.250 --> 00:47:04.040
  • that it is souls hearing the gospel.
  • 00:47:04.050 --> 00:47:06.270
  • Even though it's a simple message of,
  • 00:47:06.280 --> 00:47:09.260
  • "Mary, did you know"... whatever it can be
  • 00:47:09.270 --> 00:47:12.160
  • that we can sing to uplift somebody, to reach their soul,
  • 00:47:12.170 --> 00:47:16.000
  • that's why we are thrilled about the number
  • 00:47:16.010 --> 00:47:18.190
  • is because it is reaching somebody
  • 00:47:18.200 --> 00:47:20.280
  • that would not hear the gospel.
  • 00:47:20.290 --> 00:47:22.290
  • And I think that's kind of our way of being able to do that.
  • 00:47:23.000 --> 00:47:27.220
  • Mary, did you know
  • 00:47:27.230 --> 00:47:30.160
  • that your baby boy
  • 00:47:30.170 --> 00:47:33.240
  • would one day walk on water?
  • 00:47:33.250 --> 00:47:37.220
  • - Mary, did you know
  • 00:47:37.230 --> 00:47:41.230
  • that your baby boy
  • 00:47:41.240 --> 00:47:45.090
  • would save our sons
  • 00:47:45.100 --> 00:47:48.050
  • and daughters?
  • 00:47:48.060 --> 00:47:51.000
  • - Did you know
  • 00:47:51.010 --> 00:47:53.060
  • that your baby boy
  • 00:47:53.070 --> 00:47:56.270
  • has come to make you new?
  • 00:47:56.280 --> 00:48:01.080
  • - And this child that you delivered
  • 00:48:01.090 --> 00:48:05.260
  • would soon deliver you?
  • 00:48:05.270 --> 00:48:11.200
  • - Mary, did you know
  • 00:48:11.210 --> 00:48:14.060
  • that your baby boy
  • 00:48:14.070 --> 00:48:17.110
  • would give sight to
  • 00:48:17.120 --> 00:48:19.230
  • a blind man?
  • 00:48:19.240 --> 00:48:21.170
  • - Mary, did you know
  • 00:48:21.180 --> 00:48:24.260
  • that your baby boy
  • 00:48:24.270 --> 00:48:28.140
  • would calm the storms
  • 00:48:28.150 --> 00:48:31.170
  • with His hand?
  • 00:48:31.180 --> 00:48:34.130
  • - Did you know
  • 00:48:34.140 --> 00:48:36.170
  • that your baby boy
  • 00:48:36.180 --> 00:48:40.030
  • has walked where angels trod?
  • 00:48:40.040 --> 00:48:45.290
  • - And when you've kissed
  • 00:48:46.000 --> 00:48:48.130
  • your little baby,
  • 00:48:48.140 --> 00:48:51.090
  • you've kissed
  • 00:48:51.100 --> 00:48:52.290
  • the face of God?
  • 00:48:53.000 --> 00:48:57.200
  • - Mary, did you know?
  • 00:48:57.210 --> 00:49:00.040
  • - Mary, did you know?
  • 00:49:00.050 --> 00:49:03.250
  • both: The blind will see,
  • 00:49:03.260 --> 00:49:06.230
  • the deaf will hear,
  • 00:49:06.240 --> 00:49:09.270
  • and the dead
  • 00:49:09.280 --> 00:49:12.190
  • will live again.
  • 00:49:12.200 --> 00:49:15.280
  • The lame will leap.
  • 00:49:15.290 --> 00:49:18.160
  • The dumb will speak
  • 00:49:18.170 --> 00:49:21.170
  • the praises of

  • 00:49:24.130 --> 00:49:31.060
  • - Mary,
  • 00:49:31.070 --> 00:49:35.040
  • did you know...
  • 00:49:35.050 --> 00:49:37.220
  • - That your baby boy

  • [both holding note]
  • 00:50:28.220 --> 00:50:31.230

  • - Well, we've got into doing a lot of...
