“The song “Who Will Pray for Me” was written during a time when my Mother passed away and then my brother died a mere four months later.” stated award winner Kathy Boyd.  “It is, however, about those times in life when we’re all looking to reach out receive a bit of understanding, and no matter how kind people are to us it just isn’t enough.”

 

The song has will be released on the bands upcoming 2017 album “40 Years of Lonesome”, but in the meantime radio stations can download a “sneak peek” of it for airplay via AirPlay Direct at www.AirPlayDirect.com/WalkHumbly
