Jason Crabb on the Story behind “Day One”
In May of 2016 I was scheduled for a concert at Carnegie Hall with the Woodstock Baptist Choir. On the day of the concert, I received a tweet from Gloria Gaynor asking me about Carnegie Hall. I couldn’t believe it! Is this THE Gloria Gaynor? It was! So, I invited her out to the concert and asked her if she would like to sing a song with me. And, she did! We spent quite a bit of time together backstage just talking about our careers and life in general. She was working on a new Christian record with Chris Stevens (TobyMac, Mandisa, Colton Dixon) and asked me if I would like to write. I said absolutely! So, she was in Nashville for several days working on the record and invited me to write with her and Chris Stevens. When I got there, I couldn’t believe I was in the room with such greatness. It was pretty surreal. We started talking about current events, turmoil and division in the country and discussed how we longed for the love we felt the day we gave our hearts to Christ, and, how great it would be to feel that love again. That’s how “Day One” was written. We did a rough demo that day and each of us had tears in our eyes listening to it. Chris said at the end of the demo that all he needed was a warm blanket. The lyrics were powerful! Gloria said the song was going on her new record and I asked if I could record it too. I was excited. As a matter of fact, the song meant so much to me that I told my team that the new record I was getting ready to do should have that song as the foundation. I later found out from Gloria that singing at Carnegie Hall was on her “bucket list!” How cool was that for me to get to be a part of that experience with her! Only God!
