They are joined on this project, on a duet, with Scott Fowler of Legacy Five. Scott says, “I have absolutely
fallen in love with Jimmy and Jen. I am absolutely CRAZY about their songwriting. Their songs consistently hit us where life hits us! It’s rare these days for writers to be as vulnerable as Jen is with her songs. It’s so refreshing! I am so excited
to be included on their new album singing with them! They are both such incredible vocalists….I’m not sure how I talked them into this, but I can’t wait!” Scott will also be appearing in a video with Back Home.
Also joining Jimmy and Jennifer on a duet is recently Grammy Nominated, T Graham Brown who said, “I’m so happy to be a part of this new project with Jimmy and Jennifer and the song I’m singing a duet on is the one of the best I have heard, I may just have to start singing it in my concerts.”
