Musical Golden Nugget ~ Sky Spills Over~ Michael W. Smith's latest video! (And a giveaway:) )


I have an extra special golden nugget for you all today, because it includes an album giveaway! 

Michael W. Smith is an amazing musician, with a long career in writing, singing and performing. As a matter of fact two of my very first contemporary Christian albums (purchased on cassette) were Michael W. Smith's first two studio albums, Michael W. Smith Project, and  Michael W. Smith II.


Not the original album artwork...
Ask me how I know? ;) 

Yup~ my cassette cover looks just like this
Only not square... :) 
For a number of years I was a big MWS fan, and his First Christmas CD is part of our traditional Christmas Morning soundtrack. However, I eventually lost interest as many of his songs started to sound like they were written with the same formula (insert sad face). You may have discovered by now that while I have extensive musical tastes, I do tend to be a little bit picky about melodies and lyrics both. 

Fast forward to earlier this spring~ I was driving by myself, when I heard a portion of a song that caught my interest~ I later asked my daughter (who can frequently be found sporting earbuds and listening to great music) if she had heard a new song that had a really interesting rhythm and included something about "Thunder" in the lyrics. She was stumped as well, so we looked it up on our (recently defunct :( ) local radio station website~ where they published their play list as it happened. What a surprise to find out that it was Michael W. Smith! I was so happy to hear something new, innovative, and creative from him!


The song (which you may have heard if you listen to Christian Music Radio), is Sky Spills Over, found on Michael W. Smith's Sovereign album.


The album was released earlier this month, and Wed, May 27, 2015 marks the debut of a video for Sky Spills Over. The song itself is an anthem of HOPE from a lyrical point of view. The video includes that theme, but as videos often do, it seems to tell a sort of sub-story. This one appears to be a bit of lost children, meets prophecy, and a savior. 


Michael W. Smith has this to say about the video:
"I’m really passionate about the song SKY SPILLS OVER.  It was fun creating it in the studio and I’ve been overwhelmed at the response it gets when we perform it live every night.  My son Ryan is a really talented filmmaker so I always enjoy working with him on a project.  But what made this project even more special was that 3 of my own grandkids were in the video.  This video was a lot of fun to make.  I hope people enjoy it!"

Without further ado~ please enjoy Sky Spills Over ~ And when you're done listening/watching, be sure to enter in my giveaway for Michael W. Smith's Sovereign Album!
