Southern Cross Records, division of Taylor Morrison Music Group, and SouthSide Drive is excited to announce the release of the band’s latest single, “Your Love Rescued Me” from SouthSide Drive’s album with the same title available everywhere on March 2, 2015.
Written by Even Stevens, Scott Miller and Daniel Scott, “Your Love Rescued Me” tells the story of a person who is rescued by the love of another. This song is about the power of God’s love for us all and how that affects people in a positive, saving way. The song celebrates that what makes life worthwhile is the love we give to and receive from others, and it praises God for the love he brings to the world.
SouthSide Drive released the song album’s title song “Your Love Rescued Me” to Inspirational Country radio stations in the USA in June 2014. Power Source Magazine lists this first release at No. 6 nationwide as of its Nov. 2014 issue. The music on the band’s “Your Love Rescued Me” album showcases SouthSide Drive’s winning edge in the music world.
The Your Love Rescued Me CD is a compilation of wonderful music and is a joint effort by Taylor Morrison, mentor to SouthSide Drive, and Pat Holt who is the Nashville producer of Johnny Cash, Charlie Daniels and more.
“Both Randy and Gwen have become good friends and they have exceeded my expectations, and have blossomed into true musicians,” said Taylor Morrison, the band’s manager and co-producer. “It is an honor to know that I have had a part of helping them achieve their dreams….I keep the CD, Your Love Rescued Me, in my car and have about worn it out. There is something magnetic about the song that draws you it. The song makes you feel the words rather than simply hear it. Pat Holt did an amazing job with bringing the song to life and helping to create Southside Drives unique style. To me they have proven what success truly means.”
