Former CCM musician Joy Williams on why she moved on

Everyone sees life through a grid. Part of my grid is faith. When I was in CCM, I was just singing about the grid. I’ve come to a point where I want to sing about what I see through the grid. In CCM, I was always pushed to sing about faith from a “victorious” angle, when I feel like so much of faith is wrestling through questions.

From an interview with Joy Williams.  Check out her new band, The Civil Wars, which does a lovely video cover of Leonard Cohen’s “Dance Me To the End of Love.”
