(Plus you can download 10 free songs there as well!) The guys sat down to talk about the single & share a little bit about themselves. Check out the videos below to get to know the band & hear the story behind the song.
It’s a true story of when I was leading worship at a camp and we asked all the students at the end of the week what they learned. And I remember one of the kids there just simply said, “I Learned That It Should’ve Been Me.” And I thought it was pretty profound for a 13 year old kid. To understand the gravity and the weight of what Christ did for us on the Cross. And it really hit me, and right away I wrote this song and I sang it for him about 20 minutes later. It’s been a powerful story in my life and every time I sing that song I’m reminded of that week; I’m reminded of what Christ did for us on the Cross; and I’m reminded of how grateful I am for the life that I do have in Jesus. – Ben, Citizen Way
