Bowyer & Bow / Capitol Christian Music Group artist, songwriter and worship leader Pat Barrett debuts a newly recorded acoustic live version of his stunning ballad “Sails.” Featuring Amanda Lindsey Cook and Steffany Gretzinger on the new recording, the single is available now in both audio and video formats.
The original studio version of “Sails” appears on Barrett’s self-titled full-length debut that topped the Christian iTunes Album chart when it released this summer. Barrett also received instant acclaim from the media upon his release, such as The Worship Podcast, CCM Magazine, Cross Rhythms and Song Revolution Podcast, while Worship Musician Magazine touted Barrett’s album debut “…filled with great songs that are just as well suited for CCM radio as they are for Sunday morning worship – we love it!”
The album’s first single, “The Way (New Horizon),” continues to climb at radio. Last week it reached No. 5 on the Christian Audience radio chart and is currently top 10 on multiple other charts.
