In advance of the compilation’s release, Dan + Shay have shared a new song from The Shack: Music From and Inspired by the Original Motion Picture. Listen to the inspirational track “When I Pray for You” and watch the accompanying music video above.
The duo sings of praying for a child in the emotional song, exclaiming, “When this life knocks you down, I hope you get down on your knees” at the peak of each chorus. The song’s message parallels the film’s depiction of a father-daughter relationship.
The soundtrack to The Shack is out February 24th. In late January, Tim McGraw and Faith Hill shared a new song from the compilation, a touching ballad called “Keep Your Eyes on Me.” The couple co-wrote the song with Shane McAnally and Lori McKenna, marking the first time McGraw and Hill have written a song together.
Other artists on the soundtrack include Lady Antebellum, Dierks Bentley and Brett Eldredge. The Shack, which was based on the William P. Young book of the same name, is in theaters March 3rd. McGraw also appears in the movie, playing the character Willie.
Dan + Shay are on tour through the summer. Their latest single “How Not To” is currently hovering outside the top 30 on Billboard‘s Hot Country Songs Chart.
