"Alive" was co-written by the band's friend, recording artist Zach Williams. Williams' life direction was dramatically changed a few years ago when he heard Big Daddy Weave’s song “Redeemed” on the radio. When Williams was a guest artist on a Big Daddy Weave tour last year, he shared his song "Alive" with the band during a bus ride to the next show. The band committed to recording the song on the spot.
Mike Weaver, lead vocalist for Big Daddy Weave, shares, “As the Lord used ‘Redeemed’ to touch Zach’s life, He is now using a song that Zach wrote that so deeply speaks to where we are. This song came in its perfect timing, with us coming out of a hard life season and into a season of light. We cannot wait for everyone to hear a song that means so much to us as a band.”
Following the near death of Jay Weaver, the passing of Mike and Jay Weaver’s father on Christmas Day 2017, and the cancer diagnosis of their mother, the release of “Alive” represents a definitive statement of life for one of Christian music's biggest headlining touring artists. The band is able to share the new song along with many of their hits and fan favorites on "The Alive Tour," which just kicked off last night in Ohio. The 35-city tour is set to run through April.
