Friday on Chris Fabry Live, what Kirk and Paul did during the pandemic. They decided to use that time to create sacred songs of gospel hope to inspire the church to enjoy God. The result of that effort is The Wood Drake Sessions. They stopped by the studio recently and recorded a conversation with guest host Jon Gauger. Hear the music of Kirk Sauers and Paul Ranheim on Chris Fabry Live.
