Gotee Records' Ryan Stevenson is starting his 2018 strong with the release of brand new music with the song "No Matter What (feat. Bart Millard of MercyMe)." Stevenson is coming off the heels of a successful 2017 and already this year two of his own songs have charted on the Billboard's Top 40 chart simultaneously with "The Gospel" and "Lift You Up." He's adding to that start with brand new music right before he hits the road on a 30-city tour.
The new song is written by Stevenson and producer Bryan Fowler and is based on the scripture in 2 Corinthians 12 verses 9 and 10.

All three songs will be featured on a brand new album releasing this spring.
"Over the course of the last several years, I've continued to ask the Lord to give me songs that exist for a reason," shares Ryan Stevenson about his new single. "As we were working on this new record, a reoccurring theme I felt the Lord continually whisper to my heart was 'beloved identity.' I, like many of us, grew up in the church- a religious environment, where we weren't necessarily nurtured and taught about Gods grace, patience and compassion. As I continue to grow and experience life, the truth I continue to encounter is 'I am His son, no matter what.' It is easy to fall into the trap of performance based relationship with God when we've been taught in religious environments that He's mostly disappointed with us. This song hopefully will encourage all of us that even though we struggle, Jesus is overseeing the process."
