'Steady', a new single from Natural State, a Chattanooga, Tennessee-based band, is available today at all digital outlets. A radio release is set for April.
Haley Morgan, Dell Sartin and Keith Everette Smith wrote the single. Smith, a multiple Grammy Award winner, who is married to Christian singer/songwriter Tasha Layton and part of TobyMac’s Diverse City Band, also produced the single.
“We are so excited for you to hear the truths in this song! After a year like 2020, we all need to be reminded that God is faithful and always remains steady,” the band says.
Though the single is the first under the Natural State moniker, the group, formerly called Landers Music Co., has toured and released music for several years.
“God did some awesome things through LMC and we are grateful for how He used it,” the band members have said.
“The new name, Natural State, evokes so much meaning spiritually to us,” says Haley Morgan, lead vocalist. “There is a void inside us all that calls out for our Creator. There’s a need that we are met with at some point in life that longs for a Savior. There is a purpose for each of us here on this earth to be lived out and fulfilled. This is how we were created from the beginning. To know and love God. To love and serve others. That is the state that God wants us to live in with Him, our original, natural state." Haley explains, “It doesn’t always come naturally for us to love God with all of our heart. But I desire for our music to authentically point people to Jesus, our Hope.”
While making music as Landers Music Co., the band toured with Colton Dixon, Manic Drive, and Tru Serva. In 2020, under the name Natural State, the group was set to tour with Colton Dixon, Manic Drive and Citizen Way. The tour was canceled due to Covid-19 however.
In 2019, Landers Music Co. released a single titled “Walls,” which debuted at No. 1 at CRC Weekly. The single also hit No. 4 at CRC Monthly, No. 5 at CRC Quarterly and No 9 at CRC Yearly.
