“Bury Me In The Water,” the latest single from Louisiana singer/songwriter Ben Myers, goes for adds today to Christian Country and Christian AC-formatted radio outlets. The single is available across all streaming outlets and digital stores; a lyric video for the new song is available on YouTube.
“This song is an anthem to being a victor through Christ Jesus and clinging to Him in good times and in difficult times,” explains Myers.
“Bury Me In The Water” follows Myers’ single, “Tired,” which took the No. 1 spot on the Christian radio chart when it was first released. That song also earned Myers a spot in the quarterly Top 10 of the CMunited Songwriters Contest.
“Tired” was written in response to Myers and his wife, Marlayna, receiving news that their unborn child had died.
“We both were feeling sorrow and grief,” Myers shares, “and then anger crept in.” Inspired by Marlayna’s strength, Myers says he picked up his guitar and poured his emotion into a song, which turned out to be “Tired.”
“I can look back at the day we lost our unborn child and find peace in knowing that through the struggle, I gained perseverance,” he says. “I want to continue writing songs that point to peace and joy through Jesus.”
