Arden, North Carolina (February 17, 2023) — One of Southern Gospel music’s most compelling voices returns to center stage with Horizon Records’ release of “Down In My Heart,” a new single from Jay Parrack

Tenor singer for Gold City beginning in 1994, Parrack retired from touring in 2004 to continue his service as a music minister in church, making only occasional appearances with his own group, Vocal Event. And though he returned to the road in 2019 with the LeFevre Quartet“Down In My Heart” marks his re-emergence as a solo artist — thanks to producer and multi-instrumentalist Andrew Ishee, who approached him to sing on a multi-artist project in the making. After emerging from the studio, Parrack felt called to release the track, and the power of the performance should serve to convince any listener to give thanks for the decision.

Following an arrangement that echoes the decades-old original recording by Sandi Patty, who wrote the song with Gary Chapman for her 1981 Love OverflowingParrack offers its celebratory message of gratitude and assurance of God’s guidance in his distinctive, instantly recognizable voice:

Down in my heart I feel You holding me
Filling me up with all You are
Right from the start You've kept the soul of me
Guiding me with Your steady arm
When my feet begin to wander
Your help is not too far
'Cause You're right here, down in my heart

Sandi's the best,” says Parrack, “and has always been my favorite. So, when Andrew asked me to pick a song and record something for an idea he had for a project, it had to be something of hers. Andrew did his usual fabulous job on the track, making it easy and a blast to sing!"
