After Grace Finds Hope Amidst Heartache with 'It's Okay (Feel This Way)'

NASHVILLE, Tenn.—With a powerful reminder that God is always with us—even in the darkest seasons of life—acclaimed acoustic/pop duo After Grace returns with “It’s Okay (Feel This Way).” Now available on streaming platforms, the poignant ballad was penned by After Grace’s Cody Clark along with Nick Schwarz, and was produced by Los Angeles-based multi-instrumentalist, artist and producer Boy Bennett.
Hallmarked by the duo’s signature harmonies, “It’s Okay (Feel This Way)” acknowledges that pain and heartache are an inevitable part of life, but God promises to never forsake us. Inspired by Clark’s son, who struggled with grief following the loss of his grandfather, the song’s message is universal.
“Dad got sick in 2020, and three weeks later we were at his funeral,” Clark shares. “It was a whirlwind of emotions and faith-shaking reality. My dad was our rock, and he meant the world to all of us, but he and my son were the best of friends and did so much together. Shortly after Dad passed away, my wife and I noticed our son’s behavior had changed. He was six years old at the time, and his joy and happiness started to fade away. He became angry at teachers and other students at school, and he wandered off by himself at recess. When we talked with him about it, he told us that he just missed Pop-Pop.” 
“He's doing better these days, but my son still has moments of grief and tears, so I wrote this song for him,” Clark continues. “I want him to know that no matter what he’s going through, I am always here for him. He doesn't have to face the hardships of this life alone. And not only am I here for him, but God is here for him through it all.”
“'It’s Okay' offers a real and honest message from a very personal place,” adds After Grace’s Jerad Moffitt. “Everyone hurts and sometimes you just want to give up—it’s okay to admit that. It doesn’t make us sinners; it makes us human. God isn’t afraid of our very real and raw emotions, and we must give ourselves permission to face our feelings and confront our heartache.”
“Christ tells us that in life, we will have hardships, but we can take heart because He has overcome the world,” Moffitt says of the ultimate message the song conveys. “God offers the one thing that nothing else in this life can—genuine Hope. His Hope isn’t circumstantial; it’s steadfast and unwavering no matter what life throws our way.”

Brothers-in-law Cody Clark and Jerad Moffitt formed After Grace in their hometown of Mountain Home, Arkansas, in 2013. The duo’s singles include “More Than Ever,” "Roots," “Simple Things,’ “Unseen” and “Forever Home,” the latter depicting Moffitt’s family’s adoption journey. After Grace bowed their debut EP, You Know, in 2019, with the project’s title-cut garnering airplay on Christian radio. They lead worship at various conferences and events around the country and have opened for such artists as TobyMac, Building 429, Colton Dixon, 7eventh Time Down, Sanctus Real, Cochren & Co., and Joel Vaughn, among others.
