Question of the Week: Nick Trammell

Last Friday, I reviewed the Browns’ new CD, Now. I offered high praise for “My Child is Coming Home,” calling it the “best song the Browns have recorded to date.” I was trading emails with Browns member Nick Trammell, who co-wrote the song with his father, Mark Trammell, before the review went up. He shared the following about the song:

Nick: I wrote it after hearing the story of Tony Greene’s passing. I heard he had friends and family around his bedside preparing to say goodbye, and singing him in to Heaven.

When I thought about that, I started thinking about what was going on those same few moments in Heaven preparing for him to come home. I get chills every time I hear the song and think about it.

Just a little something to visualize about next time you listen to it!

DJM: Thank you, Nick! 

It is not often that I say this, but this is one of the year’s absolute must-buy songs. You can find it individually on iTunes and eMusic, and the whole CD on the Browns’ website.

  1. You didn’t mention the song title, but from the description I figured out you were talking about “My Child Is Coming Home.” I’ve ordered the CD based on what you said in your review last week and I can hardly wait to hear the song.

    • I didn’t ask but I figured it must be “Now.” Seriously!

      Hey Daniel, don’t know if anybody else has mentioned it yet, but the gray in the comment box as we’re typing them is pretty light …

      • Yes, someone mentioned it, and yes, it is.

        The whole theme had pretty light text originally, and I made everything darker prior to launch, since I knew that would be one of the things people would be sure to bring up!

  2. Oops! Thanks, and fixed!
