Larry Fleet recently released a divine performance of his single, “Where I Find God,” live from Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium.
Fleet was accompanied by a full gospel choir and strings section for his performance, which made the listening experience all the more special.
“Where I Find God” encompasses the feeling of being lost and eventually finding the light that will guide you out of the dark place.
“From a bar stool, to that Evinrude/Sunday mornin’ in a church pew/ In a deer stand or a hay field/An interstate back to Nashville/ In a Chevrolet with the windows down /me and him just ridin’ around /yeah sometimes…whether I’m lookin’ for him or not /That’s where I find God,” Fleet sings on the chorus.
“Where I Find God” follows the release of Fleet’s debut album, WORKIN’ HARD, which was titled after his journey to get back to music. Fleet once reached a point in his life where being a reliable husband and father came before his dream of being an artist. In doing so, he went from performing on a stage to working construction to better provide for his family.
“To see all these songs come about, and to put the songs together was cool. I’m proud of what I’ve done and what we’ve come up with,” Fleet told Country Now in a previous interview. “People listen to the record, and everybody has there own songs they like. So I feel like that’s a win.”
Luckily, he didn’t stop playing when he had the chance to and this perseverance led him to an encounter with country star Jake Owen in 2017, who guided him back to music.
“He just, kind of, took me under his wing introduced me to a lot of people and helped me out along the way,” Fleet explained. “Here we are, now.”
At this point, with Fleet back in the music game, he is soaring to new heights. “Where I Find God” is being heard by more and more people every day, as it has already, reached 13.5 million+ views. Without a doubt, this hard working man will continue to prosper through whatever hardship life throws at him.
