“Bread and Water,” written by Vince Gill and Leslie Satcher, captures a moving message about the power of faith and holds a deep meaning to the veteran Opry legend. The single is available on Conlee’s latest project Classics 2, available for purchase here.
“It hit me right in the heart the first time I heard it. It is a story of redemption and a reminder that with God, all things are possible,” Conlee said.
“Bread and Water” chorus:
Bread and water, man that’s all you need
Bread and water, brother just believe
If you ain’t too proud to get down on your knees
The bread and water’s free
Bread and water’s free
Conlee continues his long-standing relationship between faith and the country music industry. “Out of concerns for today’s America it has affected the way I’m applying my musical energies. I believe in prayer and I feel like now more than ever is the time to be singing about it and hopefully inspiring others to do the same,” Conlee said.
The 2015 release from his own Rose Colored Records includes new material along with Conlee’s hits. Classics 2 features standards that haven’t been available for purchase since Columbia and 16th Avenue Records originally released the records, including “Harmony,” “Mama’s Rockin’ Chair” and “Hit The Ground Runnin.”
