Brooks and Dunn Wants Us to “Believe”


There is more to life than what we have and what we see. We may have everything, but there are far more important things that we should keep in mind. It is certain that life can be pleasant and beautiful when we have a strong faith in God. Having a sturdy knowledge and belief in Him will make our life easier despite all the hardships and losses. This statement has already been seen in movies that we have watched and the stories that we have heard. In addition, even songwriters love to write something that discusses faith, and one of these songs came from the country duo Brooks and Dunn.

Brooks and Dunn’s “Believe”

In 2005, Brooks and Dunn released their single “Believe.” Many listeners appreciate the message of the song, which led the single to score a spot on the Country Billboard chart. Furthermore, their song landed a position on the Billboard Hot 100 too. The following year, they were able to bring home three awards from the CMA’s (Single of the Year, Song of the Year, and Music Video of the Year).

The Message of the Song

What makes this song so appealing to the public is the subtle message of faith and life. The single begins with a young boy visiting his poor, old neighbor, and in his daily visit, they become friends. As he gets to know the old man, he learned many things about him, but what struck him the most was how he holds on to his faith in God despite losing everyone he loved.

Said, “I raise my hands
Bow my head
I’m findin’ more and more truth
In the words written in red
They tell me that there’s more to life
Than just what I can see, I believe”

Maybe that’s one thing we should learn from the old man. We have to believe in God even if we are struggling. We have to stay strong and know that there is more to life than what we have and what we see. What an inspiring song indeed! No doubt it’s loved by many.

Jennifer Hudson’s and Kane Brown’s Recording

There are two great renditions of this song. One is from the R&B singer Jennifer Hudson, and a revamp by Kane Brown. Hudson came across the song when she had to perform on Brooks and Dunn’s farewell concert. She fell in love with it and decided to include it on her album I Remember Me. Meanwhile, Brown was invited by the duo to record the song for their 2019 album Reboot. Brown amazed the duo with his cover.

“His records are one thing, but when you plug someone into a song like that, I think (Ronnie and I) both just kind of looked at each other when he starting singing and went, ‘Wow, this is going to be good.'”
