"There Will Be One Day," the second radio single release from So I Can Tell, the latest CD by Dove Award winning recording artist and speaker Cheri Keaggy, is going for adds today at Inspirational-formatted Christian radio stations.
"We are expecting good things from 'There Will Be One Day,'" says Jeff McLaughlin, president of A-Sides Radio Promotion. "The first single, the title cut from So I Can Tell, made an impressive showing, with charting activity on both Christian Music Weekly's INSPO chart and Billboard's Soft AC/Inspirational chart, as well as being added to Billboard's Soft AC/Inspirational New and Active chart. The momentum with Cheri's new music has already started and we are expecting a continued building with this new single."

"'There Will Be One Day' was written after 2010, a significant year of grief and loss for me," Keaggy says. "My grandmother passed away about a week before my son's wedding, and my grandfather died two months after that. We had to sell the home we'd lived in for over a decade and I had to let go of my childhood piano. The hardest part of all of it was that the marriage I had invested my heart and soul in for 22 years was ending in divorce. I know what it is to suffer loss. But, I also know what it is to experience God's comfort and peace when everything's unraveling. In times of grief, we cling to the hope of Heaven. Our hearts long to be rejoined with our loved ones. We long for a place where nothing hurts and everything is made right."

Many of Keaggy's longtime friends joined her during the recording of the song, she says, adding that the session turned into a worship experience. Under the guidance of Gospel Music Hall of Famer and legendary guitarist Phil Keaggy, "There Will Be One Day" was produced by Scott Dente and Ken Lewis of Global Genius Productions (Amy Grant, Michael Card, Chris Rice, Cindy Morgan, Sarah Hart, Sara Groves).
"When I heard the final mix, I remember dancing around my kitchen with my arms raised high, rejoicing and crying and praising God for all He had done and all He had brought me through," she says. "It was one of the most intense worship times I've ever experienced! And I knew then and there that God would not waste my sorrows, and many believers would sing 'There Will Be One Day' like an anthem and take hope in the Lord."
So I Can Tell is Keaggy's first CD since her independent 2007 release, Because He First Loved Us. Keaggy draws on the encouragement of Scripture and her utter reliance on the comforting power of God to create an honest, engaging recording that is reflective of her emergence from a difficult season in life.

"When God has brought you through something, when He's shown up in God-sized ways, you can't help but testify," says Keaggy of the new songs. "This is my 'beauty from ashes' project."

So I Can Tell was released on the 18-year anniversary of Keaggy's 1994 Sparrow Records release, Child of the Father.
