“I am so proud of this record,” Troy Sneed says. “I put everything into it. I didn’t want people to just hear the radio singles. I wanted my fans to be nudged into listening to the whole album because I really worked to make every song a statement and I stretched myself vocally and in terms of the style of the music. I think a lot of people will be surprised.”
The new CD features urban-flavored songs of praise and worship ranging from the jazzy “Song for You” to “I Know You Hear Me,” recalling R. Kelly’s “U Saved Me.” The `70s soul groove “All is Well” peaked at #14 on Billboard’s Hot Gospel Songs chart, but “Lay it Down” is destined to go all the way to the Top Ten like Sneed’s past hits: “My Heart Says Yes,” “Work it Out,” “Hallelujah,” and “The Struggle is Over,” which spent several weeks at #1 on Billboard’s Hot Gospel Songs chart.
“Lay it Down” has an inspiring message of “laying down” life’s problems and a steady Caribbean drum pattern with Sneed’s spine-tingling high notes for an infectious sing-a-long track.
