The Singing Contractors: From working on houses to viral mega hits

Monday 6th May 2019

Tony Cummings talked to Indianapolis-based country music duo THE SINGING CONTRACTORS

Continued from page 2

Tony: Presumably you're talking about very well-known songs.

Aaron: "Yes. At some point we're hoping to write some of our own songs. We wrote some songs, but they always end up talking about a pickup truck or a bale of hay or something, and they somehow don't rhyme that well."

Tony: Now that an album is out there, won't there be pressure on you to do a big tour and give up the day job?

Aaron: "It has already been busy. A week ago we got to go back to New York and be on Fox & Friends again. It was a really awesome time, but it's been hard juggling both worlds. We don't know what God has planned. It would be nice to sing a little more than we swing the hammer. I don't know."

Tony: Is the overall reason for what you're doing a spiritual one?

Josh: "Absolutely. We want to make sure that we live what we're singing about, that we are completely his and he is ours. We want that to show through our songs. That's the most important thing to us. All the fame or success - or what people think success is - doesn't matter to us. What matters to us is that we can go round and sing the songs of our Saviour to people who are struggling in this world. We need each other, and we need Jesus in our lives too."

Aaron: "We've made a pact between ourselves: no matter what platform we get on, if at all possible we are going to uplift the name of Jesus. If we can't, at least they'll be able to go to our website or the Facebook, and they're going to hear the good news there. We're just doing what we can to uplift the name of Jesus." CR
