God Is My Song (11-track album)

Kevin Ray Nichols

Kevin Ray Nichols' sophomore album is appropriately titled, “God Is My Song.” This album is full of songs Kevin's heart needed to hear right now. His heart poured out songs he didn’t think were there. The original title idea was going to be “A Joyful Noise,” but it came to pass that many of these songs are more worshipful in the Christian Contemporary vein and express some hurt, struggles, and imperfectness; which point to God who is the Healer, Comforter, and Perfect in all His ways. So the joyfulness comes in knowing God is holding Kevin Ray Nichols - AND YOU - close everyday in every time. That’s when Kevin Ray realized that “God is my strength and my song” (Psalm 118:14). Features 10 original songs including the piano-triumphant "Triumph & Tragedy" and also including a fresh, rugged acoustic cover of "Old Rugged Cross."

Dreams Come True (6-track EP)

Kevin Ray Nichols

There's a little bit of everything in Kevin Ray's debut album, “Dreams Come True.” Kevin Ray found a way to infuse several genres into one; from straight praise anthems like the award-winning "Baptize Me," highlighting the excitement to follow Jesus' command to be baptized, to Stevie Ray Vaughan-inspired blues sounds in "Restored," while also bringing out his 80's and 90's Rock roots in the title-song, “Dreams Come True,” trumpeting a tribute to his wife of 20+ years, all while keeping a Christian core lyrically looking Heavenward throughout the rest of the album.

This album also tells a story from top to bottom; from his “beginnings” making music with his brother, seeing “Dreams Come True” in his marriage and seeing the miracle of birth in his daughters, to being “Restored” by God and being “Baptized” in the East China sea--on fire for the Lord in 2007. KRN now looks toward the future, when one day the “Train Goin’ Home” will carry him through the "Rapture" on his way to Heaven.

The Greatest Gift of All

Kevin Ray Nichols

Written out of love for the popular phrase, "reason for the season" and hits home the "why" we celebrate Christmas. This song is thought-provoking, if not a duress call, to beg the question, "have you received the Greatest Gift of All"...the eternal gift of Jesus Christ. Born of the virgin Mary, this baby boy, lying in a manger, was God-incarnate, who was sent to Earth for one purpose; to save humanity from their sins (Luke 2:8-12; Matthew 1:21-23). The song tells a story of a little boy of a large family who didn't have much...until he realized what he could have in Jesus, if he just believe (John 3:16).

All Came Clear (single)

Kevin Ray Nichols

"All Came Clear" is Kevin Ray Nichols' testimony; his salvation story. While at rock bottom with marriage, career, alcohol and sin, it finally "all came clear."
This song is a cry from a broken life to redemption...a lost soul to one that is found in Jesus Christ...a personal testimony of the artist. "All Came Clear" is the third released single from Kevin Ray Nichols' upcoming album, "God Is My Song" which attempts to shine God's perfect light into an imperfect world and people.

Triumph & Tragedy

Kevin Ray Nichols

2017 was a rough year for many who were directly affected by the tragedies that struck throughout the year, as well as for all of us who mourned and prayed for them. 2018 hasn't started off well either. The shootings, hurricanes, typhoons, wildfires, earthquakes left many dead, injured and asking the universe, "why did this have to happen?"

"Triumph and Tragedy" was written out of this hard-to-swallow pill that God is still God even in the midst of tragic loss. Job in the Bible took tragedy a little easier than most of us could after losing everything. He "fell on the ground and worshiped." And he said, “Naked I came from my mother's womb, and naked shall I return. The Lord gave, and the Lord has taken away; blessed be the name of the Lord (Job 1:20-22)."

Old Rugged Cross

Kevin Ray Nichols

Many artists from Crowder to Alabama have done their versions of "Old Rugged Cross" as well. It's a popular hymn with powerful lyrics. The hymn points straight to the cross as our strength in times of struggle, which perfectly fit with the theme of my album. I love when inspiration hits me through singing God's music back to Him in worship.

I hope you enjoy this version of "The Old Rugged Cross." I hope it inspires you like it has me to "cling to the old rugged cross" until we one day, "exchange it for a crown."
