My friend and Grammy award-winning, country music songwriter and producer, Frank Myers (FJM Productions) is set to release his new original song, “God’s Got This,” in late-August. Co-written with Richie McDonald (Lonestar) and produced alongside Jimmy Nichols, the track will be available Friday, August 28, 2020 via all major digital retail and streaming outlets. While Myers is most widely recognized as a hit songwriter with a list of industry accolades and as an award-winning producer he stepped behind the microphone in faith to record and deliver the timely and pensive single “God’s Got This.”  “I was going through some personal things in my life and I realized I was powerless in the situation. I just sat back, closed my eyes, and the words ‘God’s Got This’ came to me,” said Myers.  “…and now, in listening to the media, reading posts with frantic reactions to current events, my heart felt burdened. I wanted to share this message of faith. I hope the message offers anyone listening, a renewal of faith to believe that no matter the struggle, HE is right here with us.” More at
