Root Road Invites Listeners to ‘Come Alive’

Root Road, the upbeat Murfreesboro band with an unashamed Christian message, will release a new single, “Come Alive,” this month. Made up of three brothers, John, Anthony and Nathaniel Gilkes, Root Road aims to entertain its audiences, but says delivering a Spirit-filled message that gets listeners thinking about a spiritual connection with Christ is the higher aim.

The joyfully rocking “Come Alive” sounds twangy, funky and straightforward rock ’n’ roll all at once, with a message reminding others that there is a higher level of happy living than pills or physical love can deliver. The song will be available on Jan. 7 through rootroad.com and on other online outlets shortly after.
