Emerging Christian artist Cody Towell returns with his sophomore single, “Found On The Road,” a poignant ballad that delves deep into a unique perspective on the parable of the Good Samaritan. Following his debut single, “FINALE,” Cody Towell continues his musical journey with a song that not only captivates the ears but also stirs the soul with its profound message of compassion and redemption.

Drawing inspiration from the biblical account found in Luke 10:25-37, “Found On The Road” offers a fresh perspective, narrating the story from the viewpoint of the beaten man. In this retelling, songwriters Joshua Omolade and Cody Towell skillfully weave together themes of abandonment, rejection, and ultimately, the transformative power of the selfless love Jesus shows and calls us to show. Producer Nick Lewkowski guides the song production with expertise to capture the grief and solace within these lyrics.

The song’s lyrics paint a vivid picture of despair and isolation, as the protagonist finds himself bruised and broken, left to fend for himself on a desolate road. Potentially expecting aid from the religious leaders, then instead met with indifference and abandonment. It is in this moment of darkness that a stranger, hailing from the culture of Samaria which was despised by Jesus’ audience at the time, extends a helping hand, defying societal norms and demonstrating unparalleled compassion. This is what it means to “love your neighbor as yourself.”

Cody Towell incorporates metaphor and imagery throughout the song, inviting listeners to reflect on their own encounters with rejection and hurt, both in the secular world and within the confines of religious institutions. Through intense verses and a haunting chorus, he challenges notions of superficiality and calls for a return to the true essence of the love and compassion of Jesus.

In the chorus, the beaten man poses an emotional question to his unlikely Samaritan savior, echoing the incredulity felt by many when faced with kindness of God amidst a world plagued by selfishness and deceit. Yet, despite the skepticism, the Samaritan’s actions speak louder than words, offering a glimmer of hope in the midst of despair.

As the song progresses, Cody Towell shifts the focus towards Jesus Christ, the ultimate embodiment of compassionate love. Just as the Samaritan sacrificially gave of himself to aid the wounded man, Jesus calls upon his followers to emulate his example, extending love and grace to all, regardless of societal labels or cultural prejudices.

The bridge serves as a powerful reminder of our calling as believers, urging us to “do likewise” in our interactions with others, embodying the radical compassion and selflessness exemplified by Christ himself. In a world plagued by division and strife, “Found On The Road” serves as a beacon of hope, reminding us of the transformative power of God’s sacrificial love and the eternal significance of reaching out to those in need.

Set to release on February 16, 2024, “Found On The Road” promises to leave a lasting impact on listeners, inviting them to embark on a journey of self-reflection, compassion, and ultimately, redemption. With its stirring melody and powerful lyrics, this sophomore single solidifies Cody Towell’s position as a rising force in Christian music, postured to inspire audiences toward knowing God by His word around the globe.
The release of “Found On The Road” will be joined in weeks to come by an evocative music video, meticulously crafted to complement the song’s moving narrative. Featuring a reenactment of the Good Samaritan parable, alongside scenes depicting modern-day rejection and hurt, the video will offer a visually stunning representation of the profound compassion and redemption encountered in Jesus.

Join Cody Towell on this journey through the parable of the Good Samaritan to experience and grasp true love and compassion found only in Jesus. For we are all in need of grace, and called to extend that same grace to others; thus in our own way, “Found On The Road,”
