Nashville, TN (February 19, 2021)
Christian music artist and songwriter John Waller has released his first new radio single in over two years, “But God.” The song is also at retail and streaming outlets globally now, and is the title track from Waller’s sixth full-length studio album set to release from Radiate Music this spring.
Inspired by scriptures like 1 Corinthians 1:27, and written for a season that has been difficult for Waller and plunged so many people around the world into a spiral of hopelessness, “But God” is a declarative anthem of hope.

“The story of ‘But God’ is all of our stories in the past year,” perceives Waller. “There is so many moments in Scripture where there was trouble, persecution and where things seemed hopeless. And then there is that ‘But God’ moment. The biggest one was God demonstrating His own love by sending his Son.
“I think this song is going to encourage a lot of people,” continues Waller. “I know when I listen to it and sing it, it brings hope, light, life. We may see darkness and chaos, but God sees new beginnings. I pray that this song will do that for you and for anyone who hears it.”
But God is my fortress
I will not be shaken
Though I’m surrounded
I won’t be forsaken
God is my shield and
Praise is my weapon
In the face of impossible odds
I will say “But God!”
(“But God” chorus)
Known for such inspiring hit singles as “Crazy Faith” (featured in the hit box office film War Room), “While I’m Waiting” (featured in 2008’s No.1 independent film Fireproof), “As For Me and My House,” “Awakening (aka The Coffee Song)” and many more, Waller has continually used his gifts as a singer and songwriter to inspire, educate and encourage the body of Christ.
