'Roots' Inspiring Single From Joe Richard

Listen to Joe Richard’s inspiring single, ‘Roots.’


Although he only recently joined the gospel music community, Joe Richard grew up surrounded by instruments and music. His dad had a country band that would practice at their house, and little 5-year-old Joe hopped right on up to the drumset to give it a try. For his next birthday, Joe got a drum set of his own.

He played and sang with a bunch of different bands, and his group, ‘The Ramblin Band,’ eventually opened for some well-known bands like Charlie Daniels and David Allan Co. Unfortunately, his musical success led him down a path to drugs and alcohol. Without direction, Joe filled his emptiness with sin instead of God’s love.

After watching his wife’s uncle get baptized in a river and witnessing how His grace can save, Joe and his wife both decided to give themselves to God and got baptized in that same river. Since then, Joe has devoted his musical talent to the Lord and created inspiring Christian music.

In his song, ‘Roots,’ Joe describes the downfall of a man with no faith that finally finds God’s grace. The story is very similar to his own and can relate to so many people that may have lost their faith or were never shown the way.

The music video perfectly shows the unbelievable power of redemption in just one person’s life. You’ll feel like you’re the man in the video, experiencing the relief of giving himself to God. No matter how many times you witness God’s miracles, His greatness never fades.

Thank you, God, for reaching out to those that are struggling and showing them the way home. We are forever grateful for your grace.

For the grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men, Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world; Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Savior Jesus Christ. Titus 2:11-13
