Addison Road Lives To Fight Another Day
29 March 2010

Just one week into their spring tour, 30-minutes before they were going to the take the stage in Vegas, Addison Road received a disturbing call from their bus driver saying their RV and trailer were up in flames. Within seconds after the driver had pulled off to the side of the deserted road, the entire vehicle erupted in flames destroying all of the band’s sound equipment, instruments and personal belongings. The flames were so powerful that the highway was shut down for multiple hours to control the fire, which had melted the concrete underneath it. Immediately, Addison Road received an outpouring of love and support from churches, friends, family, fans and Christian radio helping the band restore what was lost in the accident. As a result, all of the bands’ needs have been met above and beyond measure, and for that they are truly humbled and grateful.

Addison Road shared this devastating experience with their fans on their website and blogs and soon a flow of prayers, money, clothes and other miscellaneous items began to pour in.

“We are completely blown away by the generosity, love and support we have received from the body of Christ,” said lead singer Jenny Simmons. “Through your financial donations, personal stories, prayers, and reminders of so many beautiful passages of scripture, you have not only met our needs physically but you have been a part of restoring or souls and re-igniting a passion for our ministry as a band. We are incredibly humbled to know that we have played a small part in your lives and overwhelmed with gratitude and joy that you have played a HUGE part in ours.”

“It’s crazy because when we sing our songs, the words we are singing hit home for us,” continues Simmons. “Everything does lie on ‘hope now,’ and there is a new song on our record that really makes us laugh because of how true it stands:

‘And do you feel the fire when the flame gets hot, are you living each day like it’s the last you’ve got, Will you step aside when it all falls down and watch it burn away, Have a little faith when the walls cave in, Pray for strength to fly against the wind, Will you walk away when the fire gets hot, Or fight another day.’

The fact of the matter is, we all have plans whether it’s a plan for tomorrow or for years to come, but God has other plans. When things don’t go as you hope them to, you have two choices: to hang your head low in defeat, or fight it out and get through it because God will get you through. We chose to fight.”

Desiring to be wise stewards, the entirety of the donations have gone directly to: •Cover the unexpected rental cars, hotel fees, and RV maintenance, which preceded and directly followed the fire. •Paying for new band merchandise •Covering the cost of new gear and sound equipment •A new vehicle
