"One of my favorite things about Nashville is that some of my favorite musicians live here," shares Ellie Holcomb. "The music making community in Nashville is a rich one, and sometimes...just sometimes ...you get to collaborate with some of your favorite artists and people to make a project together. I got to write and record an EP of gorgeous songs with Jillian and Ben made them come to life in such a special way. Don't miss these little gems. Our hope is that they'd bring beauty and joy to your daily routine."

"I've always loved the music we make together, and I'm so grateful to finally give these songs a home in The Dailys," states Jillian Edwards. "Every time I've written with Ben and Ellie over the years, I walk away loving what we made together. I'm so happy to share these songs!"
About Ellie Holcomb: Ellie Holcomb, a Nashville native, began her musical career by touring the country with her husband in Drew Holcomb and The Neighbors. After 8 years, and with the birth of their daughter, Ellie opted to step out of the role of heavy touring. From that space came her debut solo album, As Sure As The Sun, which charted at No. 1 on the iTunes Christian chart and helped deem Holcomb the "Best New Artist" at the 2014 Dove Awards. In 2017, she released Red Sea Road (Full Heart Music), which debuted at No. 3 on the Billboard Christian Album sales chart and on the Top Current Album Sales, overall chart. In 2018, she became a best-selling author with the release of Who Sang the First Song? (B&H Publishing Group) and Dove-nominated EP, Sing: Creation Songs. She followed-up those projects with Don't Forget To Remember (B&H Kids), and accompanying EP, Sing: Remembering Songs, which won the 2020 GMA Dove Award for "Children's Album of the Year." Ellie and her her husband, Drew, have entertained their fans through this year's pandemic first bringing song covers from their kitchen night after night with their "Kitchen Covers," and as well as being the face of a special Tennessee Tourism campaign featuring their family with four episodes.
