Worship leader and songwriter Cody Carnes has released a brand new song “Nothing Else”. Cody performed the single live at Passion 2019, where nearly 40,000 young adults from across the globe filled arenas in Atlanta, Dallas and Washington, D.C.
‘Nothing Else’ is a song about returning back to what really matters,” explains Cody Carnes. “It came out of a moment last year when I realised my heart had wandered into prioritising God’s hand more than His heart. I was becoming too concerned with what I was getting from Him, and disappointed when things didn’t go the way I thought they should. I don’t want my heart postured toward God that way. The week I had that revelation,this song was written. It’s already been a gift that has refuelled, refreshed and reset my heart.”
Cody Carnes, a well-respected worship leader and songwriter, released his debut album, The Darker The Night / The Brighter The Morning, in 2017. He has also co-written many songs with his wife Kari Jobe such as “Let the Heavens Open” from her Dove Award winning album Majestic and eight tracks off of her release, GMA Dove Award nominated, The Garden. The couple also released the well-received single, “Cover The Earth” last year. He will be on tour with Elevation Worship on the “Hallelujah Here Below” tour beginning in March.
Cody lives in Nashville, Tennessee with his wife and their toddler boy Canyon and they are expecting their second son early this year.
