Wednesday, April 27 and Thursday, April 28, 2011

We knew her from her song "Indescribable," recorded by Chris Tomlin, but on Wednesday, we got to sit down with Laura Story and really get to know what this artist is about: great lyrics and gaffers tape!

LISTEN   Carmen and Laura made an immediate connection over fashion--overalls and wardrobe malfunctions.

LISTEN   Laura was nominated for "Female Vocalist of the Year," along with Natalie Grant, Francesca Battistelli (winner), Britt Nicole, and Kerrie Roberts. Together, they did a tribute to Sandi Patty... and Laura had another wardrobe malfunction!

LISTEN   She played on Chris Tomlin's version of "Indescribable," and didn't even know it!

LISTEN   Her story of walking through a brain tumor with her husband, Martin, was the inspiration for the song, "Blessings"

HEAR   Listen to and/or purchase "Blessings."
