Almost everyone has heard this song somewhere, sometime playing on the radio. What you may not know is this song was written and recorded by Mississippi musicians. this song was something of a new trend in music for '60s artists combining strings & horns. Featuring David Huff on lead guitar and vocals, Rayborn Huff on keyboard, Clayborn Huff on bass guitar and Keith Thibodaux (little Ricky on the I Love Lucy Show) on drums. The Giants transitioned into Christian rock-praise music by 1977 and eventually released 17 albums receiving a Dove Award nomination along the way. David Huff still performs and has released 5 solo albums. These artists are remarkable musicians and among Mississippi's most accomplished music artists and the groups complete story is featured on the Mississipp Music website. Today David operates a recording studio near Atlanta and the group still comes together occasionally to perform. Their music is a real experience you don't want to miss.
