Larry Fleet Tells The Story Behind His Smash Hit “Where I Find God”

A few weeks ago we here at Whiskey Riff took a little trip to Greenville, South Carolina for the Greenville Country Music Fest.

While we were there I had the privilege of conducting an interview larry fleet, and talk about everything from his music, like his latest album studio album stack of records, Collaborations he’s done, what he does in his free time off the road and more.

Many of us got used to Fleet when he released his single “Where I Find God” in early 2020, just as COVID-19 was first hitting the United States.

Needless to say, the song was a great opportunity to reflect on the simple and meaningful things in life in a brand new world where there was such uncertainty about the future.

So I had to ask him how he came up with the idea for the song and how it was phrased at just the right time during one of the most difficult times many of us have experienced in our lives.

He has answered:

“Yeah, it wasn’t even my idea, I did something called Sunday Gospel Song. It was just a thing I did on Instagram, something like that, and Connie Harrington, she texted me and said, “Hey, I have an idea, see if you want to write it,” and that was it , before I got a record deal, I really didn’t have anything going on at the time.

So I walked over to her and she said, ‘I have an idea, that’s where I find God’, and so we started talking about hunting, you know, driving down the road, all the places where I talk to God and we put it all together and I loved the song thought it was a good song but people put it on hold and it had a lot of different lives that it would lead and then I got a record deal with Big Loud.

So then I recorded it and they put it on hold for a while and that was before COVID happened, I didn’t even know it was going on but I probably had a plan in January like putting it out on Good Friday let’s wipe it out and just see what happens. I just wanted it to go out.

So you have to go through this process for months trying to get it up and running and we did it and it just hit the spot when COVID hit. I didn’t really plan it that way, it just happened that way.”
