The band Carried Away never really caught on here in the states, but they certainly had some talent. In Canada, the band had a different bit of success, with one track, winning song of the year in Canada’s Covenant Awards. While they did not have a ton of songs that would blow anyone away, they had a good sound.
This song, ‘Be Exalted,’ is a good soft rock song that has a very worshipful tone to it. This is simply a track of praise, tune number 5 from their debut album, Closer to you. The song lyrics return repeatedly to ask for God’s blessing on each part of their lives, from their heart, their homes, and their lives. The aim for the track is simply to put the focus back on God. The band is no longer together, but I still return to listen to this track every few months.
So from my music collection, hopefully now to yours, enjoy! – Timothy
