Grammy Award-nominated rock band NEEDTOBREATHE just released their brand new single “I Wanna Remember.” The single features one of country music’s favorite stars, Carrie Underwood. The song is about realizing you’re in one of those moments you’re going to want to remember forever. During the song Carrie and the band sing, “The night is clear. All of the stars out in the atmosphere. Wishing that they were you and me right here. They’re showing off for us, I don’t wanna forget it.”

What’s the Story Behind Carrie Underwood’s ‘I Wanna Remember’

This isn’t the first time Carrie Underwood and NEEDTOBREATHE have collaborated. In fact, during a recent interview, Carrie and the band talked about why they felt they were a perfect match for “I Wanna Remember.”

“’I Wanna Remember’ is a nostalgic track and takes you back to the moments you never want to forget. We all came from small towns. And those roots have cemented into the fabric of the band and our music,” said NEEDTOBREATHE band members. “Bear worked with Carrie on some of her recent projects, and we felt like her small-town roots and humble beginnings were the perfect addition to this song.”

And they weren’t wrong. The band added that they felt the connection as soon as they started recording the song with Carrie.

“As soon as we got into the studio, we felt a connection with her. As if she was a long-time member of the band,” said a band member. “Having someone with her talent and spirit sing on the song is an absolute honor for us.”

And the feelings were mutual. Carrie Underwood said that she has followed the band for a while and was honored to be a part of the song.

“I have been a huge fan of NEEDTOBREATHE forever. And I was so honored when the stars aligned and Bear agreed to lend his incredible vocals to a song on my recent gospel album,” said Underwood. “Needless to say, I was thrilled when he and the band invited me to be a part of their new project. I love the song and have had the best time getting to know and sing with these amazingly talented guys.”
