The Mountain, by Dave Carter and Tracy Grammer

Dave Carter passed away eight years ago today (July 19, 2002), at the age of 50. I first heard the news the following day, at WXPN’s weekend concert series, the All About the Music Festival. (Now they call it the XPoNential Music Festival, which just took place this past weekend…) Dave had performed at this festival exactly one year before.

One of the most moving moments of that concert, was when they brought out John Flynn who had stayed up the entire prior night learning this song so he could perform it in Dave’s memory.
