“Get ready to know the name Caitie Hurst. We debuted her new tune ‘How Could I Be Silent’ yesterday afternoon, and I got multiple listeners calling in to request her…BY NAME! They actually wrote down her name when the song played the first time and have called today to request it. Not bad for someone they’d never heard of 24-hours ago.” Kenny Fowler, WBHY Mobile, AL
“It’s Taylor Swift meets Lauren Daigle.” David A. Dein, WAWZ Star 99.1, NY
The song not only offers audiences a catchy melody, but a relatable message born out of Hurst’s own testimony. “How can we be quiet about the way God has changed our lives?,” Caitie said about the single’s inspiration. “This is my life story in a song. I was saved at a really young age, but I was never one to go share with other people what God had done in my life, for fear of what they might think about me. As I grew up and walked with the Lord, I started to realize after all that He has done for me, there’s no way I can be silent about that. My hope is that as you hear this song you are encouraged to share your faith and the Gospel and to not be bound by the fear of what other people might think of you.”
