Music Led By
Caitie Hurst is a graduate of Liberty University, with a degree in worship-leading. After graduation, she found herself interning at a Nashville-based Christian music label, where she felt led to create and share Christian music as an artist. Hurst’s songs and worship-leading resulted in recording and publishing deals with Centricity Music. Since then, she’s continued to create songs with magnetic melodies and rhythm that come from the journeys she’s walked and how she’s found Christ in all of them. Anxiety; jealousy; insecurity; fear. Journeys all of us can relate to, but too often are afraid to speak about.
