"Hearts Wide Open" was the First-Place Christian Category Winner in the 2016 Dallas Songwriters Association Songwriting Competition.

"A real John Prine feel to the lyric writing in this song. 'From the dogs at addiction that tug at our sleeves….' This is a great line along with so many others in this song. '…laying our pride at the foot of the cross' is another one. Very strong. Could be the best set of lyrics in this entire competition. This is thoughtful, unique and exceptional lyric writing." - Dallas Songwriters Association Grand Prize Judge, Roy Elkins
