Matt Stell tells the website Entertainment Focus how his hit song ‘Prayed For You’ came to be. “I wrote that song with two of my best friends in music Ash Bowers and Allison Veltz. Ash and I were in the office and Allison was running a little bit behind but she called ahead to let us know that she had an idea. She came into the office and she said, ‘I just met this guy’ (who is now her husband) and she said, ‘the title just came to her and it was bigger than I could fathom, I didn’t know you from Adam but I prayed for you.’ We started writing at that title and we worked on it two separate days and came out with a song. That was the genesis of it.”

It truly is … and Caroline is in the midst of it every day, and she’s jockeying, and her sister helps and our nanny. It’s kind of a village. But it challenges you every day and you learn and learn. You try to get through it every day.”
