She had heard the words of Rascal Flatts 2001 hit “I’m Movin’ On” at least a thousand times, but never did they lift her up as much as they did when her world started falling down.
Arkansas native Jessica Wolverton has always been an avid fan of country music and entered a contest last year sponsored by the ACM Awards and Justin Boots to tell her story about a song that changed her life. “For several years, we had wanted children and fertility options weren’t working for us,” she said in the promotional video. “I prayed asking God what to do, because we were running out of options.”
Those prayers led her to look deeper into the possibility of adoption. And through the journey, the Rascal Flatts song continued to run through her head. “I just want to tell them thanks for the song,” the contest winner told a video crew as the members of Rascal Flatts began to sneak their way into the room she was in. “It’s amazing how a few minutes of words in a song can really show we all relate to one another.”
It was then that Wolverton turned around and saw the three men that initially put the words of “I’m Movin’ On” into her heart, forever.
