Wow, what a week. BarlowGirl has just made the announcement that the Lord is leading them into new things and BarlowGirl is retiring as a band, check out the announcement they made on their website:
To our amazing friends and fans,
This has truly been an interesting year for the three of us. We have spent most of the last three years writing songs and searching for inspiration. As a part of that season, we’ve also been seeking direction and a new plan for what God has for our lives. In the midst of this journey our songwriting times turned less and less into songwriting and more and more into God speaking to us about His new plans for us. And the outcome is that God is gently leading us in a new direction. The three of us really feel, and all agree, that the Lord is leading us to make a huge change in our lives and we want you to be the first to know about it.
After much prayer and counsel we have decided that we are retiring the band BarlowGirl. We don’t know what God has in store for us…He hasn’t revealed that yet. But in all this we know — He is guiding us to move forward in our destinies and He is faithful no matter what! We are so excited for this new season because we serve an amazing God.
We want to thank you all for your support over the last 10 years. We are truly grateful for this part of our journey with you. We are not sure where our path will lead from here but these last 10 years have been sweet ones that we will never forget. Thank you all for being a huge part of our lives. We will miss you all.
We have decided that our final appearance as BarlowGirl needs to be shared with all of you! So we would love for you to be part of our last live web chat. We will be playing some songs acoustically and want you to conduct our final interview. We would love for you to join us!
Alyssa, Becca, & Lauren
