Singer-songwriter Kelly Lang’s song, “I’m Not Going Anywhere” has been seen and heard across the United States as part of Ascension Hospital’s ‘Your Care Is Our Calling’ campaign, honoring caregivers and the patients they serve. As a result of the campaign and at the requests of fans around the world, Lang has re-recorded “I’m Not Going Anywhere” and is releasing a deluxe EP, which includes a piano version, an orchestrated version, a story behind the song as well as a music video, available today. Resonating positivity in the hearts of every listener, “I’m Not Going Anywhere” offers hope and strength, often being compared to Debbie Boone’s, “You Light Up My Life.” As part of a special exclusive world premiere, Newsmax debuted a portion of the music video on American Agenda with Heather Childers and Bob Sellers yesterday.

“What an honor it is to receive such kind messages from so many people about my song,” shares Lang. “It is very humbling to hear how my words and music have touched the hearts of those in need of comfort. As a songwriter, I hope this is also an encouragement to others who write songs to never give up on their musical dreams. This song was written 16 years ago, and only now being heard so widespread.”
Lang was inspired to write the song in 2004 as she watched a close friend manage a loved one’s illness. Three months later, she was diagnosed with stage two breast cancer and began a journey of her own at Ascension Saint Thomas Midtown Hospital in Nashville, Tennessee. In remission since 2005, Kelly has said that she hopes her voice can echo beacons of light and encourage patients with cancer to continue fighting. “I’m Not Going Anywhere” has been recorded by country legends T.G. Sheppard and Crystal Gayle, featured in Burt Reynolds’ movie, The Deal, and was included on Lang’s album 11:11, but never released as a single. In 2019, a portion of the song was picked up for a regional campaign in Nashville and surrounding markets by Ascension Saint Thomas Hospital. After an overwhelmingly positive reaction from the area, it is now being used in television and radio commercials across the country, soaring Lang’s popularity to new heights.
