I made a map of my life on my 40th birthday, and remembered in broad strokes the first 20 years of my life, and then the second. Drawn out in a sort of graph, I was amazed that there was rarely just one monolithic line, plummeting and rising, but that in the darker hours, there was almost always a counter-rise – this hard thing was happening, but at the same time, this other (sometimes completely unrelated) wonderful thing was happening. Coming-of-age vulnerability alongside finding genuine, life-giving mentors (and authors), young adult angst alongside finding a voice, marriage joy alongside marriage pain, birth alongside depression, sin and self alongside truly breathtaking revelations of grace, tearing relational missteps alongside burgeoning life-long friendships. You know what I’m talking about because when I go out and sing, you come and tell me about your plummeting and rising, and these songs that mark each turn in the line. Here we have done our best to compile a group of songs to follow that line and 15 years of making music! Thank you for listening – we are profoundly grateful for you!

  • Troy says it best here... I wanted to throw a party for the guys that made this record happen, and tell the story to their family and friends. So amazing (and nerve wracking) to look out and see @charliepeacock# and @banistuci  so fun to see so many friends!  @troybacca @repostapp.
Village Chapel, Nashville. A night to remember. I sat in for a whole SG concert for the first time in 18 years. Beautiful. Great to gather with so many friends this music & our seasons here have cultivated. We thank God for you. #floodplain

  • "I can't even endorse myself!" New Girl In The World video up today... waiting for the bus, thinking about the semantics of endorsement, like you do... #YouTube #linkinbioisfornashvilleconcert
  • Link to tix in bio! The Village Chapel, 7:00p! In support of International Justice Mission #newmusic #onetime #withthebandthatrecordedfloodplain #therewillbenokeytar #truthinadvertising
  • Saturday morning and R is so full of ideas. The day started with, 'mom can you help me write a memoir?' and quickly transitioned to a tea party with Edward Tulane as the guest of honor.  #controlledburntshirt @melolson82 @kate_dicamillo #weloveedward #sheiswritingamemoir
  • We put the wrong time in our E-mail blast!! It is 7:00, NOT 7:30. I will make sure to open with lame songs in case you don't get this note. #sorry #noplacelikehome #picoffortsnelling
  • Inspired by @mythbusters Duct tape Grand Canyon episode, Ruby decided to make a duct tape swing. It is amazingly strong! #sheiswaitingtosurpriseherbrothers #lightsout #silouette #dramaticeffect #itreallyworks!
  • I think the world of this sweet friend! The word 'delightful' always comes to mind... and in an English accent.  @sallylloydjones thank you for sharing your great gifts with us! AND when you get a chance, grab a copy of her new book The Story of God's Love For You!!
  • Nashville! I can't wait to be with you at The Village Chapel playing with the guys who made this record a reality!  #twostoptour #oneofthemishome #playingwithstudiocats #yesrealcats
  • Very soon here I will stop writing promotional instas and get back to pics of my kids wearing swants, and stuff like that.  BUT, I worked hard on this record, and I'm super excited to see it break through to the TOP 10 on iTunes!!!#numberninetobeexact #righttherewithmyfriendkirk #heslosinghisreligion #soundslikeagoodidea
  • #floodplain @themcollective with @repostapp.
“… Floodplain is a profound listening experience… one of the top albums of the year.” Kevin Davis, @newreleasetoday 
Floodplain, the newest music from @grovesroad in nearly five years, is available today!
  • It is also the last day and a half to get 2 SWEET remixes from FLOODPLAIN by DON CHAFFER of Waterdeep fame, and an AUDIO COMMENTRY of Floodplain by @troybacca and myself.  We play good cop/bad cop, but more like melancholy cop/funny cop.  #troyisthefunnycop #floodplain #prerelease #2daysleft
  • Also going away after Thurs, this @scottthepainter designed print. He didn't know this, but I cross my right thumb over my left hand to play the 7th, so when I saw this, I was surprised at how much it resembles my hands. When I think about it, this has been my view of the world for much of my life. 12"x12" poster #floodplain #prerelease #allthosesongstryingtogetout
  • Only 1 1/2 days left to get the pre-release w extras! The official Floodplain T was designed by @scottthepainter and I love it! Last chance before they are gone!
  • Can anyone tell me what kind of tree this is? The bark peels off in strips and the trunk is copper underneath. All the leaves are down, but the look like 🍂
  • The only other stop on my BIG RELEASE tour (it needs a name, if you want to suggest one) is here at HOME! Nov 13! Link in bio! #saragrovesshakesitoff #1972
  • Friends in Nashville, I am playing ONE time live with the guys that helped make FLOODPLAIN a reality at The Village Chapel, WED, NOV 18. Link to tix in bio!

  • I am holding my first physical copy of Floodplain! Very meaningful. They all are, but I haven't been this involved in the full scope of production since Conversations. Thank you @brewbeat @mattmanmusic @dente123 @danpmusic
