Since Mockingbird’s release last December, Webb has had people talking and even making some uncomfortable, by writing and singing about concerns of social justice, poverty, war and politics. Regarding his music and the upcoming chat with his pal Miller for those who aren’t sure how their views line up with Webb’s, all he’s asking is that they give him and Miller a chance. “I’m not trying to push buttons or make people upset,” he says. “I’m just trying to be as honest as I can. Even if people don’t agree, I hope they’ll listen. I just want to get the dialogue started.” Webb, who just finished a tour with Jars of Clay, continues to stay on the road, performing numerous dates with wife Sandra McCracken.

He is a frequent speaker at colleges and conferences across the country, addressing the relevancy of Christian spirituality to explain and heal the dynamics of the human heart. Miller has addressed a wide range of audiences, from students at Harvard University to young men who grew up without fathers, which is the topic of his new book, To Own a Dragon. He desires to turn the momentum from this book into a mentoring and equipping ministry, helping single moms survive the hardship of parenting and providing role models for children without fathers.
