"Bless the Broken Road" was written in 1993 and recorded three times prior to the Flatts: by co-writer Marcus Hummon on his 1995 Sony album, All in Good Time; by Melodie Crittenden, who released it as a single and music video on Asylum Records in 1997; and by Christian group Geoff Moore & the Distance.
