Michael W. Smith: A Life of Music

CVB: At this point in your career, how do you determine now it’s time for the next one? Billy Joel said, “I’m done. I’ve done enough records and they don’t need anymore.” What about you?

Michael W. Smith: Yeah, well I think there’s something coming. I’m creating. I’m writing. If I fall in love with what I’m writing, I think it’s my obligation to share it with the world. But you know, I’ve done a lot of stuff. I’ve been able to do a lot of things. I was able to do the worship thing and the pop thing. I’m scoring films now. I’ve done some Christmas records. So, I don’t want to just go do another record. It has to be an adventure for me a little bit.

CVB: Yeah.

Michael: I want to go reinvent myself and do something crazy – in a good way.
