It's about a time of crisis, yes, but the song is also about possibilities and that's a good thing

Before 9/11, before the US-led invasion of Iraq, before the North Korea nuclear threat and the latest crisis in the Middle East; in fact, even before start of the millennium, writer Carrie Criado pondered the future.

"With technology, it could go either way. We could help each other out or all end up at war,” said Criado.

Criado penciled her thoughts on paper. She then teamed up with good friend, Nashville singer/songwriter Judy Wright and together they collaborated on ‘21st Century.’ It is a haunting song about conflict and uncertainty and yet the ray of promise that resides in children.

"I was moved by Carrie's words," said Wright, “and knew I could find just the right sound to capture and deliver the message."

Wright cut ‘21st Century’ as a demo, performed it live at her shows and went around pitching it to record labels, but back in 1999, the song didn't seem to click.

Seven years later, Wright has decided to release ‘21st Century’ as her latest single because she believes it will strike a chord today. The song is available as a free download through her web site at http://www.judywright.com.

"It's about a time of crisis, yes, but the song is also about possibilities and that's a good thing," said Wright.

Now living in Texas, Criado says she's just like many who are trying to make sense of all the events happening in the world.

"Watching the news can be a little overwhelming at times. I hope the song will bring people comfort in the days ahead," said Criado.
