another national tour, three of the band members abruptly stepped down, leaving Garrett
Hornbuckle completely blindsided. What Hornbuckle learned was that although the stage
offered a platform to amplify God’s goodness, it also offered a platform to amplify his
insecurities. His identity was dictated by fame, and the way he lead his band became less about
God’s kingdom, and more about his own.
The sudden dissolution of the group was staggering, and although Hornbuckle wanted to rid
himself of all things music, he’d made commitments he had to keep. The next year was
humbling and metamorphic, and it changed the trajectory of his life. All Things New dissolved as
a band and transformed into a ministry.
Now, years later with a supportive wife and a newborn daughter by his side (and all three former
band members rooting him on), Hornbuckle’s investment is in proclaiming the gospel across the
nation. He leads worship at various churches, encourages and coaches worship teams, and
reminds everyone he can that there’s newness in Christ. When he isn’t singing for a
congregation, he’s writing music with a new outlook—to build the only Kingdom that matters.
