About Bethany Dillon
The cover of the August 2005 issue of CCM magazine called Dillon "the future of Christian music." Before that, she was dubbed "the next Amy Grant" based on her soft folk debut. Her accomplishments began to fulfill these predictions of grandeur when her impossibly inspiring song "Dreamer" became the theme song for the 2005 hit movie of the same title (starring Kurt Russell and Dakota Fanning). Why all the fuss? The songs that started the phenomenon were written and performed by Dillon before she was old enough to drive. This small-town girl from Bellefontaine, Ohio does not write run-of-the-mill pop fare. Instead, she pens songs with unexpected spiritual and musical depth. It doesn't hurt that her melodic, philosophical musings are delivered by a voice as rich as the countryside she was raised in.
