After hearing Baylor Football's "Rise Up" commercials this summer, Baylor alumnus and award-winning recording artist David Crowder was inspired to not only write but record a new song, also titled "Rise Up."
Crowder offered the song to Baylor, and fans at Floyd Casey Stadium this fall will hear it as the Bears take the field immediately prior to each game. "Rise Up" debuted during Baylor's home opener Sept. 4, and Crowder is now offering the song as a free download just for Bear fans.
