The Texas-born artist CALEB HYLES is glad to share with old and new fans the single “Never Back Down”. The song, released today February 16th via Judge & Jury Records, features the Christian rapper and rock artist Manafest. Watch the lyric video here:

Never Back Down" is an anthemic call - to - arms for all those who are tired of feeling like they're stuck in place, sinking to the bottom, or never feeling like they're "enough". The song cries out to a generation that has given up on one another and themselves; daring us to break the status - quo through faith, perseverance, and choosing to trust. We will "Never Back Down" from making the difficult decisions. We will "Never Back Down" from choosing to listen. We will "Never Back Down" from accepting that we all have a long way to go. Head above water. We will not drown.” - Caleb Hyles
