Matthew West is taking a trip down memory lane as his oldest daughter, Lulu, is gearing up to graduate high school with the release of '18 Summers'. 

The song walks through special moments the West family has had over the last 18 years. It also touches on how fast time flies and some standout moments along the way.

“I talk a lot about the power of story, but this song is literally written in real-time in the exact chapter of the story that our family is in right now,” West tells Woman’s World.  “It’s graduation time. My oldest daughter is getting ready to graduate from high school, and my wife and I are both just in our feelings about that.”

'18 Summers' follows the release of 'Don't Stop Praying', a call-to-action and charge for believers around the world.
