Just Say Jesus is the second studio album by Christian rock band 7eventh Time Down, released on September 3, 2013 through BEC Recordings. All four members co-wrote the majority of the 10 tracks, while also lyrically collaborating with respected songwriters Ian Eskelin, Jeff Pardo and Tony Wood. Eskelin produced two of the tracks, while frontman Mikey Howard produced the additional eight. The majority of the album was cut in Howard's basement studio in Mount Vernon, Kentucky, the same basement of his childhood home where the band recorded their first song when they were young teens.
"There's a story told in each song," bass player Cliff Williams explained. "We write about living and what inspires us because Christians are real people. As believers, God will inspire you. It's going to be the biggest part of who you are. That doesn't mean at times you're not going to write a song that's reflective of who you used to be. We're just southern dudes who've got dirty pasts just like all the other people who have come to know God."
The album peaked at number 16 on the US Christian Albums chart and number 11 on the US Top Heatseekers Albums chart.
