two by two



#1 New York Times bestselling author Nicholas Sparks & recording artist JD Eicher present a special collection of music featuring the original song Two By Two, inspired by the book. 

The Two By Two soundtrack is no longer being offered as a free download. Songs from the collection can be listened to on Spotify & Pandora Radio. The full soundtrack, including an unreleased acoustic version of “Two By Two” is now available for purchase via iTunes & Amazon.


It’s been so stimulating creatively, and rewarding at a personal level, to collaborate with JD on the Two By Two soundtrack project. I know my readers will flock to his music because he intuitively understands the characters and relationships at the heart of this story – he is a master of complex emotion.

The opportunity to collaborate with Nicholas on the Two By Two project has been a great honor and very exciting for me. I love the challenge of writing a song for a particular purpose, and diving into the Two By Two story and its themes was an inspiring and rewarding process. I am beyond grateful to have the chance to work with such a gifted storyteller!

How did this collaboration come about?

Two By Two  is Nicholas’s twentieth book. In celebration of that, and the fact that Nicholas loves JD Eicher’s music, Nicholas asked JD to write an original song inspired by the book. JD agreed. Nicholas and JD exchanged phone calls and emails discussing the background of the book, Russell and London’s story, Nicholas’s inspiration in writing the book, fatherhood, love stories, raising daughters, music, life, and everything else. The result is the original song, "Two By Two".

“We’ll find our way two by two….”

 Nicholas decides to try his hand at songwriting, while JD tackles the book world.

About the Book

In his new novel Two By Two, #1 New York Times bestselling author Nicholas Sparks returns with a poignant tale of rediscovered love and the power of family, with the emotionally powerful story of one man’s journey to rebuild his life as the single parent of a six-year old daughter.

At 32, Russell Green has it all: a stunning wife, a lovable six year-old daughter, a successful career as an advertising executive and an expansive home in Charlotte. He is living the dream, and his marriage to the bewitching Vivian is the center of that.  But underneath the shiny surface of this perfect existence, fault lines are beginning to appear...and no one is more surprised than Russ when he finds every aspect of the life he took for granted turned upside down...
