All Music Guide - Rodney Batdorf
In the spring of 1997, Bob Carlisle unexpectedly had a crossover hit with "Butterfly Kisses," an ode to his love for his daughter that just happened to hit the airwaves around Father's Day.

Although pop consumers might wish the album had more strong songs, Shades of Grace/Butterfly Kisses still demonstrates a leap forward for Carlisle, and its best, hook-laden moments make it his best record yet.

    MOST AMAZING SONG EVER IN THE PAST, PRESENT, AND FUTURE OF MUSIC

    The song "Butterfly Kisses" is absolutely amazing. I have heard it many time and I have always enjoyed it. I recently heard it played at my cousin's wedding as the song she danced with her father to, and it suited the occasion perfectly. Every time I hear it I immediately get goosebumps. That is when I know that that song is inspired by true passion. Absolutely amazing.

    Very touching song-Butterfly Kisses

    The first time I heard this song it made cry. It reminded me of my two girls who were growing up and turning into adults. They both are planning weddings. My daughter ask me to have this song for our dance. Thank you Bob Carlisle.

    Great song for a daughter's wedding

    This song has always been special to our family because our girls gave their dad butterfly kisses when they little. So when our younger daughter got married recently, she had "Butterfly Kisses" played just before she & her dad walked down the aisle. It was so emotional, just thinking of the words. Thank you, Bob Carlisle!
