This project is the tenth in the Country Faith series of faith-based music recordings by top country artists as created and produced by Deborah Evans Price and Danny McGuffey. This newest collection, co-produced by Jerry Salley, contains 14 songs from some of bluegrass music’s well-known artists performing either newly recorded tunes or taken from the artist’s previously released projects. New recordings can be heard from artists including Dolly Parton, Doyle Lawson, Marty Raybon, Dale Ann Bradley, Joe Mullins, The Steeldrivers, and Darin and Brooke Aldridge.
One new recording is from Dolly Parton who is joined by Larry Cordle, Carl Jackson, Jerry Salley, and Bradley Walker, who perform the classic “In The Sweet By and By.” “Shall We Gather At The River” is new from Doyle Lawson and Quicksilver,” and Marty Raybon is joined by Jerry Salley on “My Future Ain’t What Is Used To Be.” Dale Ann Bradley teams up with The Isaacs to perform “Working On A Building,” and Joe Mullins and his Radio Ramblers give a new turn for the classic “Rank Strangers.” The Steeldrivers offer “River Of Forgiveness,” Caeland Garner is backed by Balsam Range on “Walk With Me,” and Darin and Brooke Aldridge spin “Drifting Too Far From The Shore.”
Previously recorded tracks come from the artists’ repertoire including Vince Gill’s title cut “All Prayed Up,” “Will There Be Any Stars” from Alison Krauss’ I Know Who Holds Tomorrow with the Cox Family, Daily and Vincent “By The Mark” from their self-titled release, “Daniel Prayed” is Patty Loveless and Ricky Skaggs from Patty’s Mountain Soul, and “I’m Bound for the Land of Canaan” from Del McCoury’s The Promised Land. The project concludes with a version of the classic “Walking in Jerusalem (Just Like John)” which is taken from the Songs from the Longleaf Pines collection by Charlie Daniels, Mac Wiseman and The Whites. Listeners will find this a very fine collection of music from some of bluegrass music’s favorite artists.
