The worlds of country and gospel have been intertwined closely since the heart-stirring ballads of the Carter Family, the Louvin Brothers, and Hank Williams ruled the airwaves in the early days of broadcast radio. Today's country stars (and fans) are no less vulnerable to the beauty of an inspirational song, and this collection gathers some of the best in recent years.
The title comes from the gorgeous Randy Travis hymn that opens the album, and the songs here--mostly mid-tempo ballads--live up to the strong opening salvo. Vince Gill's "Go Rest High On That Mountain" is spine-tingling, "A Living Prayer" foregrounds Alison Krauss's stunning voice over a sparse guitar arrangement, and the Judds' classic "Love Can Build A Bridge" closes the album on a high note.
