Beginning with the stirring 'When We All Get To Heaven' by Brad Paisley it's the most poignant way to start our musical journey here for his Gospel-tinged lo-fi country hit is backed seamlessly by the gently vocalized 'Jesus Help Me To Stand' (Alison Kraus & Union Station), Randy Travis' spent and sorrowful 'Peace In The Valley,' and both Charlie Daniels' frenetically upbeat 'Swing Down Chariot,' and then a heartwarming rendition of 'Amazing Grace' from Billy Ray Cyrus.
Mo Pitney is up next with a heartfelt 'How Deep The Father's Love For Us,' which in turn is followed by Aaron Watson's 'Sonshine' (from his brilliant Barbed Wire Halo album), and then comes one of my own personal favorites here, Jason Crabb (featuring his daughter Ashleigh Crabb) with a truly uplifting 'This Little Light of Mine.'
A man who will have you reaching for your Bible, T. Graham Brown next brings is the deep-throated wonderment of 'Just a Closer Walk With Thee' which is backed up by Drew Baldridge (featuring Mike & Doug Baldridge) on the earthly soul of 'It Is Well With My Soul' (with lyrics written by Philip Bliss and Horatio Spafford).
Up next is the lo-fi bluegrass Gospel of The Judds' beloved 'When King Jesus Calls His Children Home,' then comes the luscious, warm vocal tones of B.J. Thomas on his 1982 hit 'What A Friend We Have In Jesus,' with the delicate guitar work and vocals from Wade Hayes on 'In Christ Alone.'
This just beautiful second volume of Country Faith Hymns then rounds out with another (new) classic in the form of The Bellamy Brothers' country reggaefied 'Suppertime,' the beloved and uplifting 'The Church In The Wildwood' from Charley Pride, and then a young LeAnn Rimes brings us an emphatically poignant 'The Lord's Prayer.'
