Amazing Grace - A Country Salute to Gospel, Vol. 1

Lari White, John Anderson, John Berry, ...
Amazing Grace, a compilation of well-known gospel standards, brings together some of country music''s brightest stars. From Lari White''s understated delivery of the title track to Martina McBride''s mandolin led version of "How Great Thou Art" to the Charlie Daniels Band''s soulful rendering of "Kneel at the Cross," Amazing Grace is a real treat for fans of both secular country music and white Southern gospel. Accompanied by a full band including a bittersweet fiddle and a steel guitar, Paul Overstreet kicks up the tempo with "A Mansion Over the Hilltop," while Shenandoah''s "Beulah Land" recalls both Glen Campbell''s take on high-lonesome balladry as well as the tight harmonies of Alabama. And sung by the sweetest voices of the genre, two of the loveliest tracks on the record are born of the bluegrass gospel tradition: "I''d Rather Have Jesus" and "Precious Memories," performed by Alison Krauss and the Cox Family and Emmylou Harris, respectively.
