Absolutely love it can't beat the old time country Gospel

"It is a long-standing tradition in country music to get big stars to do gospel favorites and classic hymns. The results can often be quite mediocre (uninspired, overly sentimental, sloppy musical arrangements, etc.) or quite good (as with Johnny Cash). Happily, I would mostly put this collection in the latter category. This is largely a better version of the 2004 release, 'Amazing Grace, vol. 3' (also by Sparrow Records), which included six of the songs found on this collection:
'Tis So Sweet To Trust In Jesus - Cyndi Thomson Softly And Tenderly - Josh Turner It Is No Secret - Dierks Bentley I Need Thee Every Hour - Jamie O'Neal Victory In Jesus - Trace Adkins Just A Closer Walk With Thee - Joe Nichols
These are largely the better tracks from the prior album, with Cyndi Thomson's rendition of "'Tis So Sweet to Trust in Jesus" being the stand-out track in my opinion. The added tracks in this new collection are fantastic, including Lee Ann Womack at her finest in "Get Up in Jesus' Name" and a lovely, respectful version of "Amazing Grace" by Lari White. The arrangements on all the tracks are well-thought and the singing is sincere. My only disappointment is the leading track, "But For the Grace of God," by Keith Urban, which is a fine song but doesn't quite belong with the other, more traditional, songs."

"I really liked "Kneel at the Cross". The Hymns are rarely heard these days and it is so good to be able to hear them again."
