The Truth  (Merf Music Group)
by  Gary Chapman

FOR FANS OF: John Hiatt, Russ Taff, Bruce Cockburn
Rating: 4 Stars

A little more than a decade is a long time to wait for an entirely new studio album, but Gary Chapman richly rewards faithful fans with 16 stellar tunes. The multiple Dove Award-winning solo artist, songwriter for other artists and part-time television star brilliantly blurs the lines between contemporary pop, country and gospel by sounding equally genuine on each, while sharing many enriching life lessons alongside famous friends like Alison Krauss, John Rich and Tanya Tucker.
