After conquering the Christian charts throughout the ‘90s and crossing over into country throughout the 2000s, it’s only fitting to find the Point of Grace ladies applying their unmistakable harmonies to favorites from each of those avenues. No matter if they’re covering Wynonna’s “Only Love,” Avalon’s “Friend of a Wounded Heart,” Carrie Underwood’s “Something in the Water” or Matt Maher’s “Lord, I Need You,” the trio spins pure vocal gold, all while maintaining instrumental continuity throughout the otherwise diverse origins. Much of that can be credited to the group’s co-production alongside Andy Leftwich (of Kentucky Thunder fame), plus from contributions from Ricky Skaggs and Vince Gill, all of which further reinforce the instantly appealingly, earthy nature of this faith-nurturing collection.
