40th Anniversary: Celebrating Faith, Family & Freedom (Gaither Music Group)
by The Oak Ridge Boys

FOR FANS OF: Bill Gaither, George Jones, Kenny Rogers
Rating: 3 Stars

Subtitled Celebrating Faith, Family & Freedom, this latest compilation from the kings of gospel-infused country music certainly touches on their most beloved popular, spiritual and patriotic songs. But considering their influential career has spanned four decades, a mere dozen tunes on a single disc seems much too short, even if everything contained therein sports plenty of sweet southern harmonies and meaningful messages.
