Inspired: Songs of Faith & Family (Gaither Music Group)
by Joey + Rory
FOR FANS OF: Dolly Parton, The Isaacs, Alan Jackson
Rating: 4 Stars
On the heels of a major ACM award, significant country song cuts, and a popular reality TV series, the downhome singer-songwriter husband and wife duo release their first gospel record, featuring charming acoustic versions of hymnal favorites alongside the duo’s own homespun tunes celebrating faith, family and marriage. Add folky friends like Josh Turner and The Isaacs to the lineup, and Inspired is 2013’s blue ribbon winner. DVD edition will release in September.
