Believe it or not, in her four decades of leading country music with 35 chart-topping singles and 56 million albums sold, Reba McEntire has never recorded a gospel collection until now. But she’s more than making up for lost time with this double disc set split between hymns redone Reba style and new tunes of inspiration. McEntire co-produces the entire spread alongside Rascal FlattsJay DeMarcus and her band leader/musical director Doug Sisemore, resulting in a sound that straddles southern gospel, classic country, pop and contemporary Christian with a message that boldly lives up to its title on literally every single stirring occasion.
