Classic Country Voices Praise the Lord

Since Randy Travis' last secular album in 1999, he's been pumping out Contemporary Christian records. Glory Train is his 5th, and like the other 4 it hold its own. Travis' voice remains a modern Country miracle, so it's always good to hear a master stylist. Like Rod Stewart's Popular Song CD's, the concept may start to dry up. How many more religious songs will Travis have to find? On this one we get "He's Got The Whole World In His Hands". So I'm hoping he hasn't completely given up on the secular stuff that secures his place in Nashville lore. By the time Charlie Rich's religious Silver Linings came out in 1976, he was at the peak of his 70's chart-topping comeback. Out of print, and then in print, this CD is still in print. Rich fans and fans of good singing should scoop it up. It was Rich's last great CD and his voice is in prime shape. Good Religious music whether you're a believer or not.
