There have been a lot of changes in Christian music over the past couple decades. A large portion of the market today includes Contemporary Christian Music and my preferred genre of Christian Country Music, or Inspirational Country Music, is growing in popularity all the time.
I have released several albums over the years and I always try to include a couple hymns on each project … and it seems that the hymns always bring the most compliments. I must admit, when I wake up in the middle of the night, the hymns are the songs that are on my heart. They have an immense capacity to minister and they are soothing to the soul.
With that in mind I have dedicated this entire “Inspirational Country” album to just a few of the great hymns of the faith. I pray they will be a blessing to you as they have been to me.
Songs include: Tell Me the Story of Jesus, Near to the Heart of God, Sheltered in the Arms of God, How Big is God, Jesus Paid it All, Sweet Hour of Prayer, Where Could I Go, Amazing Grace, It is No Secret and How Great Thou Art.
IT’S HERE! “Just a Cowboy and His Guitar” is now available at all of my live concerts and in selects stores in the Cambridge, NY area. The Title Song is a tribute to the “Cowboys” and “Cowgirls” who share the good news of Jesus Christ in word and song. Also included is a song entitled “If We Never Meet Again” (this side of Heaven) which is dedicated to the memory of my precious daughter-in-law Terri Ann Witham (1968-2012) who recently succumbed to a four year battle with Ovarian Cancer. I’m excited about this most recent project … I think it’s the best one yet! May God bless it richly and may it be a blessing to those who listen to Christian Country Music.
I am making plans to head back to Tennessee to record my next CD. The musicians are being scheduled and I am praying that we can be in the studio the last week in July. The title song for this CD will be a song I wrote called, “Just a Cowboy and His Guitar.” (Fitting, don’t you think!) There’s a lot of great songs that will be included … almost a sequel to the last CD, “Old Favorites”. The title song, as well as “The Last Cattle Call” will include some yodeling (a first for me on a professional recording). I’m hoping to get my dad to harmonize the yodeling with me … that will be a real treasure. I will post more information as it becomes available and I covet your continued prayers for this ministry.
Next weekend, January 13 – 15, 2012, I will be headed back out on the concert trail with the WNGN Concert Series. After major surgery on December 5, 2011, I will be recovered sufficiently to get back in the saddle again. And that’s a good thing because there’s nothing I love better than singing and preaching about my LORD and Savior, Jesus Christ. And that’s what I get to do … how cool is that! The WNGN Concert Series will include six concerts in three days. For more information about times and places please check the 2012 Calendar on this site. I look forward to seeing you on the concert trail.
