Alan Jackson is one of the greats in modern country music, eschewing the modern movement towards the popification of country music. He has that great, old time country sound that really makes his music a breath of fresh air, compared to so many of his contemporaries. In this 2006 album, Alan Jackson turned his considerable talents, and clear strong voice, to the great old time hymns that so many of us grew up with.
I found this to be a great album, filled with lots of very precious memories. I love all of the hymns he selected here, and I think that he did a great job of rendering them in his own country style. I highly recommend this precious album.
