    Full title: Country's 20 Classic Gospel Songs Of The Century.
    Liner Note Author: John W. Rumble.

    This is one of the better collections of country gospel out there, and it favors classic country artists as well. While Alison Krauss and the Cox Family open it with "I Know Who Holds Tomorrow," other than Vince Gill there are no currently charting Nash Vegas acts in the set. And yes, that is a good thing. Instead, listeners get Emmylou Harris, Dolly Parton, and Linda Ronstadt singing "Farther Along," Tammy Wynette offering "Precious Memories," Johnny Cash's "Were You There When They Crucified My Lord?," and tracks from Willie Nelson ("Uncloudy Day"), a medley from Merle Haggard, and many more. The remastered sound is beautiful, and to hear Jim Reeves, Patsy Cline, the Stanley Brothers, Ferlin Husky, Red Foley, Hank Williams, the Carters, Ricky Skaggs, Elvis Presley, and Connie Smith on one set, all singing the greatest tunes in the country gospel canon for a budget price, is almost too good to be true. Get this one ~ Thom Jurek
