March 7, 2011 marked another new chapter in the remarkable career of music legend and American icon, Kenny Rogers. That is the day his first inspirational gospel album, The Love Of God, became available exclusively at Cracker Barrel Old Country Store® locations nationwide. Featuring 12 uplifting songs sung only the way Rogers can sing them, the record includes all-new recordings of classic hymns and gospel and contemporary songs that have touched him musically and spiritually through the years, dating back to his childhood growing up in Houston where he regularly attended church with his family. At the heart of the record is hope and peace.
Rogers, one of music's legendary voices, has put his indelible stamp on classics like "Will The Circle Be Unbroken," "I'll Fly Away," "Amazing Grace" and "In The Sweet By And By" and turned in beautifully poignant performances on more recently composed songs such as "Peace" (written by Michael McDonald & Beth Nielsen Chapman), "Grace" (written by Michael W. Smith & Martin Smith) and "The Rock Of Your Love" (written by Vince Gill, Al Anderson & Leslie Satcher). Guest artists appearing on the album include The Whites on "I'll Fly Away," Winfield's Locket on "In The Sweet By And By" and Point of Grace on "Circle Of Friends.""What an incredible album this has turned out to be," Rogers says of The Love Of God. "It seems I have a personal relationship with every song on it. 'In The Sweet By And By' was my mom's favorite song. When I was a kid, as I was leaving to go to school, I remember hearing her sing along with that song on the radio as she did her morning ironing. Music is by far the best 'memory creator' I know, and that memory is very special to me."
Marked by strikingly fresh musical and vocal arrangements, the warm and inviting album is quite eclectic, yet a common thread running through each of the songs ties the project neatly together. From the exhilarating opening track, "Will The Circle Be Unbroken" - which cleverly intertwines country, R&B, gospel, bluegrass and choral music, to the sweeping strings and heartfelt vocal performance on the calming "Peace," to the perfectly rootsy "I'll Fly Away" (the most authentic bluegrass recording of Rogers' career), featuring unmistakably genuine harmony vocals by The Whites, The Love Of God begins with three fascinating musical statements that set the stage for a stirring collection of songs. "The trick to doing a good concept record is surrounding yourself with unique musicians, singers, and creative talent," Rogers says. "When you hear 'I'll Fly Away,' there is no question that The Whites are singing. Anything they sing takes on their own special sound, and it feels perfect for this record."
