The featured album includes hymns that Underwood grew up singing, such as “Jesus Loves Me, “The Old Rugged Cross” and “Amazing Grace.” “This is an album I have always wanted to record and I’m thrilled to be able to bring these uplifting, inspirational songs to life in this special way,” Underwood said in a statement.
There’s no better place to belt out these gospel classics than the iconic Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, Tennessee—also known as “The Mother Church of Country Music.” Underwood has graced the stage with her presence at the venue many times, as one of the most successful country artists of the century.
The recorded performance features Cece Winnans, the most-awarded female gospel artist of all time, on “Great Is Thy Faithfulness” and Bear Rhineheart, frontman of the rock band NEEDTOBREATHE, on “Nothing But The Blood Of Jesus.”
In addition, Underwood has given back to the community by streaming her performance of My Savior live on Easte, raising over $112,000 for the charity Save the Children.
You can preorder the DVD here now. Also, starting on July 23rd, the performance will be streaming on multiple platforms for a limited time, including: PBS, DIRECTV, DISH TV, Circle TV, TBN, RFD-TV, GAITHERTV (Roku/Apple/Amazon) and on the Gaither TV YouTube Channel.
