Carrie Underwood and friends are cooking up something special for Easter Sunday this year.
The seven-time Grammy winner and three-time ACM Entertainer of the Year has recently announced her new gospel album, My Savior, set to release on March 26th.
And now, she’ll be celebrating the release of the album by taking the stage of the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, alongside gospel superstar CeCe Winans and NEEDTOBREATHE lead singer Bear Rinehart, for a special live performance on Easter Sunday.
“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.
It means so much to be able to bring this event to people in their homes on a day that holds so much meaning for us spiritually and to be able to raise much needed funds and awareness for the incredible work of Save the Children as we celebrate the importance of family.”
For the album, Underwood gathered some of her favorite gospel songs, the ones she grew up singing in church back in her hometown of Checotah, Oklahoma. She co-produced the album, along with Grammy Award winner David Garcia, who co-produced her 2018 album Cry Pretty.
“When I set out to choose these songs, I wanted to include the beautiful, familiar hymns I grew up singing in church.
There are several songs I have performed in the past, like ‘Softly And Tenderly,’ ‘How Great Thou Art’ and ‘Amazing Grace’ that mean so much to me so much to me and I knew immediately we needed to record for the album. This music shaped who I am as a person and is the foundation of my career as a recording artist. I feel so blessed to get to share these songs with generations of people who love them as I do, as well as others who might be experiencing them for the first time.”
Other songs on My Savior include “Nothing But The Blood Of Jesus,” “Blessed Assurance,” “Just As I Am,” “Victory In Jesus,” “O How I Love Jesus,” “Because He Lives,” “The Old Rugged Cross,” and “I Surrender All” and more.
The livestream concert is set to air on Easter Sunday, April 4th at 11:00am with all donations from the performance going directly to the non-profit group, Save the Children.
