For those of ya’ll who have been anticipating Carrie Underwood’s new Gospel album My Savior (myself included), the wait is over.
The seven-time Grammy winner and three-time ACM Entertainer of the Year is officially ready to take us all to church.
“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.”
The collection of gospel songs she has chosen is a compilation of her favorite gospel hymns she sang growing up in her hometown church in Checotah, OK.
“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 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 much as I do, as well as others who might be experiencing them for the first time.”
Other tracks on the album include “Nothing But The Blood 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.”
She also has something huge planned for Easter Sunday, as she will be streaming a live virtual performance of the album at the iconic Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, with friends CeCe Williams and Bear Rinehart from NEEDTOBREATHE.
