Award-winning singer-songwriter, Carrie Underwood releases her first full-length gospel album “My Savior,” just in time for Easter (Download/Stream).
The 13-track project marks Carrie Underwood’s eighth studio album and the first gospel collection since she broke forth to the music scene. “My Savior” consists of covers of traditional gospel hymns and is a spiritual companion to her first-ever Christmas album “My Gift” released in 2020.
With production from Underwood and David Garcia, the new album features classic hymns like “How Great Thou Art” and “Amazing Grace,” while Underwood also sought to bring a fresh sound, such as the acoustic rock-inspired “Nothing But the Blood of Jesus” that features a duet from Bear Rinehart from NEEDTOBREATHE, Gospel icon CeCe Winans on “Great Is Thy Faithfulness” with vocal runs that soar to the heavens.
“This is an album I have always wanted to record. When I set out to choose these songs, I wanted to include the beautiful, familiar hymns I grew up singing in church,” says Underwood. “There are several songs I have performed in the past, like ‘Softly And Tenderly’, ‘How Great Thou Art’ and ‘Amazing Grace’ that means so much to me and I knew immediately we needed to record for the album.”
Carrie Underwood will perform classic hymns from her new album ‘My Savior’ in a live-streamed concert on Easter Sunday. “My Savior: Live From the Ryman” which airs from Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium at 11:00 am ET on April 4th, 2021 streaming for free on Underwood’s Facebook page. Donations raised during the event will benefit “Save the Children” an organization that has contributed to raising the importance of family as echoed by the celebrated country artist.
