Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Amazing Grace, a compilation of well-known gospel standards, brings together some of country music's brightest stars. From Lari White's understated delivery of the title track to Martina McBride's mandolin led version of "How Great Thou Art" to the Charlie Daniels Band's soulful rendering of "Kneel at the Cross," Amazing Grace is a real treat for fans of both secular country music and white Southern gospel. Accompanied by a full band including a bittersweet fiddle and a steel guitar, Paul Overstreet kicks up the tempo with "A Mansion Over the Hilltop," while Shenandoah's "Beulah Land" recalls both Glen Campbell's take on high-lonesome balladry as well as the tight harmonies of Alabama. And sung by the sweetest voices of the genre, two of the loveliest tracks on the record are born of the bluegrass gospel tradition: "I'd Rather Have Jesus" and "Precious Memories," performed by Alison Krauss and the Cox Family and Emmylou Harris, respectively. --Paige La Grone

5.0 out of 5 stars Slow, maybe, but Beautifully Slow May 8, 2004
Format:Audio CD
I honestly don't understand why anyone would want to hear "Amazing Grace" any other way but slow. Lari White sings it beautifully, with reverence. That's the way most of these tracks are. The females are the highlight. Lari White, Martina McBride, Susan Ashton, Allison Krause, and of course Emmylou. The production values are better than you can find on any country gospel album. I think Martina McBride's "How Great Thou Art" is being played on loudspeaker at the pearly gates for eternity. I'm not overly religious or emotional, but this album sooths my soul and brings a tear to my eye.

5.0 out of 5 stars A real blessing! July 4, 2003
Format:Audio CD
Absolutely BEAUTIFUL! This TRADITIONAL version of these timeless classics really brings back the memories. What wonderful rendtions performed with the original scores and at a worshipful and appreciative tempo. This is not a youthful exciting version of the classics, this is the GOOD STUFF! The way I remember them, you can hear the sincereity and praise in the artists voices! This is a vocal and spiritual homecoming.

4.0 out of 5 stars Predictably good recording May 9, 2000
Format:Audio CD
There's a myth of sorts that says that if you're a Christian you have to buy gospel music, and vice-versa. I didn't buy this because of any religious or gospel reason; I bought it because I liked the artists. Going by that standard, it was very much predictable -- solid artists = solid songs. The one standout here is Martina McBride -- when she sings "How Great Thou Art," you feel as though God himself commissioned the recording. She is truly that spectacular. The rest of the disc is pleasant and charming.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent recordings by well known country artists. January 17, 2000
Format:Audio CD
This is one of my favourite Country Gospel CD's. Some of Country's most prominent artists are featured performing classic Christian hymns. Lari White does "Amazing Grace" unlike anyone I have ever heard. Billy Dean and Susan Ashton team up for "In the Garden". "Mansion Over the Hilltop" is done superbly by Paul Overstreet. The Charlie Daniels Band with "Kneel at the Cross" and Emmylou Harris with "Precious Memories" are both uplifting and superb recordings. This compilation is a must for those of us who love Gospel and Country music.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Excellent Collection of Gospel Favorites October 20, 1998
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I discovered this title by accident at the public library. I loved it immediately, and bought my own copy. The old classics are played in various styles that would have you believing they were written only recently. The recording quality is excellent, and the collection of artists used prevents the sound from becoming repetitive. A MUST BUY for Gospel music lovers.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome CD March 27, 2008
Format:Audio CD
I had this CD once before and it was scratched in
my motorcycle saddlebag. Glad to get the replacement
and what a way to travel on a motorcycle by listening
to gospel songs.
