By J. Ross on August 29, 2011
Format: Audio CD
Playing Time - 43:09 -- From North Carolina, The Cockman Family (John Cockman, Sr. and his five children) has been performing for nearly two decades. A seventh family member (John's wife Jane) is a music instructor and songwriter who provides advice concerning song arrangements. The family has made appearances at Dollywood, Opryland, and it was named one of a dozen "most creative families in America" by American Greeting Cards and USA Weekend. "The Promise" is their first CD since their 2002 Christmas album.

Of the thirteen songs, The Cockman Family presents about an equal number of traditional hymns and original songs. Very radio-friendly, their songs are welcomed on gospel stations ("He Giveth More Grace") as well as on bluegrass programs ("Thank You for Your Blessings"). Carefully cultivated, their song selection and arrangements allow for considerable individualism from the family members. They have exceptional talent as songwriters, vocalists, and instrumentalists.

Caroline, David and John Cockman Jr. penned the originals for this project. A Physics Instructor at Appalachian State University, John wrote and sings the title cut, a ballad about enduring love. "Looking for a Place to Cross" has John "just testing out the water, just waiting for the tide" along the River Jordan. While not the family's strongest lead vocalist, David sings his own "My Name is in the Book" and dismisses Satan's attempts to pull him down with pain and strife. The three originals from Caroline have direct, warm and conversational messages. In "Thank You For Your Blessings," Caroline declares, "I just want to stop right now and thank you, Lord, for giving me the joy of one more day.
