Having mentored dozens of award-winning vocalists throughout its 30 years, the Gaither Vocal Band is experiencing a revival thanks to the reunion of group legends Michael English, Mark Lowry, and David Phelps. Anchored by five-year vet Wes Hampton and founder Bill Gaither, the vocal dream team soulfully belts, croons, and scats over 13 southern tunes of real life and sweet redemption. Matching members' extensive vocal experience with equally diverse tracks, including laidback ukulele strums, a honky upright piano a la Harry Connick, Jr., and a classical incorporation of Canon in D on "You Are My All in All," these down-to-earth harmony singers issue yet another collection worthy of their Grammy-winning catalog.
