Style: Bluegrass gospel; compare to Vince Gill, Ricky Skaggs, Rhonda Vincent
Top tracks: "Waiting in the Water," "I Still Trust You," "I'm Gonna' Love You Through It"
Highly regarded for their individual achievements as session players (Dolly Parton, Dierks Bentley), songwriters (Martina McBride, Vince Gill) and Grammy-nominated producers (Cherryholmes), Becky, Ben and Sonya, along with matriarchal member, Lily, are best known for their harmonious collaborations as gospel music's first family of bluegrass. From fast-paced finger picking to sweeping balladry, the talented multi-instrumentalists cover a wide musical gamut on Why Can't We. Lyrically, they keep it real, tackling tough topics with vulnerable expressions of doubt and faith. They have an uncanny ability to turn Scripture stories into relevant life applications via songs.1
