The Gettys’ latest album, Evensong: Hymns and Lullabies at the Close of Day, recently topped Billboard‘s Kid Albums chart, surpassing the chart’s long-reigning leader, Disney’s Frozen 2 soundtrack, for the first time in 36 weeks.
Irish-born modern-hymn writers, Keith & Kristyn Getty collaborated with several country, bluegrass, and classical artists on the project, including Vince Gill, Heather Headley, Ellie Holcomb, Sierra Hull, Deborah Klemme, Sandra McCracken, and Skye Peterson. Album producer Ben Shive was able to gather recordings from each musical collaborator and create a project fusing the Celtic, folk, bluegrass, classical, and Americana sound the Gettys have become known for.
Keith Getty states, “This project is so much broader than simply a project for children. From the earliest age to our waning years, the hymns and songs we sing are some of our closest companions, shaping the way we think about life, about God, about ourselves, and about others. We wanted to create a timeless album that our children could grow old gracefully with and that people of every age could use as a way to refocus their minds and hearts in the midst of the business of life. This project is for the entire family.”
