Carrie Underwood has revealed the track list for My Savior, her new album of gospel hymns set for release on CD and digital March 26.
In anticipation of the project, Underwood has released “Softly And Tenderly” as an instant-grat track for those who pre-order the digital album. Underwood first performed the beloved hymn during a moving In Memoriam tribute at the 51st Annual CMA Awards telecast, which she hosted with Brad Paisley in 2017.
My Savior features covers of traditional gospel hymns Underwood grew up singing. Highlights of the album include a duet with CeCe Winans on the classic hymn “Great Is Thy Faithfulness,” and singer/songwriter Bear Rinehart of NEEDTOBREATHE on “Nothing But The Blood Of Jesus.”
Underwood and co-producer David Garcia assembled a group of elite Nashville musicians for My Savior, including Southern gospel and harmonica legend Buddy Greene, 10-time CMA Musician of the Year Mac McAnally, Southern gospel piano virtuoso Gordon Mote, and frequent Underwood collaborator, singer/songwriter/musician Brett James joining Underwood on harmonies, among many others, to create a unique pastiche of musical styles for the record.
“This is an album I have always wanted to record. When I set out to choose these songs, I wanted to include the beautiful, familiar hymns I grew up singing in church,” said Underwood. “There are several songs I have performed in the past, like ‘Softly And Tenderly,’ ‘How Great Thou Art’ and ‘Amazing Grace’ that mean so much to me and I knew immediately we needed to record for the album. This music shaped who I am as a person and is the foundation of my career as a recording artist. I feel so blessed to get to share these songs with generations of people who love them as I do, as well as others who might be experiencing them for the first time.”
