Kenny Rogers Shows His ‘Love of God’ on New Album
Kenny Rogers is set to release his next album, 'The Love of God,' exclusively through Cracker Barrel stores on March 7. The collection contains classic inspirational tunes from the iconic entertainer's childhood, along with two new songs.
In addition to the title track, the album will include 'Amazing Grace,' 'What a Friend We Have in Jesus' and 'Will the Circle Be Unbroken,' and will feature special guests Point of Grace, the Whites and Winfield's Locket.
"'The Love of God' is the culmination of an idea I had been thinking about for years but never had the opportunity to bring to life," says Kenny. "It's been a musical awakening to me ... I have a personal relationship with every song on it. For example, 'In the Sweet By And By' was my mom's favorite song. When I was a kid, as I was leaving to go to school, I remember hearing her sing along with the radio. Music is by far the best 'memory creator' I know, and that memory is very special to me."
The legendary performer becomes the first artist to release a second album through Cracker Barrel. 'Kenny Rogers: 50 Years,' featuring some of his biggest hits over the past 50 years, was released in 2008.
Kenny also has his own GAC-TV special airing next month. 'Kenny Rogers: The First 50 Years,' featuring performances by Dolly Parton, Lionel Richie, Alison Krauss, Tim McGraw, Billy Currington, Wynonna and Darius Rucker, among others, premieres on Tuesday, March 8 at 8:30 PM (ET) on GAC.
