Overview

Take the High Road

Five-time Grammy Award winners The Blind Boys of Alabama's amazing spirit and soul is celebrated through songs as they team up with country music royalty to release Take The High Road, a powerful new album that explores the deep connections between traditional country and gospel music.

Jamey Johnson, currently one of country music's most acclaimed and compelling artists, co-produced the album and performs on it along with guest artists Vince Gill, Willie Nelson, Hank Williams Jr., Lee Ann Womack, and The Oak Ridge Boys. This amazing country roster is further backed by an A-list of top Nashville studio musicians, with the result a stunning and powerful testament to the historic relationship between these genres.

"There wasn't one person who didn't bawl like a baby or bust their heart open at least once," said Johnson in a New York Times interview, reflecting upon these historic Nashville sessions. New friendships formed quickly between the artists, and soulful sounds were crafted out of a shared love of real and authentic spiritual music. Recorded live in just a few days at the old RCA soundstage, this album has the soulful feel of an old-school country-gospel classic. From the Label

Leave it to the Blind Boys - they continue to re-invent their music. These BOYS really know how to sing! Just heard the Blind Boys at The Sydney Opera House and they were amazing.
