Country stars guest on latest Blind Boys Of Alabama album

THE VETERAN black gospel group the Blind Boys Of Alabama have recorded their first ever country gospel album. 'Take The High Road' was produced by renowned country producer Jamey Johnson and features guest appearances from Vince Gill, Willie Nelson, Hank Williams Jr, Lee Ann Womack and The Oakridge Boys. In a recent interview in New York Times Johnson recounted, ""There wasn't one person who didn't bawl like a baby or bust their heart open at least once." Remarked Jimmy Carter, the last original Blind Boy still touring with the band, "It's been a dream of mine to do a country gospel album and we couldn't have found a better partner than Jamey." The album is released through Proper Records on 9th May. The Blind Boys Of Alabama will perform live at Under The Bridge, Chelsea as part of Blues Fest London on 28th June. CR
