This single CD album from the Canadian singer/songwriter is in effect two albums in one. 'I'm In Love With Jesus' is a country gospel outing with Jeanne having written and performed all 10 tracks. The songs are well crafted and put together with a nice range of styles without straying far from the stereotypical sounds of country music. The second half of the disc offers 'Hymns Of The Heart', a collection of classic hymns given a country makeover. From "Amazing Grace" through "Blessed Assurance" to "Old Rugged Cross", all the usual suspects are here. A more imaginative choice of repertoire would have been welcome, though again these renditions are well produced and arranged and certainly don't loose any of their lyrical impact. If your tastes veer towards country gospel this is an album worthy of investigation.
