No doubt about it, some of the best Christian music is sitting right there on the racks of your local High Street record emporium. Skaggs' roots go deep into trad rural country and bluegrass, but much of his current music is spliced with new Country licks. He's highly rated amongst his peers as a multi-instrumentalist extraordinaire, and if you thrill to the devastating guitar picking of such as Albert Lee you'll want to know that Ricky is one of the few capable of staying the pace. A real plus is that this album is full of solid Christian content, and without preaching the songs communicate very winsomely and the sleeve notes include clear testimony. Good to see Paul Overstreet and Mac McAnally involved, both Christian who are highly esteemed in contemporary acoustic country. An album of fine songs superbly rendered. Support the heroes who are out there making waves in the big pond.
