AllMusic Review by

This brief collection of country gospel favorites is appropriately reverent, but doesn't feature enough individuality in its performances to boost it above any of the hundreds of other compilations just like it. Tommy Daugherty is possessed of a soulful croon, and he puts it to good use on "Amazing Grace," and especially on a bluesy version of "People Get Ready." The Gospelaires have some great harmonies, but their performances just don't resonate beyond a few listens. The girl group feel of Touch My Soul's "On the Jericho Road" just seems a bit out of place in this set.
