This is a very interesting new CD of 12 tunes combining the sounds of both Western Swing and inspirational music sung by a very talented young lady. It was produced by Western Swing steel guitar great Albert Talley. He is also spotlighted on Steel Guitar on this album. The album opens with the swinging He Keeps Me Singing and then goes on to the first of three originals composed by Cherilyn, Out of Darkness. Other tunes included from her pen are He is Risen and Let Your Living Water Flow. Cherilyn also includes Cindy Walker's Christian Cowboy and a wonderful medley of Leaning on the Everlasting Arms/I've Got Peace Like a River. The sacred classic The Old Rugged Cross is done Texas style and a classic mix of Western Swing and Gospel on Amazing Grace. There is a swinging Where Could I Go and the remaining cuts, Blessed Assurance, Great is Thy Faithfulness and Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus.
The musicians joining Albert and his steel are Hank Singer- fiddle, Chuck Back- lead guitar, Wayne Bennett-drums, Jim Pack- bass, Jerry Matheny- rhythm guitar and Mike McClain- keyboards.
