Josh Turner’s Rousing Gospel Classic ‘How Great Thou Art’ Will Move You [Listen]
Few songs in the gospel catalog are as well-loved as the classic "How Great Thou Art." It's been covered extensively over the years (with perhaps the most famous versions being those by Elvis Presley and Carrie Underwood), but Josh Turner still manages to put a unique stamp on his delivery of the hymn.
The song, which is from his upcoming gospel album, I Serve a Savior, set for release Oct. 26., also features country/Christian singer-songwriter Sonya Isaacs. Her bright vocals dance beautifully with Turner's famous low tones, giving the familiar hymn a fresh new feel.
Turner is a devout Christian, and he says making a gospel album has been a longtime goal of his. "Working on this project has definitely been a God-ordained blessing. I never would have thought I’d be doing this record this year, but God opened a door and I walked through it,” he says in a statement.
“I’ve seen many seemingly impossible things take place during the making of this record and I’ve felt God’s anointing over it.”
I Serve a Savior will include both classic and original songs, including a stunning rendition of "I Saw the Light," as well as two of Turner's previous hits, "Long Black Train" and "Me and God."
