CD Review: Gary Chapman Returns With Friends To Bring Out "The Truth"

Award-winning Christian country artist Gary Chapman recently released his 12th album entitled "The Truth." It has been over ten years since his last release, "Circles And Seasons" and during that time, Chapman got divorced (2007) and remarried (2008). Since that time him and his wife became involved in many charity organizations, but he never lost his love for making music.

The new 16-song release begins with the pure country sounds of "Freedom" as Chapman's voice reflects a younger Kris Kristofferson. Chapman invited a few friends along to help out on this album, beginning with Grammy award-winning artists Alison Krauss. Her vocals in the background help strengthen Chapman's voice when his reaches for those high notes. His songwriting shines with the prayer-type lyrics of "How Great A God" and with the subtle preaching of "Widow Of The South." Chapman and new wife Cassie sing together on the heartfelt "All About A Baby," before displaying his life within a song in "Everything I Know." Country superstar Rebecca Lynn Howard joins him for the gospel feel of "When I Say" and then country legend Tanya Tucker and John Rich (Big & Rich) help The Rough Crowd."
