Voice of the Spirit: The Gospel of the South

****
As producer for this fresh collection of traditional Southern gospel tunes, John Carter Cash mixes voices young and old, black and white, and records them up close and personal so the spirit can travel directly from the singer’s soul to yours. Standouts include Mavis Staples and Marty Stuart’s stark “Twelve Gates to the City,” Rodney Crowell’s timely “Denomination Blues” and one of Johnny Cash’s final recordings, a moving take on “Unclouded Day.” The crowning jewel is the finale, Vince Gill’s sublime “What Are They Doing in Heaven Today?”
