The Jordanaires, Larry Ford and The Light Crust Doughboys bring you the Grammy winning album, We Called Him Mr. Gospel Music: The James Blackwood Tribute Album. This stunning, emotional album contains 18 tracks.
Possibly the crowning achievment of the indie label Art Greenhaw Records, this masterwork album won the Grammy Award in it's Gospel field against great odds and major-label Grammy Finalists. This is an emotional and heartfelt tribute to the "Southern Gospel singer of the century," James Blackwood, by his music disciples Art Greenhaw, Larry Ford and James' friends, The Jordanaires and The Light Crust Doughboys. This album plays like the great dramatic journey that it is: James himself speaking-singing, the "precious memories" of his past with the Blackwood Brothers, and on to his homegoing and James' "first day in heaven."
A stunning, essential album for all those interested in Southern Gospel music, 4-part quartet music and heaven-sent, soaring vocals. Some amazing, out-of-the-box artists do guest turns in the album, such as The Ventures' Nokie Edwards and Dallas, Texas' Preston Hollow Presbyterian Choir.
