Kenny Rogers Plans Inspirational Album

Kenny Rogers will release an inspirational album, The Love of God, through Cracker Barrel stores on March 7. The collection gathers inspirational songs from his childhood as well as two new songs. “The Love of God is the culmination of an idea I had been thinking about for years but never had the opportunity to bring to life,” said Rogers. “It’s been a musical awakening to me.” Guests include Point of Grace, the Whites and Winfield’s Locket. Along with the title track, selections include “Amazing Grace,” “What a Friend We Have in Jesus,” “Will the Circle Be Unbroken” and his mother’s favorite song, “In the Sweet By and By.” After leaving the First Edition, Rogers scored his first solo hit in 1975 with an arrangement of the inspirational “Love Lifted Me.”
