Here is a beautiful Gospel piece, written by Angela Russell, Buffy Lawson and Gary Duffey, called ‘Road to Surrender’. Like so many of the tunes that I post here it stands out in the crowd of country music songs because of it’s beautiful lyrics and the quality of the recordings made by the artists that have performed this tune. Randy Travis was the...

An old Gospel number dating back to 1906 which was written by James W. Acuff and composed by Emmet S. Dean, 'Just Over in the Glory Land' was recorded by Stanley Brothers in 1959. Another great Bluegrass/Gospel tune with great harmonies.

Some folks are a little shyer than me and they rarely admit that they can sing but from time to time they get caught on a microphone and whala. What do you know? They can sing. Here is a cover of 'Life Is Like A Mountain Railroad' Performed by a good friend of mine, Brenda Hubbard. Give her a little backup band and I think she did fairly well. One of these days some one will ask me if I have any recordings...

Angels Rock Me To Sleep, written by Marion W. Easterling & Thomas Ramsey

Posted 08-02-2013 at 03:30 AM by Bishop (Elger's Recording Studio)

and recorded by Bill Monroe.

One of the many bluegrass/gopel songs that I learned when I started learning a Bluegrass repitoir. Bill Monroe's 'Angels Rock Me To Sleep ' is well written lyricaly and pleasing to the ear musicaly. it is such an excelent balance.that it is no wonder it became so popular in its day. If you haven't heard this song befor please give it a listen and I think that you'll see what I mean.

One of my favorite folk / gospel tunes "The Wayfaring Stranger' is an excellent tune for any one who loves bluegrass/gospel music.

Burl Ives made it his signature song in the 40's but I must admit that I'm not quite sure where...
