Album: In a Gospel WayUtgitt: 1974Låtskriver: Bobby AbshireLabel: Razor & Tie – RE 2138-2CreditsBacking Vocals – The JordanairesEngineer – Charlie Bragg, Lou BradleyProducer – Billy Sherrill***In a Gospel Way is an album by American country music artist George Jones, released in 1974 on the Epic Records label.BackgroundJones affinity for gospel music dated back to his childhood when he learned to play the guitar at the church where his mother Clara played piano. This was Jones fifth collection of spiritual music; he had recorded three on his own (the first dating back to 1959) and one with his wife Tammy Wynette titled We Love To Sing About Jesus in 1972. AllMusic states that "Although producer Billy Sherrill's use of billowy string arrangements, crying steel guitar and the Jordanaires and Nashville Edition as background vocalists makes Gospel Way a neat, countrypolitan package, Possum's pain radiates clearly in songs such as 'Mama's Hands' and 'Release Me (From My Sin).'***George Glenn Jones (September 12, 1931 – April 26, 2013) was an American musician, singer and songwriter. He achieved international fame for his long list of hit records, including his best known song "He Stopped Loving Her Today", as well as his distinctive voice and phrasing. For the last twenty years of his life, Jones was frequently referred to as the greatest living country singer. Country music scholar Bill Malone writes, "For the two or three minutes consumed by a song, Jones immerses himself so completely in its lyrics, and in the mood it conveys, that the listener can scarcely avoid becoming similarly involved." Waylon Jennings expressed a similar opinion in his song "It's Alright": "If we all could sound like we wanted to, we'd all sound like George Jones." The shape of his nose and facial features earned Jones the nickname "The Possum" #GeorgeJones #GodkeepsTheWildFlowerBlooming #Gospel #HonkyTonk #CountryClassic #RonjasCountryMusic #CountryMusic
