Doyle Lawson is one of the more prolific recording artists on the bluegrass scene today. His latest, an all bluegrass gospel album, comes hot on the heels of the very well-received, "You Gotta Dig A Little Deeper."

What makes bluegrass gospel music so enjoyable is the vocals. No one does this better than DL&Q. This album contains all the vocal elements fans expect from a Quicksilver gospel album: strong leads (Jamie Dailey and Barry Scott), tight group harmonies, intricate vocal interplays and, of course, a couple of a capella numbers, "Til I See You Face To Face" and the closing number, "When He Welcomes Me In."

As always, the material is sincere and fresh. None of the songs are gospel 'warhorses,' rather they are band originals like Barry Scott's, "We Shall Inherit" or treasures that Lawson takes from lesser-known songwriters.

Despite some recent personnel changes, this gospel recording is unmistakably Doyle Lawson and Quicksilver. Fans won't be disappointed. It's one of the group's best ever!!
