Carrie Underwood Releases ‘Softly and Tenderly’ From ‘My Savior’: LISTEN

Carrie Underwood recently revealed the songs included on her upcoming gospel album, My Savior.. The 13-track project, which follows her 2020 My Gift Christmas album, is filled with hymns she grew up singing as a child, and still mean something to her today.

“This is an album I have always wanted to record,” Underwood said of the project. “When I set out to choose these songs, I wanted to include the beautiful, familiar hymns I grew up singing in church. There are several songs I have performed in the past, like ‘Softly And Tenderly,’ ‘How Great Thou Art’ and ‘Amazing Grace’ that mean so much to me and I knew immediately we needed to record for the album.

“This music shaped who I am as a person and is the foundation of my career as a recording artist,” she continued. “I feel so blessed to get to share these songs with generations of people who love them as I do, as well as others who might be experiencing them for the first time.”

Underwood previously said that she had the idea to record My Savior while in the studio for My Gift, feeling that now, more than ever, people needed music that gave them hope.

“Both of those projects were bucket list projects for me,” Underwood told PEOPLE.. “With everything I do, I just want to be positive. And we had the Christmas album, which was so near and dear to my heart.”

“Last year was a tough year for everybody, and I think just wanting to be positive in this world and sing these songs that bring me so much joy, hopefully, others can be like that as well and these songs can bring others joy,” she continued. “That goes back with everything that I do … I just want to do positive things.”
