Gaither Tribute Album, Featuring Reba McEntire, Ronnie Dunn + More Out Now

The Gaither Tribute album is out! Gaither Tribute: Honoring the Songs of Bill & Gloria Gaither, featuring Reba McEntireRonnie Dunn, Hillary Scott & The Scott FamilyJosh TurnerRonnie MilsapAlabama with The Oak Ridge Boys and more, was released on Friday, August 25.

“It’s just so surreal to be asked to be a part of a project like this and to honor people like Bill and Gloria Gaither,” Turner, who sings “Going Home,” says. “Growing up in a Baptist church their songs have been a part of my life from day one.”

Dunn said he performed his song, “Because He Lives,” in honor of his mother, while McEntire, who sings both “He Touched Me” and “Something Beautiful” with one of her siblings and her former tour openers, was thrilled to combine her talents with others.

“It’s such an honor to get to sing not one, but two of Bill and Gloria Gaither’s special songs with my sister Susie and Sonya and Becky Isaacs,” McEntire says.

Alabama and The Oak Ridge Boys sing on “Jesus and John Wayne,” a rare opportunity for the two legendary acts to combine their talents.

“It was so exciting to record with Alabama,” The Oak Ridge Boys’ Duane Allen says. “We have all grown up together in the music business and they are some of our very best friends. To record ‘Jesus and John Wayne’ with Alabama, a song written by Bill and Gloria Gaither, is a perfect way to combine the voices and careers of both groups and the writers of this song.

“We all grew up loving Jesus, and as little boys (we are still little boys at heart!), we also loved John Wayne,” he adds. “I hope you enjoy listening as much as we enjoyed singing with Alabama.”
