Latest in Series Includes Distribution Through Word Entertainment and Curb Records, Plus a National TV Campaign with Time Life Music and an Exclusive Cracker Barrel Release
The latest in the hit Country Faith music series, Country Faith Volume 2, will release on November 18 to Christian retail through Word Entertainment and to mainstream retail and digital outlets through Curb Records.
Based on the popular book Country Faith penned by award-winning author/journalist Deborah Evans Price, the new music project will feature faith-based country songs by Luke Bryan, Brad Paisley, George Strait, Brooks and Dunn, Wynonna, Wade Hayes, LeAnn Rimes and other bestselling Country artists.
“I’m so excited about this collection of songs on Country Faith Volume 2,” says Evans Price. “The album opens with ‘Pray About Everything,’ Luke Bryan’s upbeat celebration of the power of prayer, and the project continues with such compelling songs of faith as Brad Paisley’s ‘When I Get Where I’m Going,’ Wade Hayes’ ‘What’s a Broken Heart for You,’ Brooks & Dunn’s ‘Believe,’ and many others. Country artists/songwriters have a unique perspective on faith and God’s grace, and I think listeners will find a great deal of comfort and inspiration in these powerful songs.”
Rod Riley, President & CEO, Word Entertainment, shares, “The opportunity for Word Entertainment to be part of curating a beautiful collection of songs from some of the biggest and most legendary artists in country music, alongside the passionate brilliance and direction of Deborah Evans Price, results in something that I know is going to positively impact countless lives.”
