The Cockman Family is one of the more influential bluegrass gospel groups throughout North Carolina and surrounding states. Over the years, they’ve garnished many awards for their unique and sincere approach to gospel music.

“All About Love” is the Cockmans’ latest in a series of unparalleled recordings. The dozen selections are a nice mix of gospel favorites and original material. Seven tracks were penned by various family members, some of which were inspired by sermons given by their church pastor. Caroline Cockman-Fisher (vocals) and Billy Cockman (banjo, guitar, and vocals) share the lead vocals on the inspirational “God Is Watching Over Me,” “The Wheel,” and “The Living God.” Also featured are interpretations of the gospel favorites “Angel Band,” “I Shall Not Be Moved,” and an instrumental version of “Power In The Blood.”

The album closes with a “Patriotic Medley” that includes stirring renditions of “The Battle Hymn Of The Republic,” “America,” and others. “All About Love” is bluegrass gospel at its finest—another momentous milestone for the Cockman Family.
