The Watkins Family - Heaven's Worth Waiting For

THE WATKINS FAMILY
HEAVEN’S WORTH WAITING FOR
Watkins Family Music
No Number

Bluegrass, gospel, and country music blend together for this beautiful new collection of songs from the Watkins Family. With the loss of dearly departed patriarch, Don, the family faithfully moves forward with its ministry of music. Mother, Judy (vocals), and children, Todd (guitar, resonator guitar, and bass), Shanon (bass and fiddle), and Lorie (banjo, mandolin, and guitar), share their splendid harmonies in this 11-track mixture of ballad and up-tempo songs.

Nominated Best Contemporary and Traditional Bluegrass Gospel Group by SPBGMA, the Watkins Family is equally adept with hard-driving bluegrass as well as with the piano-laced number “To Know You More.” Familiar names in bluegrass circles, Stuart Duncan (fiddle, cello, and mandolin) and Bryan Sutton (guitar, mandolin, and banjo) are two of the musicians enlisted for the project. Dr. Jerry Falwell introduces “Sometimes You Gotta Rock The Boat” to the backdrop of stormy sound effects.

While the entire CD is a non-stop blessing of listening pleasure, thumbs up from me go to “She’s Working On Her Testimony” and “What Love Has Grown.” (Watkins Family, P.O. Box 294, Eastonlice, GA 30538, www.watkinsfamilymusic.com.) BC
