At one point in time, almost every Country musician performed Gospel songs and/or released a gospel album. With the exception of a few musicians, that tradition has largely become a thing of the past.
Alan Jackson, however, stayed true to that tradition with his album “Precious Memories.”
On the album, and for subsequent concerts, Jackson performed some of Gospel music’s most beloved classics, including: “Blessed Assurance,” “Softly and Tenderly,” “Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus,” “Are You Washed in the Blood” and “I’ll Fly Away” – just to name a few.
Here, Jackson gives a live performance of “Are You Washed in the Blood” and “I’ll Fly Away.”
His performance and album are such a gift to lovers of both Country and Gospel music.
