Warner Bros.' Christian division, Word, has had tremendous success with Randy Travis' two gospel albums. The eager audience that embraced Travis' efforts will be well-served by this superb new collection of country gospel songs by Cyrus. His strong, warm baritone breathes life into these faith-filled songs with honest emotion and heartfelt passion. Cyrus penned the title track, a glorious tribute to the riches of heaven. For the other cuts, he relies on some of Nashville's top writers, including Victoria Shaw and Austin Cunningham. "Always Sixteen" celebrates the power of enduring love; "I Need You Now" is a poignant portrait of Jesus Christ. "Face of God," "I Love You This Much" and a soulful cover of "Amazing Grace" are among the other standouts on this appealing record that should interest fans of country and Christian music.—DEP
