How Sweet The Sound - 25 Favorite Hymns And Gospel Greats
was nominated for the 2003 Grammy Awards for Best Southern, Country Or Bluegrass Gospel Album.
Country-rock fiddler Charlie Daniels leads his band through two CDs of religious music on How Sweet the Sound: 25 Favorite Hymns and Gospel Greats. Backed by a full choir, Daniels' gruff road dog image is nowhere to be found on this collection, but stripped-down gems like "Softly and Tenderly" or the bluegrass infused "I'll Fly Away" are tucked in among the big production numbers. ~ Zac Johnson
