Best Album Openers: “Home”

Lets start a new week by taking a look at another of Southern Gospel’s best album openers.

That opening song on an album sets the tone for the entire recording.  It is even more important when the artist is recording a live album.

This week’s best album opener comes from the Singing Americans’s highly acclaimed 1984 live recording, Live And Alive.  Michael English first recorded this song when performing with the Goodmans.  They were the first to record the song in 1982 (Chosen).

“Home” sets the tone for the rest of the album, which many historians rank as one of the best Southern Gospel albums ever recorded.  The song was a collaboration from the pens of Rusty Goodman, Tanya Goodman Sykes and Aaron Wilburn.
