That opening song on an album sets the tone for the entire recording. There are times when that opening song turns into a career record for an artist.
That is the case with this week’s best album opener. “He’s Still Working On Me” comes from the Hemphills 1980 recording, Workin’. Not only did the song spend a ton of time at #1 on the Southern Gospel radio singles chart, but it would go on to be the Hemphills biggest song with listeners.
As was the case with nearly every song the Hemphills recorded in their career, “He’s Still Working On Me” was penned by Joel Hemphill.
