Seven-time GRAMMY® Award winner Carrie Underwood has given us a preview of her new Gospel album My Savior with the release of her duet with CeCe Winans on "Great Is Thy Faithfulness." Listen to the song HERE.
Underwood and Winans trade verses in this collaboration, their voices and the accompanying piano building throughout to a crescendo as they swap lines in the final verse: "Great is Thy faithfulness! / Great is Thy faithfulness! / Morning by morning, new mercies I see / All I have needed, Thy hand hath provided / Great is Thy faithfulness! / Great is Thy faithfulness! / Great is Thy faithfulness, Lord unto me!"
My Savior is co-produced and arranged by Underwood and GRAMMY® Award winner David Garcia, with whom she co-produced her critically acclaimed 2018 album Cry Pretty, her seventh album to be certified Platinum or Multi-Platinum by the RIAA. Garcia is a multi-platinum selling, four-time GRAMMY® Award-winning record producer and songwriter. With his early roots in Christian music, over the past decade he has achieved chart-topping success across multiple genres of music with over 20 #1 songs to his credit. He has twice been named ASCAP's Christian Music Songwriter of the Year (2015 and 2019), has written three ASCAP Award winners for Christian Music Song of The Year, as well as won nine Dove Awards.
"This is an album I have always wanted to record. When I set out to choose these songs, I wanted to include the beautiful, familiar hymns I grew up singing in church," says Underwood. "There are several songs I have performed in the past, like 'Softly And Tenderly,' 'How Great Thou Art' and 'Amazing Grace' that mean so much to me and I knew immediately we needed to record for the album. This music shaped who I am as a person and is the foundation of my career as a recording artist. I feel so blessed to get to share these songs with generations of people who love them as I do, as well as others who might be experiencing them for the first time."
