Chuck Wagon Gang are back with their brand new album Radio Days, which will be released on August 13. The album finds the team tipping theit hats to their roots. Bookended by a handful of new recordings, the Gang recreates some of the classic songs from the golden era of their radio days .The result is Radio Days, a collection that expands the vintage experience into a full-length recording.
One of the album's highlights is the gospel track "Holy Be Thy Name," a track that is dear to the team. "Holy Be Thy Great Name" is one of those songs that was a unanimous choice of the entire group as we chose songs for this new album," Chuck Wagon Gang's leader Shaye Smith reveals.
"It comes from deep in the archives of the Chuck Wagon Gang and is a song we wanted to revive for the fans because many of them have probably never heard it before. The tight harmonies and changing tempos make it fun to sing, but the lyrics are the key. 'Holy be Thy matchless name...Hallelujah, Amen!' It was like finding a brand new praise and worship song from 1930!! We hope folks enjoy this really unique song!"
"Fans have inquired for years if we had the old radio show on CD," Shaye Smith continues. "I am so excited to have this album to present to them! We've given quite an effort to 'duplicate' the original Bewley Mills radio programs from the 1930s-1950s. I hope those who listen can envision families from those by-gone days sitting in their living rooms, gathered around the old battery powered radio, listening to the Chuck Wagon Gang at noon after a hard day's work in the fields! This is truly a reflection of who we, as the Chuck Wagon Gang, truly are. We are proud and humbled by our history and hope fans will feel they know us a little better after listening to this new recording."
