We told you last week that Wade Bowen will release a Gospel album. Well that album comes out on Friday. The album is called Then Sings My Soul…Songs For My Mother and is co-produced by Wade and his singer/songwriter friend Sean McConnell.

The Texas/Americana singer/songwriter says the idea came from his father,

“My dad came to me a few years ago and really wanted me to record a gospel album. It sounded like a fun idea but I didn’t put much thought into it because my schedule was so crazy busy. This past year he came to me again and asked if I would finally make the album so we could give it to my mother for a combination 70th birthday and Christmas present.“

The album was originally going to be just a gift for his mother, her friends and family, but with such great response and positive feedback, Bowen says he decided to release the album for his fans.

“I am at such a good spot in my career right now with a lot of freedom, so this felt like the perfect time to release such a meaningful project.”

The album will contain 12 tracks and feature new twists on standards “Amazing Grace”, “Old Rugged Cross”, “I’ll Fly Away” and other songs.

You can pre-order the album now in iTunes. If you plan on getting it Concho Valley, let us know and sound off in the below comment section.
