NASHVILLE, Tenn.â€”Love, the latest studio recording from one of Gospel musicâ€™s most beloved families, The Hagees, bows June 10 from Difference Media (Capitol Christian Distribution). Produced by multi-Dove Award winner Aaron Crabb (Aaron & Amanda Crabb, Canton Junction), the 12-song set features original selections as well as new arrangements of timeless favorites.
Highlights of Love include the classic, â€œPrecious Lord, Take My Hand,â€ featuring Pastor John Hagee, group patriarch and world-renowned evangelist; the contemporary country â€œWhen Love Comes To Townâ€ (feat. Matthew Hagee); â€œThatâ€™s What Love Looks Likeâ€ (feat. Sandy Parker); the powerful affirmation of â€œIâ€™ll Never Leave Youâ€ (feat. Tina Ketterling); and the Dottie Rambo-penned â€œIâ€™ve Never Been This Homesick Before,â€ also featuring Pastor John Hagee and showcasing guest vocals from Dove Award-winning quartet Canton Junction.
The Hageesâ€™ Sandy Parker says of the albumâ€™s overarching theme, â€œThe song â€˜Thatâ€™s What Love Looks Likeâ€™ is a poignant tune about different types of love: the love of a spouse, the love of a mother, the love of a Savior. Ultimately, love is what we feel for each other as a family, our music is a labor of love, and we sing about a Savior who loves us more than we could ask, hope or imagine. Love encapsulates all of that, and I hope the project communicates the same to its listeners. To know that someone may experience the love of God as a result of listening to our music is a humbling thing that feeds my soul.”
â€œIt is always the most fun to sing with my family,” she adds. “No matter how old we get or how many kids we have, at the end of the day when we sing together, everything else goes away and itâ€™s just my dad, my siblings and me singing about Jesus.â€
