SMYRNA, Tenn. â€“ (September 30, 2010) â€“ Middle Tennesseeâ€™s beloved family group The Quicks have embraced the hope and message of Gospel music with their new recording â€“ Hymns. Hymns, an album two years in the making, features songs that had a profound impact on the group during what was perhaps the most trying time of their lives.
Sally Quick of The Quicks said, â€œHymns albums are usually recorded and spat out in a matter of months or even weeks for most other groups. So, why did it take us two years to make this CD? Life.â€
Taking suggestions from friends of The Quicks, they chose the titles and even recorded the tracks long before the group suffered a very personal family tragedy â€“ putting the album on hold until they could gain a sense of normalness back in their lives. Each of these songs took on a whole new meaning for the group as they reeled back from the dark fog of their unexpected loss.
â€œWe found a peace in these songs that we hadnâ€™t found elsewhere,â€ mentioned Tim Quick. â€œWe are just amazed at how God ordered our paths to such detail that he knew what songs we needed to record after our loss.â€
Sally commented, â€œOur family is learning to live again, to smile again, and yes, even laugh again. The beauty of the sun shining through the rain is an amazing sight. Weâ€™ve witnessed God letting His Son shine through our tears. This recording features songs that helped us see the Son again.â€
Hymns was produced and arranged by group members Sally and Becca Quick. Songs included on the album are such favorites as â€œI Surrender All,â€ â€œBe Still My Soul,â€ â€œIn the Garden,â€ â€œLove Lifted Me,â€ â€œTis So Sweet,â€ â€œIt Is Well,â€ and many more.
Hymns is now available on The Quicksâ€™ website or at concert events.
