Nashville, TN (January 31, 2012) —- eOne Christian Music is happy to announce the release of Twila Parisâ€™ new project, God Shed His Grace â€“ Songs Of Truth And Freedom, on February 28, 2012.Â Paris personally selected the thirteen songs that are featured on the new CD, eleven from previous albums and two newly recorded patriotic hymns, God Of Our Fathers and America The Beautiful.Â The music is timeless as it addresses the hope and struggle of Christians, as they pray their way through a darkened world.Â Paris hopes the CD will be seen as her support for her fellow Americans during this critical time in our countryâ€™s history. â€œI was brought up to be a patriot, grateful to be an American and born into this land of blessing,â€ says Paris.Â â€œLately, it seems our country is running away from its true foundation, but I believe a growing number of Americans are praying and working for a return to the principles that made this nation great. The songs Iâ€™ve selected for this CD were written against a backdrop of dramatic changes in our society since the 1980â€™s. Some were inspired by current events, and some were more personal.Â These songs, old and new, are for the faithful Americans who are living in obedience to God, and know that His holy breath will once again be guiding our sails.â€Paris has been described as one of modern inspirational musicâ€™s most prolific singer-songwriters, which is very evident on her self-penned tune, True North.Â The lyrics ring with a reality that is still so apparent these days; We lost our bearings following our own mind/We left conviction behind/Fear of the future springing from the sins of the past/Hiding the hope that would last/How did we ever wander so far and where do we go from here?/How will we know where it is?Â Parisâ€™ GMA Song Of The Year, God Is In Control, resonates with Biblical clarity; This is no time for fear/This is a time for faith and determination/Don’t lose the vision here/Carried away by the motion/Hold on to all that you hide in your heart.Â And what better words for Americaâ€™s future than through God Of Our Fathers; Thy love divine hath led us in the past/In this free land by Thee our lot is cast/Be Thou our Ruler, Guardian, Guide and Stay/Thy Word our law, Thy paths our chosen way. Paris will be taking her message of faith and hope to live audiences in March and April, when she joins Steve Green, Wayne Watson and Michael Card on the Christian Classic Tour that launches on March 29th.Â For further updates on Paris please visit her website at www.twilaparis.com.About Twila ParisWhen Paris first entered the national Christian music scene in 1980, she started an incredible musical journey that includes; releasing 23 albums (including God Shed His Grace â€“ Songs Of Truth And Freedom), 33 #1 singles, over 1.3 million albums sold, 10-time Dove Award winning artist including 3 years for Female Vocalist of the Year, 30 Dove nominations, and several featured songs in church hymnals across the country.Â Born in Ft.
