ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
It was the 1800s, the dawn of a new age. America was moving Westward. The best and worst of times lay ahead, as families braved the trip to new frontiers. And in these uncertain times, they found strength in their Faith. As towns were settled, generations of families gathered together in prayer and gave thanks to the Lord by singing hymns.

The hymns in this album were performed for the Armed Forces Radio Service in the mid 1940s - early 1950s, appearing on Western variety programs. Shows like the Ranch House Party, Melody Roundup and Carolina Cotton Calls often included a moment of hymn singing. They were among the most requested by the military personnel who enjoyed these shows.

Many of these songs of praise have endured the decades. In today's world, these hymns are as timeless and meaningful as they were many years ago. 

Song details are listed below. Most of these tunes include harmonies from The Yodeling Blonde Bombshell, Carolina Cotton, who was a performer on many of these radio shows. If you listen closely, you may hear her blending in with the group's backing vocals.
