This incredible bluegrass-gospel family band from Fall
Branch, Tennessee, was awarded the “Vintage Gospel CD of the Year” last
year at LeMars, Iowa, for their CD “Armed & Ready.”  This new CD is a
remarkable re-invention of their incredible gift of music.  This family
has devoted their energies and abilities to the Lord Jesus Christ in
all they do. The second song on this one “It Is Better Farther On” is
one of those close-harmony songs that only families can do, and in this
case acapella, meaning without musical instruments.  They play the
‘normal’ instruments of bluegrass music, but their gospel music really
excels on this very likable CD.   They also offer several other acapella
numbers, “Vision Of Jacob’s Ladder” another remarkable presentation of
true faith and a sincere dedication to the Lord Jesus Christ. If you
like ‘bluegrass’ music you will love the Knight Family.  The banjo does
not however, take center stage constantly as much of bluegrass does
portray.  Rather it is a very nice complimentary musical instrument
presentation, a combination that works very well for this wonderful
family that is keeping alive the very ‘heart’ of gospel music.  This
down-home honest and sincere music, is truly enjoyable to not only
listen to, but to obviously know they too, are also enjoying creating
this wonderful music very much.  This CD of course is going to the Rural
Roots Music Commission.   I know they have not received any other
applications from any other group that would qualify as ‘vintage
gospel,’ so my hopes are high for the Knight Family.  You will enjoy, as
I do, the many variations of the music instruments they play.  Fiddle,
banjo, Dobro, mandolin, guitar, acoustic bass (the tempo and acoustic
sound here is explicit and sounds wonderful). Recorded in Knoxville and
Bristol, Tennessee, it is a special adventure to return to Bristol, the
home of the big-bang of country music, where Jimmie Rodgers and the
Carter Family made their first recordings in this same town.  Much
congratulations to the Knight Family, of Tennessee, for a wonderful job
well done on this truly inspiring gospel CD.
