Today is a beautiful Sunday fall day in the beautiful rural
state of Iowa.  Even though I am preparing the itinerary as I head with
my family to the south for winter (mostly because we can’t afford a
furnace in the Oak Tree performance center, which is where our small
apartment is), I still have the opportunity to listen to a great CD
recorded by Chuck Hancock, who makes his home in Florida.  Although this
CD starts out with a bit of a honky-tonk sound, it changes rapidly as
Chuck takes us through a remarkable listening experience of some new and
some old Christian gospel songs.  He makes it clear to all of us that
he has had the ups and downs of finding life on the side of ‘good’ and
he also makes it clear that his soul now belongs to none other than
Jesus Christ.  He also used some remarkable backing musicians.  Nathan
Emerson opens the first song with a very nice old-style pedal steel
guitar style that sets the mode for all the following songs.  I
especially enjoyed Glen Duncan on fiddle, banjo, and mandolin.  He’s an
old friend from the Ozarks, as is Terry Beene, who makes his Ozarks
Awards at Branson annually.  It’s Mr. Hancock however who stands out
strong and able throughout this very nice listening experience.  I also
enjoyed hearing Leona Williams (another old friend) as she joins him on
“The Old Rugged Cross.”  This very obviously shows us how Mr. Hancock
has had to go through his own ups and downs in the music world, and
perhaps the real world as well.  Thoroughly enjoyed this second album by
Mr. Hancock, off it goes to the Rural Roots Music Commission.
