There’s something about Southern Gospel I really
like.  Actually Rodney Morss’s album might not even be labeled Southern
Gospel, he lives in Galesburg, Illinois.  More accurately this CD is a
tremendous testimony to Jesus Christ, our Savior.  Rodney has no problem
stating what he believes, and it’s up-tempo, its a little bit rock and
roll, it’s a whole lot sincere.  I really really like gospel music that
comes from a sincere heart.  I’ve heard some that is simply a means to
make money, and it doesn’t sit well with me.  Rodney Morss on the other
hand, is a ‘Gospel’ singer.  He admits he doesn’t have all the answers,
but he’s certainly willing to try to find them which he so adequately
tells us in the very first song. This is a fast moving and tremendously
moving testimony to Christ.  The selection of songs is also very
important to Rodney.  He picks songs he not only can sing well, he picks
songs that he believes in, very much so.  His past is similar to many
young people who have picked up the Cross of Christ.  Rodney was one of
those into drugs, liquor, hard living, hard not living, and finally
found his way out of it all on a hospital bed when he was visited by
Jesus Christ.  Rodney has a very very good voice, a very very good voice
for Jesus.  In today’s world where Islamic Terrorists believe their
only way to heaven is by the destruction of Christians, don’t you
sometimes move aside the hate that comes upon us, and feel incredible
sorrow for anyone who would believe that kind of doctrine.  That’s what
Rodney Morss is really all about.  Getting the message out about the
eternal peace and love of Jesus Christ.  Rodney establishes his ministry
in one short paragraph.  “We seek to improve the well being of those
around us.  We actively serve through music the Message of Hope…
Mercy…. and Deliverance to those who will listen and hear the voice of
the Savior.”  One of my favorite musicians, Glen Duncan is on this
project playing fiddle, banjo, and mandolin.  Scott Sanders on steel,
Duncan Mullins on bass, Kelly Back on guitar, Ricky Free on drums, and
Jonathan Brown on keyboard.  I hear an occasional reference in the
guitar picking that is very reminiscent of Jerry Reed.  Super good
album, just right for those who like their Gospel music a little
country, a little rock, a little Southern style, a little traditional,
this is it.  We’ll be forwarding it to the Rural Roots Music Commission
for their perusal, I’m thinking they’ll like it too.
