Ryan Stinson performs an original Southern gospel song "Someone Greater Than I" with a classic feel. Gospel Music Hall of Famer Jeff Hullender (Gold City Quartet) joins him for the classic harmonies on the song. Stinson is a Share America Scholar and he graduated from Luther Rice University with a degree in Religion/Ministry and he lives in Ringgold. He has
played piano since the age of 10 and began singing about three years ago. His talents have allowed him to perform on WSM and theaters around the south including special appearances at the Texas Troubadour Theater in Nashville, the Tribute Theater, Country Tonite Theater, and Smoky Mountain Opry Theater in Pigeon Forge, Graceland in Memphis, festivals, concerts and churches.
"'Someone Greater Than I' is a gospel song with a very simple message. It brings attention to all of the small details of God's creation, serving as a reminder of the supernatural nature of the world and the One who created it." Ryan Stinson
"This is a song I have wanted to find the right performer to sing for years. I have always loved the lyrics and bringing in Ryan to add to the melody gave it just the right feel that I think listeners will connect with." Randall Franks
"It has been a joy to work alongside Randall on this project. I have a couple of original tunes on the CD that I'm really excited about, and I think everyone will enjoy the variety of songs contributed by all of the artists on the album." Ryan Stinson
