With the most #1 hits in Southern Gospel history,
a dedicated following, and a faithful message for
the masses, The McKameys’ great music and
unwavering dedication to the Lord
have stood the test of time.
Now, as this legacy artist announces they
will no longer be touring full-time after
this fall, we are fortunate to look back on
their illustrious recording and performing
career with a nostalgia that has marked
the lives of fans and listeners of Southern
Gospel Music. In a way like no other, The
McKameys have brought their anointed
message of faithfulness and the power of
the Gospel to the world. With The Crown,
they deliver that message again, and it is
exceptionally special at this point in their
decades-long career.
“We are very excited about our 54th
project entitled The Crown. God has
blessed us with great songs in the past
and this project is no exception,” The
McKameys say.
The album begins with the sweet four-part
harmonies of “We All Need A Savior.”
Featuring the lead vocals of Sheryl Farris,
this song tells of accepting Jesus as your
savior and finding answers to life’s
The Crown continues with several songs
that evoke the spirit of hymns sung from
church pews. From the inspired writing
of Rebecca Peck, “You Must Be Born
Again” features the group’s matriarch Peg
McKamey Bean and beckons the sinner to
“Cleanse Me,” an old hymn, is a heartfelt
cry for a renewal in our relationship with
Christ. Performed in a rich 4-part harmony,
it’s an alter invitation and musical prayer
to free ourselves from wickedness and
cleanse us from sins.
It’s followed by “Go Back And Pray,”
another traditional hymn that features
Ruben Bean with a call and response
chorus. Led by acoustic instruments, this
song with bluegrass flavor evokes a scene
of an old country church.
The album brings moments of stillness
with emotional ballads. Featuring Peg,
“The Holy Spirit Prayed,” tells of the Holy
Spirit stepping in when the words for
prayer can’t be found. With a smooth lead
from Eli Fortner, “God Is Good” is also
emotionally stirring in its simplicity of just
one voice and a piano.
“Heavy,” featuring Roger Fortner, tells
how the burdens of life can lead to a dark
mindset, but with God, that load can be
lifted and carried for us. The song, with its
quiet moments, encourages reflection on
life and how steadfast belief in God can
change it for the better.
The upbeat, mid-tempo “Don’t Forget”
reminds that God will help guide us to
Heaven if we keep the faith. The album’s
title track, “The Crown,” features Connie
Fortner, and is about glorifying Jesus. The
song speaks to personal faith and finding
a home alongside Jesus in Heaven.
The Crown closes with “From Dust To
Glory,” the album’s first radio single
that tells a story of life after death and a
man whose purpose was rebuilt by God.
Written by Sheryl Farris, it sings,
“From dust to glory, a purpose revealed.
Transformed by His power; Oh, to be just
like Him.
An unbelievable story and yet it’s so real.
From dust to glory, another promise
From the mountain sounds of ‘Go Back
And Pray’ to the classic sounds of ‘You
Must Be Born Again’; with ‘From Dust To
Glory,’ the story of every Christian, to the
reminder that ‘God Is Good,’ and all the
songs in between...God has surely put His
touch on this project and we are grateful!”
The McKameys say.
