Bobby Flores has recorded another wonderful CD. This time the theme is 11 beautiful inspirational sounds with Bobby heard doing vocals, guitar and of course on fiddle. In addition, he even plays steel guitar on two of the cuts, Charles Goodman’s Who Am I and a thrilling instrumental version of the classic gem America the Beautiful. The other album steel guitarists are the late Randy Reinhard on seven of the cuts and Tommy Detamore who plays steel on one cut.

The album opens with Dottie Rambo’s Just Build My Mansion. Other cuts from Dottie’s pen are Remind Me Dear Lord and Sheltered in the Arms of God. Also included is the gospel classic Amazing Grace with The Wiggins on background vocal. They also back Bobby on the classic sacred gem How Great Thou Art. Another gem is Albert Brumley’s I’ll Fly Away. Mary Jane Flores joins Bobby for a duet on What a Day That Will Be and Laura Weber White joins him on In the Garden. The remaining cut is the beautiful ballad Empty Hands.
