Following the extraordinary success of her recent Christmas album, My Gift, seven-time GRAMMY® Award winner Carrie Underwood has today released an album of gospel hymns, titled My Savior. My Savior is co-produced by Underwood and GRAMMY® Award winner David Garcia, with whom she co-produced her critically acclaimed 2018 album Cry Pretty, her seventh album which peaked at #4 on the ARIA Albums Chart.
My Savior, consists of covers of traditional gospel hymns Underwood grew up singing (tracklist below), is a spiritual companion to Underwood’s first-ever Christmas album. “It’s been such a blessing to make music like this, inspirational music that is near and dear to my heart,” says Underwood. “These two albums have been on my musical bucket list since the beginning of my career and were planned long before the events of the past year, but somehow it feels like the perfect time to share these beloved songs with the world.”
Underwood’s co-producer on My Savior, David Garcia, is a multi-platinum selling, four-time GRAMMY® Award-winning record producer and songwriter. With his early roots in Christian music, over the past decade he has achieved chart-topping success across multiple genres of music with over 20 US #1 songs to his credit. He has twice been named ASCAP’s Christian Music Songwriter of the Year (2015 and 2019), has written three ASCAP Award winners for Christian Music Song of The Year, as well as won nine Dove Awards. In addition to co-producing the Cry Pretty album, Garcia and Underwood’s collaborations include co-writing tracks such as ‘Southbound’ with Josh Miller, ‘Drinking Alone and Love Wins with Brett James, as well as the original tracks ‘Let There Be Peace’ and ‘Sweet Baby Jesus’ with Brett James’ on My Gift, among others.
My Gift featured a combination of beloved traditional favourites celebrating the spiritual nature of the holiday, as well as several new originals, including the two written by Underwood, Garcia and James. GRAMMY® Award-winning producer, mixer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, Greg Wells produced and arranged the album.
