Reflecting on the album, Mandrell shares, "When I recorded this album in 1989, I chose a group of songs that I grew up listening to and singing. They are songs that I still cherish to this day. It's an honor and thrill to think that 35 years later, this music will have the opportunity to touch a new generation of fans. I'm so thankful the folks at Gaither believe in this record as much today as I did back then."
