From the Grand Ole Opry to Radio City and beyond, country music is sweeping the globe. But country is more than just the new sound of America; many of its artists are also capturing audiences with their faith-inspired spirit. Yes, Lord, I’m Comin’ Home! presents these heart-warming true stories about faith and renewal, from some of today’s hottest country stars and legends of the past as they reveal the tragedy and triumph of their spiritual journeys. With startling honesty and emotional vulnerability, superstars like Naomi Judd, Barbara Mandrell, and Donna Fargo tell how they turned to faith to sustain them through discouragement, depression, and their darkest hours. Others, like Marty Raybon of Shenandoah, B. J. Thomas, Glen Campbell, and Steve Gatlin lived a life of drug and alcohol abuse until it all came crashing down. There are also moving stories behind the beautiful voices of Doug Stone, Ricky Lynn Gregg, and Louise Mandrell, who offer personal and passionate glimpses of their lives–and faith.In Yes, Lord, I’m Comin’ Home!, a show-stopping list of country music legends and superstars share their joy of coming to know God. Artists such as Ferlin Husky, Penny DeHaven, John Berry, Rick Trevino, Toby Keith, Mark Collie, Susie Luchsinger, Paul Overstreet, Ken Holloway, MidSouth’s Kent Humphrey, Deborah Allen, Brian Barrett, and Joy Lynn White radiate with their love of God.
