ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"Sing About Jesus", the new Country Gospel release by acclaimed recording artist/songwriter/actor Ed Bruce. Ed wrote "Mammas Don't Let Your Babies Grow Up To Be Cowboys" and recently appeared in Public Enemies with Johnny Depp. Read Ed's note and biography below. God bless...

A note from Ed:
It is amazing, the many different ways in which God chooses to reveal Himself to us. Saul was on the road to Damascus when the Lord slapped him up beside the head. I was on a 383 Massey-Ferguson tractor. Unlike Saul, I didn't have to wait three days for the scales to fall from my eyes. There was immediate recognition. His path was brilliantly lit for me and I have not been the same since. With the epiphany, came the realization that all the good things that had happened to me in my life were not necessarily my fault. All Praise and Glory to Him! I began to pray for direction and guidance. What had He been saving me for? How was I to use the gift with which He had blessed me? How could I repay Him for all His many blessings? Over the years friends had suggested I record a "Gospel Album". Frankly, I had not felt worthy to do so. Without conviction, how could such a project be blessed? But, now, with my rebirth and wrapped in His love and Everlasting Arms, my life has purpose.

Ed's Biography:
With a string of hits, both as an artist and a writer, Ed Bruce has maintained a successful career for more than four decades. "Mamma's Don't Let Your Babies Grow Up To Be Cowboys", "After All", "Girls, Women and Ladies", "When You Fall In Love Everything's A Waltz", "My First Taste of Texas", "Ever, Never Loving You", "The Last Cowboy Song", and the "Theme from Bret Maverick" are just a few of the self-penned hit songs from this great artist. Then there's "Texas When I Die" and "The Man That Turned My Mama On" which were giant hits for Tanya Tucker - and the list goes on.

Ed was born on December 29, 1939 in Keiser, Arkansas. Early on, the family moved to Memphis and he claims Tennessee as his home. Ed started writing songs in his early teens and, in the late 1950's, he first recorded, as Edwin Bruce, on the famed Sun Records label while a senior in high school. His label-mates included Jerry Lee Lewis, Charlie Rich and Johnny Cash. Writing the B-side of Tommy Roe's million seller "Sheila" furnished funds and motivation for Ed to move to Nashville in 1962. A year later CMA Hall-of-Famer Charlie Louvin recorded "See The Big Man Cry". It earned Ed his first BMI award and Charlie credits the song with establishing him as a solo artist.

He returned to Memphis for a brief period but was back on Music Row in 1966, this time for good. Along with songwriting, Ed found work as a background singer. Kenny Price soon recorded Ed's song, "Northeast Arkansas Mississippi County Bootlegger".

In the late 1960's, Ed recorded for RCA and Monument Records, releasing the singles "Song For Ginny" and "Everybody Wants To Get To Heaven". In 1973 he inked a new deal with United Artists and had another charting single with "July Your A Woman". Ed's songs continued to be recorded by others. "Restless" was a hit for Crystal Gayle in 1974. Also, during this time, Ed spent four years hosting an early morning TV show on Nashville WSM.

Willie Nelson and Waylon Jennings released a duet version of Ed's song "Mammas..." in 1978. The song had previously been a chart-climber for Ed in 1975. This time it went to the top and the lyrics became indelibly written on the minds of millions. It was nominated for Grammy and CMA awards. It won a Grammy. Also that year, "Texas When I Die", recorded by Tanya Tucker, was nominated for Grammy and CMA Awards.

Ed had success yet again with "The Last Cowboy Song", a poignant tribute to the passing of the American cowboy and his way of life. It seems only fitting that Willie Nelson would lend his voice to the song, released in 1980. More hits would soon follow.

In addition to performing and writing, Ed also has a very successful acting career. He appeared in the CBS mini-series "The Chisolms" with Robert Preston, the NBC movie "The Return of Frank and Jesse James" and, of course, was the co-star of "Bret Maverick" with James Garner. He appeared as Sgt. Daryl Kelso in the CBS Movie of the Week "Separated by Murder" and as Attorney Harlan Hayes in the pilot episode of "XXX's & OOO's", produced in Nashville. Other star turns include the pragmatic Sheriff Lloyd in the Steven Segal feature "Fire Down Below"; Thunder Malloy in the "Walker Texas Ranger" inspired "Son's of Thunder"; and Ed's favorite, the curmudgeonly rancher Mitch in Sundance Films "The Outfitters".

In the late 70's, he represented the Volunteer State as "The Tennessean" in a nationwide campaign promoting tourism.

Ed was also the host of "American Sports Cavalcade" on The Nashville Network and hosted the seven seasons of "Truckin' USA", also on TNN. He recently began taping the fourth season of "Doc on Point", a series, featuring his English Setter, Doc. It focuses on the training of gun dogs and airs weekly on Outdoor Life Network. He has recorded dozens of national TV and radio commercials including United Airlines, McDonalds, Kawasaki, John Deere, Dodge Trucks and the Armed Services Campaign "It's a Great Place To Start" - to name just a few. Today, as always, Ed loves to sit around with friends and talk sports - most notably, football and hunting, and of course, horses and dogs. There is championship breeding among the herd of 22 Tennessee Walking Horses, and numerous champions and Hall-of-Famers are apparent in the pedigrees of their 5 English Setters. This "royalty" is no more treasured, however, than the always present, variegated pack of tail-wagging strays, orphans and drop-offs greeting visitors to Ed's and Judith's "Home At Last" ranch.

Ed Bruce's career now spans both sides of the Atlantic - he has gained an enormous following in Europe and performs there at least once a year.

The next time you see the movie "Electric Horseman" or hear "Mamma's Don't Let Your Babies Grow Up To Be Cowboys" on the radio, take a good listen. It's a better biographical sketch of Ed Bruce than anything written here.

Sing About Jesus
I ran across this CD while looking for another. I recognize Ed Bruce but I didn't know he had such a powerful voice. There is a true conversion experience echoed in his songs and absolutely beautiful music. I buy extra CD's because everyone who hears his powerful music wants one so I bless them with a new CD. You are truly blessing me and so many others. Thank you Jesus for using Ed Bruce!

Sing About Jesus
Some of Ed Bruce's best work. I heard the song "I Know" on the local radio station and the DJ said it was a very powerful song... He was right and I bought it for my Aunt, who recently lost her husband. I highly recomend this CD.

Vicky

Buy it!!!

Geoffrey C Simons

Sing About Jesus
When Stuart Hine wrote the immortal words "Then sings my soul ..." all those years ago he might have been prophesying the magnificent outpouring of Ed Bruce's soul in this album. Each song is a testimony of this man's faith. Never has he sounded better!

GREAT MATERIAL AND SINGER

Sing About Jesus
This is the MOST awesome CD I have heard in a long time! I still cry every time I hear it - which is almost every day since I received it!! I can not wait to get his other CD "Changed". This is a MUST buy!!

Shirley Nickless

Sing About Jesis
Ed Bruce has always been one of my favorite country artists. When I found that he had connected with Jesus and recorded 2 gospel albums I immediately ordered both. Not only was I not disappointed, but I heard music that touched my soul to the bone. I see from the reviews so many others, as I was, have been particularly touched by the song "I Know". My sister was murdered a year ago, and 2 years ago my daughter-in-law-succumbed to cancer at age 29. But most of all, I heard a heart and experiential connection with Jesus in his music that revealed the depth of his walk with God. Praise God for using this beautiful and unique voice to life Him up! God bless you and Judith abundantly, Ed. Please bring us more.

Michael Kelly

Continues To Bless & Impress
Ed Bruce's Sing About Jesus is a heartfelt and inspiring album. My favorite singer for years, Ed, keeps getting better with each new project. The song, "I Know", touched me in a way that I have not felt in a long time. God has blessed Ed with remarkable talent and God has blessed us with Ed Bruce.

I Sing About Jesus
While driving my 18 wheeler thru Virginia I had the tremendous blessing to hear the song "I Know" which I have ordered, received, and it has been blessing everyone I let listen to it. Thank you for putting me exactly where I needed to be on the particular night. God Bless you, and you certainly have a wonderful talent. Joe
