Justin Trevino has become of one the brightest traditional Country Music artists in the last decade. He has gained a very large following throughout the Southwest while touring other countries including Sweden and Australia.
"Before You Say Amen" is the first Country Gospel album from Trevino. It is a project that he had wanted to do for a very long time.
"I have always loved Country Gospel music," Trevino said from his Texas home. "I wanted to record a Country Gospel album, but my former record label didn't want to have have anything to do with it. After signing with Heart of Texas Records, I asked Tracy Pitcox about doing one featuring the same type of music that I am known for. This is that project. It may be the very best album that I have ever produced."
Trevino found a couple of new gospel songs that immediately caught his attention. "Before You Say Amen, the title track, was written by Ron Williams (Leona Williams's son) and Mark Mash. It is a great testimate to prayer in today's modern age. Trevino also recorded another new song that is destined to become a classic in "Heart That Will Never Break Again."
"I wanted to include some of the great standards and highlight the fiddle and steel guitar on those songs like
"The Old Rugged Cross" "Life's Railway To Heaven" "How Great Thou Art" and "Where We Will Never Grow Old."
Trevino even "shuffled" the great classic "Where The Roses Never Fade."
Mona McCall joins Trevino on the Dottie Rambo song "Remind Me Dear Lord." Trevino heard McCall perform the song at a live show in Brady, Texas, and decided that the song and the singer should be featured on his gospel project.
Trevino had put together another stellar group of Texas musicians to back "Before You Say Amen" including Bobby Flores on fiddle, Jake Hooker on Upright Bass, Dicky Overbey on steel guitar, Ron Huckabee on piano, Jim Lossberg on piano, Justin Trevino on Rhythm Guitar and Bobby Flores on Lead Guitar.
Harmony Vocals are provided by Heart of Texas Recording Artist Amber Digby, Guyanne McCall (Darrell & Mona's daughter) and Trevino.
"Heart of Texas Records is so pleased with Justin's latest album," Heart of Texas Records President Tracy Pitcox said. "I believe it is simply one of the finest Country Gospel albums ever recorded. I think Justin's fans will agree."
