It's been quite a while since Rigsby has had a release of his own, but this excellent new album has been worth the wait. Over the years Rigsby has been a key part of such important bands as J.D. Crowe's New South, Lonesome River Band, Rock County, Longview, Vern Gosdin and the Bluegrass Cardinals. Here on this nicely produced 14-song album of Bluegrass gospel songs he uses a variety of settings, from one unaccompanied solo to full band treatments. The material that Rigsby has chosen comes from a variety of sources and includes some quite intriguing songs like Tom T. Hall's THEN Y'AINT, Paul Craft's CHARGED WITH BEING CHRISTIAN and Skip Ewing's THE GOSPEL ACCORDING TO LUKE. Other songwriters represented are Larry Cordle, Alan Johnston, Joe Isaacs, and Gillian Welch. Along with the contemporary material Rigsby mixes in several traditional pieces like his solo version of THE LORD WILL PROVIDE and the fine full group a cappella treatment of HE DONE WHAT HE SAID. The record also includes some of the last studio work of the late Gerald Evans on fiddle. ONE PRAYER AWAY, LEANING ON THE SON, MARY MAGDALENE, etc.
