Available For Pre-Order April 26

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Country Music Hall of Fame and Gospel Music Hall of Fame member Jimmy Fortune is proud to announce his new album God & Country available across all music platforms on May 24. God & Country, released via Gaither Music Group, reflects and celebrates the beauty of America, the courage of those who have made it free and the hymns that have warmed the hearts of its citizens for centuries. The recording will also be available in Cracker Barrel Old Country Store® locations. Fans can pre-order God & Country on April 26 and receive the first instant grat track “God Bless America/America the Beautiful (Medley).”

God & Country says it all because our country needs God and some positive input. I think when people listen to this project they will feel what this country was built on, and it will give them a sense of pride and hope for the future. God bless America!” exclaimed Jimmy Fortune.

Fortune, a 21-year member of The Statler Brothers, lends his unmistakable tenor voice to the stirring renditions of national classics and congregational favorites that create an expression of gratitude for our faith and freedoms. God & Country was produced by Ben Isaacs of the multi-award winning family group The Isaacs. The tracks were recorded, mixed and engineered at Ben’s Den by Isaacs and Mark Capps and mastered at Georgetown Masters by Andrew Mendelson.

God & Country will be advertised as part of a special television offer on DISH TV, DirecTV, RFD-TV, Gaither Television Network, TBN, FamilyNet, CTN, GMC, GMTN, Guardian, Liberty, TCT and TLN. It will air in Canada on Vision TV, CTS, The Miracle Channel and Hope TV.

“The name ‘Jimmy Fortune’ has become synonymous with the sounds of country music, songs about faith and the fabric of America. This recording combines those things and showcases Jimmy’s signature tenor voice that has made him instantly recognizable for decades. God & Country shines a bright light on the heart of this legendary singer, songwriter and musician,” expressed Paul Sizelove, president of Gaither Music Group.

God & Country includes a new-rendition of The Statler Brothers’ Top 10 hit “More Than a Name on a Wall.” During his tenure with The Statler Brothers, Fortune co-wrote the hit as well as the group’s chart-topping hits “Elizabeth,” “My Only Love” and “Too Much On My Heart.” Inspired by the story of a Gold Star mother challenging a teacher who panned the military, Fortune also co-wrote the fifth track on the album, “Meet Me at Arlington,” with award-winning songwriter Dave Clark. The Statler Brothers were inducted into the Gospel Music Association Hall of Fame in 2007 and Country Music Hall of Fame in 2008, while Fortune was also inducted as a solo artist to the Virginia Musical Hall of Fame last year.

Gaither Music Group released Fortune’s critically-acclaimed compilation album Jimmy Fortune Sings the Classics in 2017. The label also released Fortune’s CD and DVD project Hits & Hymns which debuted at No. 10 on the Billboard Country Albums chart, No. 1 on the Southern Gospel chart and No. 6 on the Billboard Contemporary Christian chart. Fortune has sold over 100,000 CD and DVD units with Gaither Music Group.

      Sydni Perry played on Hits and Hymns and Ryan Joseph played on God and Country.

      • Katherine Lybrand says:

        Love listening to Ryan Joseph. Glad to hear him on God & Country. His fiddle playing sounds like a smile.

  2. Kim Baow says:

    Do you have plans of ever coming to Utah or Arizona? I’m a huge fan!! Jimmy, I have a little 10 year old special needs son with Noonons syndrome. He is totally deaf, but he loves your God and Country DVD. He will spend hours watching you! Thank you for bringing peace and joy to a precious little soul. If you ever come this way, I would love to bring g him to see you!

    • Nina Fortune says:

      We get a lot of requests to get back out there. We love Arizona and Utah. Hopefully the booking agency will find a venue.

    As always – it was such a pleasure to hear Jimmy’s nice voice. We were at the Walker Center tonight. He and his band are very talented, and I am so glad that you share your voice for all of us to hear.

    Hi Nina and Jimmy,

    We were so glad to be at the concert tonight at Dominion Valley Park – the concert was AWESOME – We like Jimmy’s voice so much – the whole group is great – I have such a good feeling after hearing you sing, Jimmy. You truly are so talented. Thank you for touring and sharing your voice in songs.

    I hope you two enjoy using the little zippered candy pouches I made for you. I have made many of them – think they are cute.

    Take care and thanks again for performing tonight. We will see you on October 17 at the Walker Center – bought our tickets a couple days ago.

    Love and best wishes – Alicia Williams

    We were at the Montana Music Ranch last week for the Concert and it was wonderful. Jimmy sang the song I love you more and I instantly wondered if it could help all these people with suicidal thoughts. Have you ever thought about hooking up with one of the national groups to see if it could help? It is such a wonderful song and it might be just the catalyst to turn someone around.
    God bless.

    Looking forward to Friday night in Scottsburg, IN

    Will you be coming to Fort Smith, Arkansas in the near future?

    • Nina Fortune says:

      We don’t have anything close right now. I think the closest will be in Branson in September.

  11. Virginia Pagan says:

    You are my most favorite singer & have been since Statler days. I love the mature look on the cover of GOD & Country. I pray that God will bless you and your family always. And, please keep singing those wonderful songs to me on You Tube. Hits & Hymns is my favorite.

  12. Lynda Jayroe says:

    Love your singing. Would like for you to look up Jeremy and Rachel Chupp and listen to their song (It could have been Me). They can really sing. They go to Churches all around and sing. They are great!!

  13. deborahbaggett89 says:

    Excited to get this new album, still hoping for a concert within driving distance in Alabama. We enjoyed the one in 2015 so much.

    I’m ordering as soon as available ❤️
