Sometimes I Cry
2011 Songwriter of the Year, Gerald Crabb, presents a brand-new project featuring 11 songs from his pen, including 2011 Song of the Year, "Sometimes I Cry."
The project includes contributions from Marty Raybon, Weston Hinson, Terry Franklin, the Easter Brothers and Jimmy & Jennifer Layne. Produced by Gerald himself, with assistance from Russell Jr. and Jared Easter of the legendary Easter Brothers, Sometimes I Cry features 10 songs that communicate the blessings and struggles of everyday life, drawing the listener in with its country feel, and speaking to the sinner and saint alike.
Best known as the writer of the Crabb Family's biggest hits, such as "Through The Fire," "The Reason That I'm Standing," and "Please Forgive Me," Gerald Crabb has penned over 350 songs, 22 of which have reached #1 on the charts. Most recently, Gerald was named 2011 Songwriter of the Year at the 42nd Annual GMA Dove Awards, in addition to winning 2011 Song of the Year for "Sometimes I Cry," recorded by his son, Jason Crabb.
"When I first heard the CD, I immediately thought of Johnny Cash and Billy Joe Shaver," comments Ed Leonard, President of Daywind Records. "Gerald captured the gritty, real feel that so many artists are missing these days. He sings from his soul instead of his diaphragm. The lyrics and melodies take you into the life of a sinner, saved by grace, and trying to live his life for Jesus. The listener feels pain, regret, melancholy, happiness and triumph throughout the entire record."
The first single from the project, "Prince of Peace," was released to Southern Gospel radio last month.
