Turn Back to God, America
The Master’s Men’s have a new project available, the first in nearly 3 years. The project was initially started in 2015 with a 2016 or early 2017 release estimate. Then came personnel changes, numerous health issues and a hurricane named Harvey.
All that is now behind us and the new project titled ”Turn Back to God, America”, after the song with the same name, is now available, with a new T-shirt that carries the same name and theme.
The song was originally written and composed some 30 years ago by Kent Houp, baritone, and Keith Morgan, lead, when they sang together with the Countrymen Gospel Quartet. Kent was reading in 2 Chronicles when he came to chapter 7 and verse 14, which says:
“If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”
Kent began thinking about the issues our country faced back then, and the words began to flow, with the majority of the song being written in about 30 minutes. After working for several days looking for a melody line and chord structure, he took the song to Keith, who in short order had the entire composition done.
The song was pertinent when it was written, and how much more appropriate the words are in the word in which we live today, when we think the only hope for our country is to get on our knees and turn back to God.
As with most of our CDs, you will find a mixture of old, new and in this case original work that we hope you will enjoy. The CD is not online with CD Baby at this time, so catch up with The Master’s Men at one of our concerts in the near future.
Until then, make a joyful noise unto the Lord!
