December 20 — MY GOSPEL, Paul Cauthen (2016)

img_1542Continuing my review of year-end lists, today I discovered Paul Cauthen, an East Texas baritone, raised in the Church of Christ. After a stint leading Sons of Fathers, Cauthen released his first solo record. Channeling parts John Fullbright, Waylon Jennings and Elvis’s gospel work, this number rises straight up through your boots, to the rafters of the wood-frame church. Amen.
