Producer: Ben Isaacs
Record Label: Gaither Music Group

[yasr_overall_rating size=”medium”]

Jimmy Fortune, best known as the tenor singer for the legendary Statler Brothers Quartet for over 20 years, has released a new solo project simply titled Sings the Classics. Fortune has selected some of the most well known and favorite classic-country songs, and with producer Ben Isaacs at the helm, this project is sure to be a hit among country music fans.

Featuring the beautiful “Unchained Melody,” Fortune truly shines on this cut.  Other highlights include “Take Me Home, Country Roads,” “Wake Up Little Susie,” and “If.”

A couple of special moments on the project that truly stand out is Jimmy’s performance of the classic and sacred “Bridge Over Troubled Waters.” Again, Fortune’s voice is passionate and has such a clarity about it here.  The closing song, “Yesterday” is also another highlight and is a great way to end such a great project of hits and classics.

Country music fans will truly love this project as will fans of more traditional music. Grab a copy! You’ll be glad you did!
