Special Guests

  • Wynonna Judd — International Recording Artist
    On her 7th studio album, Sing: Chapter 1, Wynonna celebrates 25 years in the business by giving us a glimpse of her extraordinary influences and the songs that inspired her. Her first studio album in six years, Sing pays homage to 11 country, rock, blues and soul-baring standards originated by legendary artists that have formed the unique soundtrack to her own life. “All my musical chapters are here, every genre. These are the songs that have moved me ever since I was a little girl. These are the songs I have turned to for comfort and insight at every point of my life.” This incredibly diverse CD includes the swinging Big Band tilt of “That’s How Rhythm Was Born,” first recorded by The Boswell Sisters, one of the earliest songs Wynonna remembers singing with her mother; “'Til I Get It Right,” the Tammy Wynette heartbreaker; “Ain’t No Sunshine,” the Bill Withers classic;” I’m A Woman,” popularized by Maria Muldaur - and Merle Haggard’s 1980s country lament, “Are The Good Times Really Over For Good.” The album also contains spirited rockers, such as “I Hear You Knocking” and the Stevie Ray Vaughan corker, “The House Is Rockin’”.

    This week on the Counsel Of Many: a woman is terrified that she’s losing her faith and she needs some advice.

    "I think I'm losing my faith and I'm not sure what to do! Just to give you a little background, I was raised a Christian and went through the typical Christian life cycle - Sunday school, commitment in the early teen years, party time rebellion in the later teens, and re-commitment just after that. I went to a whole range of churches and for along time called myself a "Pentabrethabapticostal". I've always believed in God, even when it wasn't convenient and I’ve even gotten to the point of trying to deny Him. God has always been my constant though, my hope, and I've always felt that "it's gonna be okay in the end because there's a loving God who cares about me". But lately, anytime I hear the phrases, "God spoke to me" or "God is teaching me" or "God will show you", something deep down inside me says "yah, right". It's involuntary! I'm feeling more and more that life is just life! God isn’t blessing people and He's not punishing them. He may have created all this but he's not involved. Everyone seems to think they know God but I'm not sure what to trust. The Bible... well I have my doubts about that as well. My inner voice? Can youdifferentiate God voice from your own desires - REALLY? So maybe he just stays out of all of it. There's a core belief in me that is failing and I'm terrified to lose it. I love my faith because without it I guess there's nothing..."
