In this episode of the Author Talks with Shaun Tabatt Podcast I remove my author interview hat for a bit to bring you another Christian music-focused episode. Earlier this summer I had the pleasure of sitting down with Cheri Keaggy to talk about her album titled So I Can Tell.
About the Album:
In So I Can Tell, Dove award winning recording artist Cheri Keaggy draws on the encouragement of Scripture and her utter reliance on the comforting power of God to create an honest, engaging recording that is reflective of her emergence from a difficult season in life.
Penned following the end of her nearly 23-year marriage to her high school sweetheart, So I Can Tell is a testimony of God’s goodness in the midst of pain and suffering. Like a modern day psalmist, Keaggy’s lyrics express grief, loneliness, and God’s comfort.
“Out of the trials of the last few years, I feel like God has given me some gold,” Keaggy says of the new songs. “Now it’s time for me to pour it out.”
The combination of rich, acoustic sounds with Cheri Keaggy’s signature plaintive vocals and searingly honest lyrics results in a project that confronts life’s realities, even when filled with despair, and offers listeners the way to navigate through the challenges to a place of hope through Christ. Through an accessible folk-pop presentation, the album leaves listeners with a renewed sense that God is with us, no matter what.
About the Artist:
Cheri Keaggy began her career as a worship leader at a small church in Southern California before recording her debut album on Sparrow Records, Child of the Father, in 1994. Honored with a Dove Award nomination for New Artist of the Year, Cheri has gone on to record seven additional albums, resulting in nine No. 1 songs, three Dove Award nominations and a Dove Award win. After more than two decades in music, her ministry has expanded to include speaking engagements as well.
Here are some of the places to connect with Cheri on the web:
