Alan Jackson is best known for his traditional brand of mainstream country, but he’s also been successful in gospel music. Now, the singer is set to unveil a second collection of countrified gospel standards, announcing that ‘Precious Memories Volume II’ is set for release later this month.

The album is a follow-up to ‘Precious Memories,’ which was somewhat of a surprise hit in 2006. Originally recorded as a Christmas gift for Jackson’s mother, the singer ultimately decided to release the album commercially at the urging of friends and family who’d heard it. The result was a double-Platinum smash that topped three different Billboard charts — Top Country Albums, Top Christian Albums and Top Christian & Gospel Albums — the week of its release.

In a post to his website, Jackson credited his wife with helping him select the songs for the new project, which include classics like ‘Amazing Grace’ and ‘Love Lifted Me.’

“Denise and I had made a list of 30 to 40 songs to do for that first album,” he says. “We had so many that we didn’t get to, I thought we’d go in and do a few more just the same way — heartfelt and simple.”

‘Precious Memories Volume II’ is slated for release on March 26 via EMI.
