The much anticipated collection from this iconic voiced, multi award winner sees the elite of American Country Music's songwriting and instrumental talent gathering to lend serious weight to their original and Kathy's, self-penned tunes. Pat Alger who wrote five Number Ones for Garth Brooks, including "Unanswered Prayers and The Thunder Rolls" joins Grammy winners and nominees Wood Newton and Jan Buckingham and a host of others to hoist this as an ALBUM OF THE YEAR candidate in many insiders’ opinion.

The album is also the first release on the International Songwriters Guild's own ISG RECORDS: ISG/Venus label.
