James and Jeff Easter: Like Father, Like Son
Jeff tells us why this album and why now: “I’ve always said my dad is my favorite singer of all and now it is great that I get to honor his voice. He is 81 years old and he is still my inspiration. The things I’ve learned from him growing up still keeps me grounded. I love you, Daddy!”
Sheri Easter wrote the title track in honor of James and Jeff, and co-wrote other songs for the album. “I’m grateful that Jeff had the vision to do this project and for the help that Sheri has been to Jeff,” James shares.
He adds: “One of my favorite scriptures is Romans 8:38-39 where we’re promised that nothing can separate us from the love of God. I am thankful for this promise in my life and in the lives of my children.”
The father/son theme resonated with a couple of Jeff’s friends, who he invited to join him. Jonathan and Jordan Wilburn join on the first single, “Way Up On The Mountain,” and Gerald and Jason Crabb sing the Paul Overstreet/Don Schlitz song “I’ve Got No Rocks to Throw.”
Like Father, Like Son released on November 5 and is available atCrossroads, iTunes, and AmazonMP3.
