My Savior consists of covers of some of Underwood’s favorite traditional gospel hymns in a unique pastiche of musical styles from classic country to folk, bluegrass, and gospel.  The album will be available on vinyl April 30.  My Savior is co-produced and arranged by Underwood and GRAMMY Award winner David Garcia, with whom she co-produced her  2018 album Cry Pretty, her seventh album to be certified Platinum or Multi-Platinum by the RIAA. Garcia is a multi-platinum selling, four-time GRAMMY Award-winning record producer and songwriter.
