In The Garden cover

In the Garden returns Betty Johnson to her roots, to the memory of the days when she was the soprano in the Johnson Family Singers.  With her brothers, mother and father, Betty was part of “America’s Favorite Singing Family.”  With journeyman skills, the Johnsons defined sacred music for many from the 1930s to the 1950s.  Their exuberant approach to hymns and gospel songs infected listeners – and there were many listeners.  The group could be heard over the CBS radio network in the 1940s, and they enjoyed outlets with America’s two largest recording companies: Columbia and RCA-Victor.

This collection culls the best of Betty’s own sacred recordings from the late 1950s and early 1960s as well as updated versions of well-loved hymns such as “Amazing Grace” and “Precious Memories” which feature Betty’s talented daughters Lydia and Elisabeth.

If Betty Johnson’s pop recordings are the perfect Saturday night sounds, In the Garden is the complement for Sunday morning.
