Dottie Rambo was one of the most lauded and influential Gospel songwriters of the 20th century. Her self-penned songs, such as "I Go to the Rock," "We Shall Behold Him" and "The Holy Hills of Heaven Call Me," have become modern-day classics which have been performed by award-winning voices ranging from the late Whitney Houston, Dolly Parton and Sandi Patty to Gospel quartets. These and seven other Dottie Rambo masterpieces are given a pared down, bluegrass feel with acoustic instrumentation and tight-knit harmonies from The Porchlight Trio (Woody Wright, Michael Sykes and David Ponder). Dottie Rambo went home in 2008, but her songs create an indelible legacy that will live for generations.
