Spartanburg, SC – (February 18, 2021) – Christian songwriter and musician, Joy Holden, has announced the release of the preview video for her deluxe album, “Broken to Beautiful.”
This video not only tells the story of the birthing of the album, but also Joy’s musical journey to this point. Broken to Beautiful was produced by Les Butler, a 42-year music veteran and artist in his own right, and he gives great insight into the making of the project and working with Joy and other top musicians and writers.
Sharing about the process of producing such a great project, he said “the supporting cast on this record – Grammy and Dove winning songwriters, musicians, engineers, and background singers – all just amazing! Joy knocked it out of the park! Well done.”
Much of the work on Broken to Beautiful was completed at Nashville’s legendary Hilltop Studios. Credited with producing hundreds of number one hit records in country, gospel, southern gospel and bluegrass music, they have been responsible for top recordings from the Happy Goodmans, the Hinson’s and many others.
Joy said “Working with Les, was an honor and a privilege, truly a blessing from God. When he was referred to me it was an instant connection! We found common ground immediately with the right songs, styles and arrangements. I am proud of every single song on this project. The message is simple and designed to lift people up and give them hope.”
More than a year in the making, the project was delayed by Covid-19 and other serious illnesses, but that just makes it more timely. The message in every song is relevant, real and authentic. It was worth the wait, and we know you will enjoy Broken to Beautiful.
