Yodelin in Heaven
'Yodelin in Heaven' "Yodelin' in Heaven" is a compilation CD with songs from Beth's 4 other CD's, along with 2 new original songs. The goal of this project was to have an entire CD with positive songs offering hope, comfort, spiritual insight and reassurance that life & love never really end. Beth's husband, Laird Palmer, also reads scriptures before and after the title cut. An absolute 'must have' for all friends & fans of Beth Williams music!! 'In This Old House' Co-Produced by Texas Music Legend and Award Winning Producer LLoyd Maines, In This Old House was voted one of Austin's Top 10 Albums of 2001 and received a tremendous amount of critical acclaim and radio airplay. Of this CD, Bill Conner of KNBT in San Marcos, TX says 'Beth's songs are not written as much as crafted, her soaring vocals add just the right amount of electricity to each track. When you hear her psychedelic yodel-chants on Track 5, you'll laugh out loud, and you'll be hooked for good.' In This Old House will give listeners a true picture of Beth's incomparable musical craftsmanship, as well as her remarkable capacity as a lyricist. But the album will prove to be far more revealing than simply the work of an expert technician. One has only to listen to the words, as they soar through the beauty of the Lloyd Maines production, to understand that Beth brings her heart, her soul, and the depths of her personal experiences for all to hear. 'Steady Conversation with the Lord' This album has 8 of the most loved hymns and gospel favorites, along with 2 of Beth's own gospel compositions. The least 'arranged' of her CDs with only Beth on acoustic guitar/ lead vocals and harmonies and Rick McRae on lead guitar, a number of listeners have declared this to be their favorite recording of hers. Many have said they feel it takes them back to a simpler, more innocent time...a time of love for each other, God & country. 'One Empty Chair' Beth's second all original CD charted in Gavin & European charts, solidifying Beth's place in the Texas music scene. Having been taking her music ministry, 'Keeping Time with Beth' to nursing homes & hospitals for 8 years at that time, the majority of the songs from One Empty Chair were written out of her experiences in these facilities. 'First Class' Although living in Texas, Beth's musical journey led her to recording in Nashville in 1987, where she was embraced with her debut, First Class, produced by Ed Penney. 'Man at the Back Door,' 'Wrong Train,' and 'These Eyes' all charted in Billboard right in the middle of Steve Warner and Roseanne Cash. With producer Ed Penney, and musicians such as Sonny Garrish, Greg Galbraith, Pig Robbins, & Johnny Gimble, Beth's recording led to her being named one of the Top 10 'Best New Female Vocalists of the Year' by the ACADEMY OF COUNTRY MUSIC, 'Best Female Performer' by INDEPENDENT NEWS, and 'Best Independent Female Vocalist' by CASHBOX Magazine.
