Stella Parton adds: “Having a song like Mountain Miracles that lyrically captures my love for God, my family and my Appalachian roots is really a musical miracle in and of itself. To have available the technology to capture all that I hear in my head while singing and then hear that same quality in playback is a must-have for any artist. Focusrite has done that with the Liquid Channel - I hear all the highs, the subtle variances in my voice while keeping it honest, pure and seemingly transparent. I will never record again without Focusrite!”

Additional quotes from BMI:

"This is absolutely the BEST sounding record I've ever heard from Stella Parton. Mountain Miracles is a great BMI song and Stella's vocals are sparkling! This recording could very well be headed for an upcoming Grammy nomination."

Harry Warner, BMI Executive Vice President Writer/Artist Relations

"I just love the song and the message it delivers. Stella Parton's voice shines brilliantly above the symphonic sounds of Appalachia. A great marriage of production, sound and artist - what a wonderful BMI Song and wonderful sounding record!

Patsy Bradley, BMI Senior Director, Publisher Administration
