  • Description

    The Album

    Homesick for a Country is The Petersens first all-gospel album. The album contains the most requested songs The Petersens have performed in their Branson show over the past two years. These songs have meant so much to our family and it is an honor to see the Lord use them to reach people’s hearts and to be a part of that. The album is dedicated to our sweet grandpa, Jim Yocum, and dear friend, Renee Paxton, who are waiting for us on the far side banks of Jordan.


    The album was produced by John Chapman and engineered by Bill Chapman, both members of the award-winning Chapmans. The album was mastered by Caleb Lindsey from The Lindsey Family. The instrumentation on the project is as follows: Guitar – Matt Petersen, Second Guitar – John Chapman, Mandolin – Jeremy Chapman, Bass – Karen Petersen, Fiddle – Katie Petersen, Banjo – Ellen Petersen, Dobro – Emmett Franz. Vocals on all the tracks are by Katie, Ellen, Matthew, and Julianne Petersen. Vocals are by Katie Petersen, Ellen Petersen, Matt Petersen, and Julianne Petersen. Prodigal Son was recorded live at the Little Opry Theatre.

  1. Kevin

    I bought a copy of this CD at the Branson show on 6/22 and all the Petersens signed it for me after the show. They are just as personable as you would expect them to be! My favorites on the disc are “I Know Who Holds Tomorrow” and “Far Side Banks of Jordan,” but all 10 songs are GREAT!

    I was very blessed that the lord showed this band to me when he did. I was undoubtedly going through the toughest part of my life. God is truly showing himself to his people through this family. The music they play is so pure and is played with true joy, the kind of joy that can only come from God. When listening to their gospel music, all the garbage in this world completely disappears. Thank you for sharing your music with us. I can only imagine what it will be like to sing songs of worship like this in heaven.
