NASHVILLE, Tenn. (August 2, 2023) — Dove Award-winning singer/songwriter Lynda Randle announces a new Gospel EP, By The Riverside, set for release on September 22 via Gaither Music Group. One of the most beloved talents on the Gaither Homecoming Video Series and stages (her arrangement of “God On The Mountain” is the most popular video on the Gaither Music TV YouTube channel, with over 74 million views), Randle takes the listener to church with this encouraging, six-song collection of timeless Gospel favorites.

With her soulful, rich vocals shining brightly on these arrangements, Randle offers joyful renditions of “Down by the Riverside,” “Put Your Hand in the Hand” and more, inviting others to sing along and lean into the One who meets us By The Riverside of grace.
Randle says, “This EP is a reminder to let God’s peace cover and keep us each and every day and to completely lean on His strong and everlasting arms to get us through the hard times because He is the only true source of real peace and joy. No matter what happens in our lives and/or the world in which we live, God is still God! As long as we keep our hands in His ALMIGHTY hand, we’re gonna be okay. And someday, when our struggles and trials are over, we will lay our burdens down by the riverside of life, never to be troubled by them anymore; and all of our seeking and longing for Jesus will be over because we will finally be HOME with Him for all eternity.”
Songs from By The Riverside will be featured on Gaither Radio on Pandora, Gaither Radio on Amazon, Gaither Radio on Spotify, Apple Music’s Front Porch Fellowship as well as on the Gaither Music TV YouTube channel. The EP is distributed by Capitol Christian Music Group and Universal Music.
