“When an artist decides to record a song that is already a classic, it is usually because they love that song so much that they just cannot get it out of their head. This must have been the mindset of Kelly Lang when she went into the studio to record “Midnight Train To Georgia.” She did not try to outdo the original. Instead, Kelly dug deep and found something within her own soul that embraced the same emotion that she heard in the very first Gladys Knight recording. Kelly did not only glean from this classic, she reimagined her own deep emotion. Kelly’s voice is convincing and crystal clear!” – Duane Allen, Oak Ridge Boys
“Kelly Lang has always been a class act with a warm, lovely voice and a keen gift as a songwriter. Here she refreshes one of pop music’s timeless gems, putting her own stamp on “Midnight Train to Georgia” and bringing its magic to a new audience.” – Deborah Evans Price
“Kelly is so full of soul, you can really feel her heart’s passion for this song. She doesn’t just sing it, it’s a vocal event. I have long awaited her next collection of these songs and was so excited for this.” – Joe Don Baker, Classic Country Saturday Night
“Kelly Lang’s version of ‘Midnight Train to Georgia’ will take you back to when music touched our soul and will make you sway back and forth. A true classic done with love and passion.” – Judy Shields, The Hollywood Times
