This set combines two of Diamond Rio's recent albums, 2007's Christmas holiday release The Star Still Shines and 2009's gospel-infused religious and faith-based outing The Reason, in a single package. Although neither of these albums fell into the group's familiar secular country-pop style, both feature the fine vocals and musicianship that have always served this subtly innovative country band well, and the two releases fit comfortably together like this.
