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.

    I wasn’t into gospel music until I heard his album. It really is amazing from Sweet Beulah Land to the live acapella in the final track.
