Paul OverstreetSowin’ Love – Paul Overstreet is a highly successful country music songwriter, penning 27 Top 10 hits including two #1 songs.  From what I can tell, most do not fall into the crossover category with one major exception, the Randy Travis hit “Forever and Ever, Amen”.  This is his second album, from 1989, and it is a gentle and highly enjoyable album that is loaded with fine songwriting.
