Platinum recording artist Crystal Gayle shared the excitement of her latest musical venture with a gathering of family and friends at BMI Nashville. In My Arms, a collection of 17 original songs written and produced by Steve Ivey and Denny Jiosa, is Gayle's first recording for children. The project from Panda Music was recorded in Nashville and is distributed through Madacy Kids!. A portion of the album sale proceeds will be donated to DreamMakers, Inc., an organization dedicated to granting the wishes of children with life-threatening illnesses and providing scholarships to teens who have survived childhood illnesses.
