“Lord, You’ve Been Good to Me”

Tim Woodson and the Heirs of Harmony pay homage to a pioneering gospel quartet-styled group with the current single, “Lord, “You’ve Been Good to Me.” The number was popularized over 50 years ago by the legendary Five Blind Boys of Mississippi.
Sticking to the adage, “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it,” Woodson pounds this toe-tapper with the same vocal intensity as Henry Johnson, who is heard on the Blind Boys’ version as this Heirs’ remake begins.
Based in Grand Rapids, Michigan, Woodson and the Heirs have been spreading the good news since 1992.
