Blue Skies (1996)

Blue Skies is the tenth studio album by Christian singer - songwriter Bryan Duncan, released on December 11, 1996 by Myrrh/Word Records. The album is produced by Dan Posthuma.

Duncan returns with a proper follow-up album to his 1994 album Slow Revival after releasing a Spanish-language album (Unidos en Él), a Christmas album (Christmas is Jesus) and a collection of hymns and inspirational songs (My Utmost for His Highest: Quiet Prayers). Blue Skies recaptures the sounds of Motown, Memphis and Philly soul on upbeat songs like the title track, "One Touch Away" and "Joy Is A Singable Thing." The track "After This Day Is Gone" gave Duncan his last number one song on the Christian AC chart.

The album debuted and peaked at number 19 on the Billboard Top Christian Albums chart.
