Sunday Morning with Nat Stuckey & Connie Smith is the second and final collaboration album between American country music artists, Nat Stuckey and Connie Smith. The album was released in January 1970 by RCA Records and was produced by Bob Ferguson and Felton Jarvis. The album was a collection of Gospel songs.

Background and release[edit]

Sunday Morning consisted of eleven tracks of Gospel material all performed as duets between Stuckey and Smith. The album includes cover versions of Johnny Cash's "Daddy Sang Bass," as well as "If God Is Dead (Then Who's This Living in My Soul)." It was recorded at the RCA Studios in Nashville Tennessee in late 1969, four months before its official release the following year. It was released on a 12-inch LP album, with songs on each side of the record.[1] Unlike their previous album together, Sunday Morning did not chart the Top Country Albums chart, but its only single, "If God is Dead (Then Who's This Living in My Soul)" reached a peak position of #59 on the Billboard Magazine Hot Country Songs chart in 1970.

The album was re-released on a compact disc and retitled, God Will. The album can also be obtained on CD as part of the Bear Family Records box set "Connie Smith: Just for What I Am" (2012).
