We’ll close out this week’s look at the best of 2011 with the album and song that sits at #12. It is hard to argue that the Booth Brothers are the biggest Southern Gospel artist of the last five years. Their popularity continues to garner them awards upon awards. As long as the Booth Brothers keep backing that up with quality music, their reign at the top is far from over.
In 2011, the group released Let It Be Known. An improvement in the over orchestrated, hard to listen to in one sitting Declaration album of 2010; Let It Be Known brought back a simpler sound that brought the Booth Brothers to prominence. This album should keep producing hit singles well into 2012.
Personal favorite songs from this recording include: ”The Master’s Table”, “Masterpiece Of Mercy”, “Since Jesus Came”, “Let It Be Known”, “What About Now” and “When You Bow At Jesus’ Feet”.
The Dunaways are one of four artists to land two songs in the top 20 among the best recorded songs of 2011. Coming in at #12 is “Didn’t I Walk On The Water”. Penned by Linda Gibson-Johnson, Tammy and Kanah Dunaway take the lead on this song.
The majority of songs found on the group’s 2011 album It’s A God Thing convey the message of finding God right when we need him. In times of hopelessness, sickness, family issues and financial troubles; the Dunaways released music that speak to the listener right where they are living. Listen to Kanah sing the second verse and chorus to “Didn’t I Walk On The Water”.
Monday will bring us half way through the best of 2011 with #11.
