As promised, this week begins another new feature titled the definitive Southern Gospel collection. I will attempt to rank the best Southern Gospel albums released by year. The first edition of the definitive Southern Gospel collection will rank the best albums released in the year 2000.
I want this feature to also allow readers to offer input on their thoughts on the best albums released in a specific year. With the retirement of the Cathedrals in 1999, the year 2000 was the first year the Southern Gospel listening audience didn’t get new music from the group.
No need to fret because there were a slew of career defining albums released in the year 2000 for many Southern Gospel artists. Here is what I consider to be Southern Gospel’s 20 best albums released in the year 2000.
- Power – Hoppers (SpringHill)
