By bringing you the iPod track of the week, my hope is to introduce some great new music that you as the listener may have not thought about before. There are a lot of talented artists recording Southern Gospel music. Amidst the ever-growing landscape of ‘sangers’, it is nice when you get that rare treat of finding a song by a virtually unknown artist and thinking, I need to hear some more of that. Such is the case with this week’s iPod track of the week. This week actually brings a regional artist based in Dobson North Carolina.
The Bledsoes began their recording career in 1992 and actually found minimal chart success. In the span of the last 18 years the group has six recordings including their current album, Onward. Being a resident of North Carolina myself, I have heard the Bledsoes before. Onward is straight ahead Southern Gospel music and this week’s iPod track of the week, “What A Wonderful Change”, is a camp-meeting style song. I will readily admit this is not the only song on the recording that got the repeat treatment during the first listen. This recording has several songs that could easily be featured as the track of the week.
“What A Wonderful Change” is track #8 on the recording. I have provided the first verse and chorus. Enjoy!
