The mixed trio that lands at #16 among the best album releases of the year is 11th Hour. This trio is new to many listeners as Steppin’ Out is only the group’s second album. The group’s style is reminiscent of the Hinsons, mixed with a little Crabb Family and add just a dash of the Martins.
11th Hour gained exposure with their hit radio song from 2011, “Adam’s Fall”. Anchored by lead vocalist and songwriter Amber Eppinette, the group’s future looks bright.
Personal favorites from this recording include: “He’s See What We Don’t”, “Bloodline”, “Tomb To The Table”, “Steppin’ Out” and “It’s A Wonderful Life”.
The mixed trio that has the #16 recorded song of 2012 is the Nelons. A group name that has been around for over thirty years but the Nelons of today have seen a resurgence in their career over the last several years.
That resurgence is a direct result of their last several album releases. The title track of their 2012 album, “Come On Home” is the song that finds a home as the #16 recorded song of the year.
Penned by the dynamic songwriting duo of Bill and Gloria Gaither, the strength of “Come On Home” is the vocal performance turned in by Amber Thompson. Amber is one of the best female vocalists singing Southern Gospel music right now. Listen to a clip of the #16 song of 2012; “Come On Home”.
Tomorrow brings #15.
