Today, the album of the same name, Come On Home, ranks #15 among the best Southern Gospel albums released in 2012. Produced by Bill Gaither, Come On Home is an easy listening type recording. Reminiscent of what the Bill Gaither Trio would record, this album is dominated by slower, more reflective type songs.
What sets it apart is the power house vocal work put in by all three members of the Nelons. As a result, Come On Home is one of the best Southern Gospel albums released in 2012.
Personal favorites from this recording include: “Come On Home”, “Jesus, I Just Want To Say I’m Sorry”, “Come To The River”, “The Sun’s Coming Up”, “I Choose The Lord” and “Morning Has Broken”.
Everyone in Southern Gospel music is aware of the battle Sheri Easter faced with breast cancer several years ago. Now that she in on the other side of that battle, she recorded a song on the group’s 2012 album, Eyes Wide Open, titled “I Know How It Feels To Survive”.
Penned by Sheri and son Madison Easter, Sheri delivers this song with assurance. The listener can believe every word she is singing. Listen to a clip of #15 among the best recorded songs of 2012; “I Know How It Feels To Survive”.
The countdown continues Monday with #14.
