Best Of 2014 – #6

Masters VoiceHappy Christmas Monday!  The kids are counting down the days (3).  I am using this Christmas Monday to continue the annual countdown of the best Southern Gospel albums and recorded songs.

One of the biggest surprises of 2014 is the album ranked 6th among the best of 2014; Master’s Voice, Rescued From Religion.  In the review of this album, I mentioned how I loved the title of this recording.  ‘Religion’ has muddied true Christianity for way too long, but I digress (tis the season of cheer!).

Master’s Voice proved with this recording that Southern Gospel listeners need to start paying attention because they are more than just a regional artist from Oklahoma.  Ricky Capps, Justin Morphis and Joey Johnson should be extremely proud of what they gave Southern Gospel listeners, an album that ranks 6th among all the albums released this year.

Personal favorites from this recording include:  “The Saving Kind”; “Holy All Over Again”; “Ship Was Made To Sail”; “He Loved Me Anyway”; “It’s Still Through The Blood”; “Safe In The Grip Of His Grace”; “Nothing Greater Than Grace” and “Ordinary Sunday”.

BFAWhat can be said of Brian Free and Assurance that hasn’t already been mentioned.  They have had another great year in 2014, with a large part of that success due to the song ranked 6th among the best recorded songs in Southern Gospel music this year.

“Say Amen” garnered three wins for the group at the 1st annual Southern Gospel Views from the Back Row honors, including best recorded song, best concept video and best songwriting collab.  Jason Cox, Michael Farren and Kenna West may have penned one of the biggest songwriting collaborations of the last decade in Gospel music.

Here is a YouTube clip (published by BFAVideoBlog) of the award-winning concept video of “Say Amen”.  Enjoy!

  1. Wow! Master’s Voice is good! One thing they’ve done right is make sure their music is on iTunes. Yes, I’m sure people have saw comments from me before harping on the need to make music available digitally, but here I am harping on it again. I don’t have the time to go to the music store to find every album or song I hear about. I’m not going to a groups Website and ordering something in the mail. I’m not going to sign up for a service to download music from a groups website, but I can’t tell you how many times a song mentioned on a blog like this caught my attention and I bought it within minutes of hearing it.

    Good job by Master’s Voice of making their music easy to sample and purchase!
