Best Of 2015 – #13

Canton Junction #13Some consider the #13 unlucky.  It is not unlucky for the two quartets who find a home in the annual countdown for best album and recorded song.

Canton Junction burst on the scene several years ago with a 20 song debut album that solidified the kind of sound/style they wanted to present to Southern Gospel audiences.  That progressive quartet sound continued with the group’s 2015 release, Every Hallelujah.

With Casey Rivers (lead) and Ryan Seaton (baritone) now joining Matthew Hagee (tenor) and Tim Duncan (bass), the group is competing with the best quartets in Southern Gospel music. Canton Junction even added a small six city tour in the fall of 2015 to showcase Every Hallelujah.

Personal favorites from this recording include:  “Tumbling Down”, “I Am”, “Every Hallelujah”, “God’s Got A Better Plan”, “Weep No More”, “I Need A Little More Jesus”, “When He Was On The Cross” and “It Wasn’t Raining”.

KH #13The Kingdom Heirs are back at the top of their game recording traditional Southern Gospel quartet music.  With the addition of Brian Alvey on baritone, the group’s sound has only gotten stronger.

Speaking of Alvey, he happens to be featured on the song ranked 13th among the best recorded songs of 2015.  Lee Black, Sue S Smith and Kenna Turner West came together to pen “Never Made A Promise”.

The assurance of knowing God never made a promise that he doesn’t keep is one we all need when we have those moments of doubt.
