Best Of 2015 – #2

Crabb #2We are one day away from crowning the best Southern Gospel album and recorded song of 2015.  But, first lets see who claims the runner-up spots.

There is no doubt, Jason Crabb is the biggest crossover artist in Christian music.  His music has crossed stylistic barriers to appeal to a huge base of listeners.  All this, while still appealing to the Southern Gospel crowd who enjoyed the music of the Crabb Family.

In 2015, Jason released what I consider to be his best solo album to date; Whatever The Road.  There really is something for everyone to enjoy.  You get Crabb’s country-style that fit with his Crabb Family days, along with some pop flavors that appeal to a broader listener base.  All of this while still not going too far for the album to be marketed to Southern Gospel listeners.

Personal favorites from this recording include:  “If I Shout”, “Chance For A Miracle”, “Home”, “He Won’t Leave You There”, “Never Gonna Let Me Go”, “This Life For You” and “He Knows What He’s Doing”.

Easters #2 (300x300)There were truly two songs that defined 2015 in Southern Gospel music.  The first is the song ranked #2 among the best recorded/released this year.

Sheri Easter got together with Don Poythress and Kenna Turner West to pen the most personal song of the year; “Jesus Loves You”.  Everyone listening to this song can relate to its message and the reminder that no matter what we face in life, Jesus’ love for us is steadfast and never fails.

This song was close to claiming to top spot for best recorded song of 2015, but there was one that edged it out; find out tomorrow.
