Best Of 2016: #5

nelonsWe have made it to the best of the best; the top 5 albums and recorded songs of 2016.  After listening/reviewing 42 albums and hearing 464 songs found on those 42 albums; these top the list.

The Nelons defied logic when they decided to release two new albums in the same year, at the same time.  It may have paid off because both albums were among the top ten albums released in 2016.

Ranked 5th among the best albums of the year is Stronger Together.  The song selection was a bit stronger than the album ranked 9th (Family Harmony).

The (5) Best Songs From The Album:  (1) “Family Chain”, (2) “Angels Hover Near You”, (3) “My Father’s House”, (4) “You Can’t Make Old Friends” and (5) “I Think I’ll Read It Again”.

The Hoppers also teamed with songwriter Paula Stefanovich, who gave them their career song “Jerusalem”, to pen the song ranked 5th among the best recorded Southern Gospel songs of the year.

“Jesus, The One” was released months in advance and even became a #1 hit on the Southern Gospel radio singles chart before the album hit retailers.
