I trust everyone had a wonderful Christmas holiday in time spent with family and friends. Before we begin the new year, we have to close out the old. Today, we take a look at the album and recorded song ranked 4th among the best of 2016 in Southern Gospel music.
The Down East Boys have always seemed to carry the moniker of most underrated. No matter how great the quartet music they release, Southern Gospel listeners tend to gravitate to other quartets.
That needs to stop because the Down East Boys has the best Southern Gospel quartet album released in 2016; Ransomed.
Top (5) Best Songs From The Album: (1) “One Way, One Name, One Door”, (2) “The Song Of The Ransomed”, (3) “I Still Remember”, (4) “That Wonderful Land” and (5) “Now A Witness Am I”.
Legacy Five already landed in the annual countdown when their 2016 album release, In The Hands Of A Carpenter, ranked 10th. Readers of this blog also chose “In The Hands Of A Carpenter” as best recorded song in the 3rd annual Southern Gospel Views from the Back Row honors.
“In The Hands Of A Carpenter” also finds a home in my annual countdown, as it ranks 4th among the best recorded Southern Gospel songs of the year.
Lee Black and Jerry Salley penned this masterpiece, sung by Legacy Five pianist, Trey Ivey.
