Supple ballads and funky pop songs from one of CCM’s finest.

It's hard to get enough of singer Ginny Owens'uplifting 2005 album. The young blind singer's fourth release, it not only was the first album to show her full range as a singer and a songwriter, it's arguably the best CCM release of all of that year. Released on legendary artist Michael W. Smith's Rocketown label, the album's supple ballads and funky pop songs outshone anything on mainstream radio, save perhaps Fiona Apple. Ginny's album is the kind of non-preachy and exceptional record you just want everyone to hear; introspective yet soulful, it's an ideal record for turning on someone to this music.
