Music Review & CD Giveaway ~ Ginny Owens’ “Get In, I’m Driving”!

Photobucket

I was provided a copy of Ginny Owens’ new studio album titled “Get In, I’m Driving”! [which releases today September 13th!] and WOW! is it amazing! It reminds me of a mixture of the blues, jazz and modern…it’s really neat! I really enjoyed listening to it and couldn’t wait to put it in again and again.

There are 11 songs on the CD titled: Get In, I’m Driving, Mystery of Grace, Before You Fly, Rain, Joined at the Heart, Better Off, Lay It Down, Higher Ground, Daughter of Destiny, Better That Way and The Song.

I have a hard time describing CDs…but what I do know is that I *greatly* enjoyed it – so if you are looking for a new beat to some amazing Christian songs…try out Ginny’s new CD! You can purchase it HERE, or enter to win my giveaway!

About Ginny Owens
A three-time Dove Award winner, including the Gospel Music Association’s 2000 New Artist of the Year recipient, and multiple ASCAP Award winner, Ginny Owens has sold nearly one million albums. A top performer on the Christian radio charts with hits like “If You Want Me To,” “Free” and “I Wanna Be Moved,” among others, Owens’ music has impacted mainstream audiences at Lilith Fair, the Sundance Film Festival and the White House. Her music has received widespread film and television placement, including songs on the popular WB series’ “Roswell” and “Felicity.” Owens was featured on national television, including NBC’s “Today” and CNN, for her contribution to help rebuild New Orleans following Hurricane Katrina.

Born and raised in Jackson, Miss., Owens was discovering melodies on the piano almost before she could complete a sentence. Songs began to emerge from her fingers as the vision began to leave her eyes and by the age of three.  A degenerative eye condition left Owens completely blind.  Despite her physical challenge, Owens pursued a music career.  Songs provide a window into a world Owens can’t see and an outlet for her to express her thoughts and dreams. Owens’ unique musical style and inspirational lyrics continue to appeal to Christian and mainstream audiences alike.

In 2005 Owens launched The Fingerprint Initiative, a hands-on, non-profit organization designed to “bring hope to the world, one project and one touch at a time.” The organization has partnered with  and raised money for groups such as Compassion International, International Justice Mission and Habitat for Humanity.

You can purchase one of her songs over at iTunes.
