Ginny Owens "Get In, I'm Driving" CD Review and GIVE AWAY!

I was excited to get this CD for review.  We love getting new music to add to our library.  But when I put it in and actually loved it, that made it even better! lol

A bit about Ginny:

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.

We have had this CD going in the kitchen almost non-stop since the first day we put it in.  The music is catchy and the words poignant.  We really love this album.  I think we are going to have to go and find the rest of her albums now! lol

If you want to check it out for yourself, head on over to these websites and see what it's all about.  The album is releasing today so have a listen and then go buy it! ;-)


What's even better is that I have one to give away!

I usually find new music at the libraries I frequent. I don't trust iTunes because I don't like a lot of the content they select so at the library I know I can see exactly what I'm getting.

I'd like to win this for my oldest DD for Christmas :D

I usually hear songs I like on Christian radio, then go looking for their other music.
