5. RANDY TRAVIS
Around the Bend 
(Warner Bros.)

This articulate storyteller raises the bar on his own fairytale career. Easily one of his best.

6. FAMILY FORCE 5
Dance or Die 
(Tooth & Nail)

Forget the coffin. Catch me under the disco lights with the crunk-rock characters from the family.

7. MARY MARY
The Sound
(Integrity/Columbia)

A little modern day Motown for yo’ mama and you. These sisters are on fire!

8. SANDI PATTY
Songs for the Journey 
(INO)

Packing out concerts 30 years into the game, this legend’s music is still popular. Don’t be afraid to crank it up.

9. JONEZETTA
Cruel to be Young 
(Tooth & Nail)

This is the road trip album for 2008. Creative and fun; just turn it up and drive.

10. TRAVIS COTTRELL
Ring the Bells
(Word)

If Christmas sounds this good, I’ll take it all year long.
