Say Amen ... Hymns & Songs of Faith
Style: Affective renditions of timeless hymns; compare to Randall Goodgame, Sara Groves and Selah Top tracks: "Just As I Am," "Say Amen," "If I Can Help Somebody"

In a nutshell: Having spent the past year shuffling between Nashville and Jackson, Mississippi to help her mom battle cancer, Ginny Owens recorded Say Amen as both a testament to her family's faith in God through the ordeal and a tribute to her own rich church heritage. Playlisting soulful originals next to Sunday standards, Say Amen interpolates old and new to create a traditional-but-not-typical track listing. If ever there were an artist in Christian music to dress these historic hymns with fresh perspectives it is Ms. Owens. With so much raw emotion and poignant phrasing dictating each line, Say Amen is the pearl in Owens' treasure trove of recordings.?
