Ginny Owens CD: Get in I’m Driving (and Giveaway too!)
Maybe you are like me and you’re scratching your head going “Ginny Owens? Ginny Owens? Nope, I can’t quite place the name.” When I received the email offer to review this CD, I was unfamiliar with her name or her music. I checked out her website: Ginny Owens Music. After reading her story and listening to a clip of the music I knew I wanted to review the CD.
I’ve heard it said that the eyes are the windows to the soul. I would say that music is the bridge that connects two souls and can give us a glimpse of the soul that the eye can not.
From her Biography Tab:
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.
As a family we enjoyed listening to her new album Get In, I’m Driving. Her style is different and sometimes we wondered if she was exploring different styles because she hadn’t settled on one yet. Her unique style meant that each song was different. My husband said “she has a lot of energy.”
My teen girls all loved the album and each of them have their favorite songs. I know this is one album that we can bring along on car rides and everyone will enjoy it. There was something for everyone on this album.
