Get In, I'm Driving by Ginny Owens
"My suggestion to everyone is to simply turn over your keys to “Get In, I’m Driving” and let Ginny take you on a drive you will not soon forget."
In, I’m Driving Ginny Owens is announcing she
is back, and back with a furor. If you have the fortitude to as she says
in the first cut “Get In”, you will not be disappointed.
This 11-track set released on her new label partner, Soul Stride Records (part of EMI Gospel Distribution) is a mix of Blues, Pop and the lush Piano ballads that brought Ginny’s voice to our ears over a decade ago.
From the sultry piano ballads to the bluesy title track, this set is a reminder of Ginny’s vocal delivery. Stripping down the Stevie Wonder classic “Higher Ground” to just her voice and her piano, POWERFUL. It doesn’t get any better than “Rain”, “Joined At The Heart”, or “The Song”….OK, I’m a sucker for the ballad. “We are humbled to be part of a greater story written by the author of miracles and stars….” She sings in “Joined At The Heart”….” As this journey unfolds, there is one thing that we know – God has made it so we are joined at the heart”.
Describing the experience of creating this CD, Ginny says “…I’ve just finished my first experience driving a CD project, incorporating my favorite musical styles in a diverse array of songs…. I joke about driving a car and try my hand at “driving” my music, but there is no question who is driving my life. No matter how much I fight for the wheel, He continues to show me that my journey is not for me to drive—instead I look to Him to lead and hang on for the ride.”
My suggestion to everyone is to simply turn over your keys to “Get In, I’m Driving” and let Ginny take you on a drive you will not soon forget.
