About Ginny Owens:

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.

While I wouldn't qualify this music CD as one of my favorites (I'm more of a hard rock kind of girl), I did like several of the songs:
Get In, I'm Driving
Before You Fly
Joined at the Heart
Better Off
Lay It Down

This CD is a mix of Pop, R&B, and Jazz, which makes it interesting to listen to.  The songs don't all sound the same.  Ginny's voice is beautiful and her lyrics are uplifting.  This is a very good Christian music CD.  Watch for it to be released on September 13.

I love all kinds of music. I guess right now my favorite would be This Big by Scotty Mccreary.

She has a pretty voice.

I have too many favorites too mention, but one that I always love to hear is Jesus Take the Wheel from Carrie Underwood.
