Stop & Listen
Released: Sep 2009
She's been recording since age 14 and has always seemed mature for her age. Now at nearly 21, Bethany Dillon is a bona fide grown-up. Some major life changes -- including her marriage to Shane & Shane's Shane Barnard and a move to Dallas -- inspired the songs on Stop & Listen, Dillon's fourth release. This confessional disc is her most raw yet, exploring the failures and struggles as well as the joys of the Christian life. Los Angeles-based producer Marshall Altman was at the helm and brings a more layered approach to her earthy acoustic pop.
