Get In I'm Driving
by Ginny Owens
Released: Sep 2011
Label: SoulStride Records (SOR)
From the tongue-in-cheek title (Owens has been blind since early childhood) to the empowering feel, this album makes it clear that Ginny is firmly in the driver's seat. Chronicling the past several years of her life, this batch of songs was inspired by several moves -- first to New York City, then home as her mom battled cancer, and finally back to Nashville. The change in emotional scenery as well gave her plenty to draw on when writing. Overall, there's a fun, funky, soulful sound that permeates the entire album, whether she's singing about a friend's adoption or her own personal journey.
