Looking Back at Music in 2016

While 2016 has been a mix bag of ups and downs, this year has yielded a lot of good music. We would be remiss if we didn't take a little time to look back and appreciate some of our favorite tunes that came out over the last 12 months!

Favorite albums of the year

Unleashed was Andy's pick of this year's new albums. With a variety of styles present, along with the classic rock sound of Skillet, it is no wonder Andy loved it so much. ;) Andy even went to see them in concert in Minneapolis, MN back in August and thought they were awesome live! Earlier this year their single "Stars" was one of our featured songs. Click the pick above to learn a bit more about the inspiration of the song!

We Are Messengers was by far Kaitlyn's favorite album this year. Not only is their debut album full of great up beat songs, mixed with some worship, but the band also has a great testimony. Kaitlyn had the chance to meet lead singer Darren Mulligan at a conference earlier this year and was greatly impressed by his humility. For enduring such heart ache in his life, Darren has such a joy in the Lord that can only be explained by God's providence in his life.
