We Recommend - Chris Sligh, 'Running Back to You'

In my review of Chris Sligh’s record last April, I wrote that I wouldn’t be surprised if he garnered a nomination or two at this year’s Dove Awards. Well, now he’s nominated in perhaps the most sought after category for rising Christian music stars, New Artist of the Year! He may as well be the most deserving nominee in the category this year as well. Running Back to You was an incredibly impressive and surprising debut record – something that I personally wasn’t expecting. Sligh takes worship and makes it exceptionally relevant and unique, unlike artists such as Chris Tomlin and Casting Crowns, who haven’t given us anything exciting or fresh for years now (though the Gospel Music Association loves them more than anything; go figure). Chris Sligh’s passion for Christ and love for making career defining music are clearly evident on this record, and because of this, it’s definitely worth your time to give it a listen. ~ Logan Leasure
