COMMON STRINGS, “Somewhere In Glory,” Rural Rhythm Christian. 12 tracks.VARIOUS ARTISTS, “Look To The Light: Songs of Faith from the pen of Rick Lang,” Rural Rhythm Christian. 14 tracks.

Christmas is the time of year when more people turn to gospel music for faith and inspiration.

And Rural Rhythm Christian is offering a couple of new gospel albums this year.

Common Strings, the husband-wife (or wife-husband, if you prefer) team of Darron and Vanessa Nichols is featured on “Somewhere In Glory,” a collection of “Appalachian gospel” songs.

It’s bluegrass with an emphasis on mountain gospel.

The couple is joined on the project by Dale Ann Bradley, Steve Gulley, Mike Hartgrove, Phil Ledbetter, Brandon Rickman and Sammy Shelor.

Darron Nichols wrote two songs — “Glorious Power” and “Golden Streets of Home.”

Highlights include “Hardhat For A Halo,” a song about a dying miner; “Preachin’ By The Roadside”; “Nothing But The Blood”; and the somewhat eerie “The Revelation.”

Rural Rhythm Christian has also turned to the work of Christian songwriter Rick Lang for an album of bluegrass gospel.

Russell Moore, Dale Ann Bradley, Junior Sisk, Jeff Parker, Barry Scott, Dale Perry, Jesse Brock, John Miller, Ron Stewart, Michael Cleveland, Roger Williams, Pete Soukas, Wyatt Rice, Ron Rice and Eric Seay are featured on this collection of 14 gospel songs.

    Darron; Love the song Midnight Georgia Freight Train…did you write it? Are the words published anywhere?
    Thanks, Mike in nevada

  3. Amazing blog! Do you have any recommendations for aspiring writers?
    I’m hoping to start my own site soon but I’m a little lost
    on everything. Would you propose starting with a free platform like WordPress
    or go for a paid option? There are so many options out there that I’m totally overwhelmed .. Any recommendations? Thank you!

      This started out as a column I wrote for the newspaper I work at — the Owensboro (KY) Messenger-Inquirer. The McClatchy/Tribute wire service distributes it.

      Then, when our paper got smaller and cut the column, I moved it to a blog.

      I didn’t even know how to set it up. A guy I work with did it for me.

      So, I’m probably not much help on this.

      I suppose that someone who knows how to make money could sell ads on a blog and make some. But I just do it for free.
