Music Monday- Only Jesus from Charles Billingsley

I am so excited to tell all of y'all about the Music Monday selection today: "Only Jesus" from Charles Billingsley.


Oh man, I have been listening to this CD non-stop since I got it.  It is seriously THAT GOOD! I was chosen to be part of the Launch team for this CD and as part of that we were asked to share items that were shared with us.  For example, there was a behind the scenes video that I shared of the recording of "Jesus, Only Jesus" that features Charles (of course) and Travis Cottrell, Guy Penrod and Michael O'Brien.

That right there was enough to make me super excited about this CD!  I've been a fan of Charles Billingsley's since my first Women of Joy conference in 2009 at which he led the worship.  He has such a rich voice.  And then there is Travis Cottrell who leads worship at the Living Proof Live events with Beth Moore and who was at Women of Joy the second year I went.  And I have to say that I follow both of these gentlemen on Twitter, so I feel like we're best friends anyway (not in a creepy stalker way, but because they share snippets about their lives that are humorous and also you can see that they both have such a heart for Jesus!)  And then Guy Penrod who sang with the Gaithers (who aren't my favorite, but my husband just LOVES them).  So all that on one song- that is just fantastic anyway- was very thrilling...

But now that I have listened to the entire CD, I have to say that every song is just SO GOOD!  There are the familiar ones "Jesus, Only Jesus", "Mercy Tree", and "10,000 Reasons" but even the ones I didn't know have been easy to pick up and are already becoming stuck in my head.  It feels very much like a worship service on my way to work now! ;-) 

These songs are saturated in the Gospel and have already offered encouragement to me as well as times of praise.

Only Jesus is available for pre-order today on iTunes, Amazon, and www.charlesbillingsley.com and will be released for direct purchase tomorrow!  I highly recommend you pick-up (or download) this CD and when you do, I'd love to hear from you! You can let me know what you think in the comments below.


Love in Christ,

Alyson
