Nelson's Nuggets: March 2003 in CCM

Big releases highlight this month, with new discs from Third Day and Chris Rice starting off March.  Relient K, Twila Paris, Verbs and Michael Card give a broad range of shoppers something to look forward to the following week.  A huge showdown is lining up on the 25th.  Superstar female artists Stacie Orrico, Jaci Velasquez, Plumb and Rebecca St. James show up with new discs.  St. James' CD is one of many "Greatest Hits" compilations, wherein the record companies add a few new tracks to a bunch of previously available music in an effort to get your hard-earned dollar.  Also on the 25th is the new Lost Dogs disc.  I can't encourage you enough to try this group out.  The Lost Dogs (Terry Taylor, Derri Daugherty, and Mike Roe) consistently display great songwriting and musicianship.
