Nelson's Nuggets - August 2003 in CCM

August 2003 in CCM

As The Swirling Eddies would say, they're bringing out the Big Guns this month.  How well will the new discs from veterans such as Amy Grant, Petra and CeCe Winans perform?  It is up to you guys.  As well, we get welcome discs from other veterans such as Kim Hill, John Michael Talbot and Shirley Caesar.  As if that wasn't enough, many bright young talents are putting out their new projects this month, as well: Jill Phillips, Rock N Roll Worship Circus, Holly Nelson and Ten Shekel Shirt, among the many.  Buzz is extremely high on Robert Randolph & The Family Band.  It sure seems that there should be something for everyone in August.
