Essential Albums 2011: Folk/Americana/Country and Worship

2011 was an incredible year in music. The last twelve months have seen the release of some of the best albums in faith based music in three years, and when we say it was difficult to bring you the absolute essentials, we mean it. Every genre had game changing albums released on the public, some from artists you know and love, but we also saw masterful music flowing through new artists who are no doubt only at the beginning of their musical journey.

With way too much delay, we present to you our celebration of 2011 in music. Feel free to comment and tell us what you think.
