About the CD: The latest album from the Nashville Tribute Band focuses on Jesus Christ by way of fourteen new songs composed as a tribute to the Savior. Each song presents a unique perspective on Christ through the eyes of those who walked and talked with Him, including John the Baptist, a blind man on the street, the woman taken adultery, the soldier and the thief at the Crucifixion, and the Apostle Peter. Several songs are written to be stand-alone numbers that focus on the big picture of Christ's ministry, and other songs are tender portrayals from unique individual perspectives.

My Review: I saw in the newspaper the other day that this CD was number 10 on the Billboard Christian chart and it's easy to see why. I loved every one of the songs. I liked the unique way that the Bible stories were portrayed on this CD, I never would have thought to have wondered what someone like Pilate's wife would have been thinking for example. I loved the fun country sound to the songs, there's even one that almost has a rap/country sound that I found interesting at first but really grew on me as I listened to the words and the meaning of the song. I felt like this whole CD is really capped off by The Greatest Story, I really loved this one and it has a really amazing message. This is the first CD by The Nashville Tribute Band I've listened to, but I'm definitely going to find their previous CD's when I get a chance and listen to the rest. I loved this one, go check it out for yourself!
I was given a CD in exchange for an honest review.
