Like the best-selling novel and the new movie of the same name, this soundtrack to The Shack (buy) covers a lot of spiritually-enlightening ground, while helping further illustrate a story steeped in tragedy, depression, and ultimately, redemption. Even as a stand-alone listening experience, the collection of entirely exclusive material features many of the most significant names in pop, rock, country and contemporary Christian music, including Lady Antebellum, Dan + Shay, Francesca Battistelli and for KING & COUNTRY, plus several multiple collaborations (Tim McGraw and Faith Hill, Kelly Clarkson and Aloe Blacc, NEEDTOBREATHE and Lauren Daigle). Inspirational highlights abound with a stripped-down, string-soaked update of Skillet’s “Stars” taking the top spot, though there’s literally a little something for anyone even remotely keyed into today’s musical trends that are simultaneously seeking to pump up their faith.
