CCM Staff & Contributors Pick Our Favorite Albums for 2018!

We polled our staff writers at CCM for their favorite albums in an attempt to generate a master list. While there was great variety among our staff, it was clear that a few albums made their way into the heads and hearts of everyone across the board.

Pardon the Introduction: The Gray Havens

For our first Pardon the Introduction, we’re excited to feature The Gray Havens. Dave and Licia Radford, a husband/wife duo from Illinois, blend indie folk sensibilities and gorgeous pop soundscapes, but it’s the depth of their songwriting and storytelling that’s especially noteworthy.

The Gray Havens Have Released Their Fourth Studio Album ‘She Waits’

The Gray Havens released their fourth studio album, She Waits, through Artist Garden Entertainment on October 5. Produced by Ben Shive (Colony House, Ellie Holcomb), She Waits, chronicles a band at their apex, stretching their sound in new directions while maintaining the song-craft that so distinguishes them. The new eternity themed album includes songs that take on the structure of story, some epic and metaphorical and others profound in simplicity.
