FFH - Wide Open Spaces
The name "FFH" may not mean anything to you, unless you are familiar with this veteran CCM band. Whether you're a fan or not, I think this is one of the most surprising albums I heard recently. In a nutshell, these songs were born out of pain. After the band went on a hiatus, singer Jeromy Deibler was diagnosed with MS. I'll spare the details here since you can look up other interviews online that cover his story. This album is worth checking out, especially to hear some very honest songwriting that doesn't hide the pain that comes in life. And yet, the album still leaves room for hope. I honestly didn't expect to be writing about a FFH album, but this one was a nice surprise.
