    That's a insult to a great musician.

    The local radio station here, KLRC , has won the small market station of the year 2 years in a row. I haven't heard if they were nominated this year.

    Mike, I assume you are referring to Rich Mullins. I wish he was still around writing and singing like only he could.

    That's a insult to a great musician.</font>[/QUOTE]Mike...I didn't post that quote because I agreed with it,but because it is...like most good quotes...interesting,provocative and debatable. [​IMG]

    Comparing Nichole Nordeman to Rich Mullins is a stretch,yes. However,I wouldn't dismiss her out of hand. Nichole may be pretty and blonde,but she is actually a thoughtful and cerebral lyricist and songsmith as well as a talented musician,and she doesn't fall into the sugary bubblegum pop category.

    An example of Nichole's lyrics:
    To Know You Lyrics
    Words by Nichole Nordeman
    Music by Nichole Nordeman & Mark Hammond

    It’s well past midnight
    And I'm awake with questions that won’t
    Wait for daylight
    Separating fact from my imaginary fiction
    On this shelf of my conviction
    I need to find a place
    Where You and I come face to face

    Thomas needed
    Proof that You had really risen
    Undefeated
    When he placed his fingers
    Where the nails once broke Your skin
    Did his faith finally begin?
    I've lied if I've denied
    The common ground I've shared with him

    And I, I really want to know You
    I want to make each day
    A different way that I can show You how
    I really want to love You
    Be patient with my doubt
    I'm just tryin’ to figure out Your will
    And I really want to know You still

    Nicodemus
    Could not understand how You could
    Truly free us
    He struggled with the image
    Of a grown man born again
    We might have been good friends
    Cuz sometimes I still question, too
    How easily we come to You

    No more campin’ on the porch of indecision
    No more sleepin’ under stars of apathy
    And it might be easier to dream
    But dreamin’s not for me
