    I'm looking for new cds to listen to while I'm driving in the car because the right kind of music helps me enjoy driving more.

    I've recently bought Kirk Franklin's new cd, Hello Fear(I don't normally listen to his cds but this new cd is sooo catchy and I love it since the words speak to me and make me feel good!)

    I like all of the songs on that cd but looking for some new cds to buy for driving especially Christian cds. :)

    Definitely get Michael W. Smith's CDs. He's a contemporary Christian singer that my BF likes who I've come to like as well. His CDs called Stand and Healing Rain are nice. His latest called Wonder is really great. It's in my car right now & I love just about every song on there. Look here:

    My favorite is "Lost and Found." It's just 2 guys (think Simon and Garfunkel) but they're funny. Try "Lions"

    Well, if you're into Kirk, check out WOW Gospel 2011, and for that matter back issues as well! They tend to have the top Gospel songs.

    I haven't listened to much Christian music in a long, long time. When I did, I loved Switchfoot for car drives. Also, Toby Mac's first CD was good for driving.

    I love Kirk Franklin and Michael W. Smith also. You might like the Apologetix--they take oldies, classic rock, soul, rap, etc. and do Christian parodies on them. They are great! Like Bethlehemian Rhapsody, YHWH (like YMCA), etc.
