Two years after the release of her Sandy Hook shooting-inspired album Need You Now, acclaimed Christian singer Plumb is back with what could possibly be her most raw and compelling project yet and she's not afraid to let it be known that she's been through some things.
Exhale, which debuted at No. 1 on iTunes earlier this month, marks the Nashville-based singer's seventh studio album and she recently shared with The Christian Post how overcoming a number of life's hurdles, including the near demise of her marriage, inspired the new album.
"...I just made it with a completely new heart, a different head space, a different agenda," Plumb, 40, told CP about Exhale. more >>
