'Inner Journey': A Mix of Friends and Growth
Darin and Brooke Aldridge's recent album, 'Inner Journey,' is a true demonstration of how they’ve grown over the years. It showcases their incredible vocal harmonies, their ability to tell stories through music, and several special guests. Each track on the album is a gem, from their soulful rendition of "Every Time You Leave" to their upbeat cover of "Teach Your Children." Just in time for the Christmas season they've released a new album, "Hometown Holiday". It's definitely going on my wishlist from Santa this year.
