The popular annual compilation returned in the fall of 2016 with WOW Hits 2017. This edition offers 33 -- or 39 in the bolstered deluxe edition -- of the biggest Christian songs from 2015 and the first half of 2016, including plenty of familiar names, like Needtobreathe, MercyMe, Natalie Grant, and Steven Curtis Chapman. Newer to the charts and also represented are acts such as Rend Collective and Jordan Feliz, whose breakthrough hit "The River" is included. ~ Marcy Donelson
