AllMusic Review by

Retiring CCM duo Watermark caps off their career with A Grateful People, a live album recorded at their farewell show. Recorded in front of a small audience at their hometown church in Brentwood, TN, this 65-minute set is an intimate overview of the career of husband-and-wife team of producer/guitarist Nathan Nockels and singer Christy Nockels, including guest appearances from friends like Chris Tomlin, Point of Grace, and Charlie Hall, with whom the Nockels had previously performed in the quartet Sons and Daughters. Having tended toward the more soft rock/adult contemporary side of contemporary Christian music for most of their career, there's little gospel-style intensity to this music, even on the audience participation tune "Take Me There," but the duo performs with verve and obvious enthusiasm throughout.
