In June we encouraged everyone to go to MSNBC and vote for the David Crowder Band to be "Artist of the Month." Well they won! By a lot! We sing a lot of David Crowder songs in church, so this is totally cool. Christian Music is gaining widespread acceptance in the secular or "crossover' genres.
Another band that did really well this month was "UnderOath." Underoath defines themselves as "a Christian metal band from Florida." They are playing at Cornerstone Festival, one of America's premier Christian Music Festivals, this week (first week of July 2006.) Their CD debuted at number on the Billboard charts. That means they sold a LOT of Cd's in a week.
