ARTIST OF THE DAY
Tenth Avenue North

Tenth Avenue North was born when Mike Donehey and Jason Jamison met at their Christian collge, Palm Beach Atlantic University in West Palm Beach, Florida. The duo began writing and performing songs together, recruiting Jeff Owen to play guitar. Getting some experience underneath their belts, the new band began booking themselves in churches and youth camps from Florida to Colorado. When they weren't in class, they were making music.

Debut Dove: Their first year out as a band, 10th Ave. North won the Dove Award for New Artist of the Year (2009)!

Golf: The band hosted their first ever golf tournament last summer, enlisting musical friends tobyMac and NeedToBreathe to raise funds for a good cause - and rock some awesome golf outfits.

Tonight’s the night! Join us for the Thrive Tour at the Wicomico Youth & Civic Center!

ARTIST OF THE DAY
Casting Crowns

Even as Casting Crowns has become Christian music's most successful act, Mark Hall and his fellow band members have continued working at their home churches.

After all the accolades, all the awards, all the time on the road and in the studio, why does Casting Crowns continue to do what they do? The answer is simple: It’s their calling – God’s calling on the lives of these seven committed and talented musicians. To pour their lives into the students and families God has placed in their paths. To set discipleship to music. To challenge and strengthen the body of Christ.

It’s what brought them together in the first place and what keeps them going.

ARTIST OF THE DAY
Laura Story

Laura Story won a GRAMMY and several Dove Awards for her song Blessings. Her lyrics remind us that God works in ways that we would prefer He didn't - but that His ways are truly better. It was a hard learned lesson. For several years Laura has walked a dark path with her husband Martin Elvington. Just a year after they married Martin was diagnosed with a brain tumor. He was kept alive with a breathing machine and surgeons operated multiple times trying to save his life. Through the process Martin lost much of his vision and continues to suffer severe memory loss.

Like the story of Job, God has poured out tremendous blessing on Laura and her family after a very difficult time. Laura and Martin welcomed their first child last Summer (daughter, Josie). She continues to serve at a mega-church in Atlanta where she teaches a new generation how to lead worship.

ARTIST OF THE DAY
for King & Country

Joel and Luke are brothers. And they have five other siblings as well. One of whom is Rebecca St. James. Though born in Australia, they were raised in Nashville, TN and on the road with their concert promoting father and Christian music superstar sister. They were literally born into the music industry - like royalty.

Luke says, “We want to deliver a message that is about believing in something much bigger than oneself. You can confidently go through the ups and downs in your life because you know that life isn’t all about you and what you do but rather the hope and salvation of Christ.”

The Bible: Millions watched the epic mini-series on The History Channel - and millions heard music from for King & Country - they were featured in commercials for the television event and on the official soundtrack!

Mahwadge: Last summer, Joel married long-time girlfriend Moriah Peters - an amazing Christian singer/songwriter in her own right!

ARTIST OF THE DAY
Julian Drive

Shane Bowers (vocals, guitar) and Shaun Bennett (keyboard, guitar) formed the nucleus of the band while leading youth worship at church in their small hometown in rural Clarke County, Georgia. With the help of a few fellow friends they elevated the level of intensity from just another youth group worship band to a full fledged, no-holds-barred, ministry-oriented, Southern alt-rock band.

In recent months, Shaun and other band members decided to retire from life on the road. Shane Bowers continues to make music, tour and lead worship.

ARTIST OF THE DAY
All Things New

On the surface, singer Garrett Hornbuckle, drummer Luke Wycuff, bassist Joshua Schou, and guitarist Jeff Stein are young and easygoing: two guys met playing junior high baseball together and music runs in several of their families. But dig a little deeper and you’ll find godly men who know too much too soon about broken homes, broken faith, and broken hearts – and on the flipside what it means to be restored, accepted and made new.

The origins of All Things New date back to the guys’ mid-teen years as a six-piece outfit born from different Fellowship of Christian Athletes worship bands. The four young men from Florida have experienced different lives but are very much on the same page with this first batch of songs they wrote together.

Last year the band made their debut, opening up for the Newsboys in the Spring, saddling up next to The Rhett Walker Band in the Fall - and now they've started 2014 on tour with Francesca Battistelli and Sanctus Real. Take notes. That is how you launch a career!

ARTIST OF THE DAY
Rita Springer

"My heart has always been to see people come into a perspective of worship that leads them to lifestyle membership and true ownership in Jesus. I have learned that He truly is the Best Friend, Father, Savior, and Lover of my soul." - Rita Springer

Rita Springer has recorded over half a dozen albums and toured the world, sharing her music and her heart with anyone who will listen. Her powerful vocals, unabashed lyrics, and philosophy of complete and utter openness before God have made her stand out in the worship community. Rita's live albums capture her passion for unscripted, spontaneous worship.

After years of sensing God was calling her to step up her responsibilities in mentoring the next generation of women in the worship arts, Rita Springer started DIVE (Deep Innovative Vertical Expression) - a mentoring program that focuses on small groups of women.

Gifted: Rita has been playing piano and writing music since the age of 11. More recently, she launched a clothing line called WEARING JUSTICE - and also speaks at the Finding Eve conferences for women.

ARTIST OF THE DAY
Jars of Clay

Jars of Clay formed in 1994, when Dan Haseltine and Charlie Lowell became friends at Greenville College. By the end of 1995, few had not heard their breakout song Flood. Ever since, this college rock band has pursued their art form with relentless touring, recording and writing.

Discography: To date, Jars of Clay has released 14 albums! Including their new release Inland.

Blood|Water Mission: Lead singer Dan Haseltine visited Africa in 2002, which in turn inspired the founding of Blood:Water Mission, a non-profit organization created to raise awareness and money for the poverty and AIDS stricken regions of the continent. The name is derived from, as Haseltine says, "The two things Africa needs most" - clean blood and clean water. B:W kicked off the 1000 Wells project, an effort to have a thousand new wells built throughout Africa and just last year they met their goal of providing clean water to 1,000 African communitiest. Former Bassist for Jars of Clay Aaron Sands serves as Administrative Director for the project.
