The Joy Ride 01/08/14

Josh Millwood - Wednesday, January 08, 2014
Winter won't last forever.

ARTIST OF THE DAY
JJ Weeks Band

The JJ Weeks Band, based in Macon GA, have toured extensively and released three independent projects. Each of the guys have been involved in ministry in some capacity since childhood. Whether singing solos, performing in church musicals, or leading worship, music and ministry have always gone hand in hand. That heart for ministry led Weeks to step out in faith and push for a career in music full-time. 

The past three years have been challenging to say the least - inspiring to speak the truth. Three years of incessant challenges from family deaths, a difficult pregnancy, and the subsequent health risks with a newborn, to the taxing lifestyle of being full-time touring musicians were all catalysts that birthed the band's latest album. 

"We want people to know that God has their back. That they can trust Him in the midst of the struggles of life because He loves us." - JJ Weeks

ARTIST OF THE DAY
Rhett Walker Band

“I’m blessed with a beautiful wife and two children who have walked with me every step of the way. My faith, my family, and my country are the most important things in my life." - Rhett Walker

Rhett Walker is the son of a preacher man - through and through. Raised in the deep South, expected to behave and perform as any preacher's kid is. But when Rhett's family up and moved when he was 16 and enjoying high school - Rhett rebelled. He got involved with a rough crowd, got in fights, began to drink and do drugs. In no time, Rhett was expelled from his new high school. His folks sent him to a private Christian school where he continued to push boundaries and got his new girlfriend pregnant.

And here's where Rhett Walker's story of repentance begins.

Rhett sat down with his pregnant girlfriend April and begged forgiveness. He and April got married (while still in high school). Rhett recommitted his life to Christ, threw out the drugs and by the power of the Holy Spirit began to prove his life change was the work of God.

The rebellious teenager became the courageous family man; those two scared kids who did everything wrong just a few years back are, by God’s grace, striving to do everything right and even counseling other couples using themselves as a cautionary tale.

It's just too much! Only a handful of sleeps til Christmas!

ARTIST OF THE DAY
Downhere

"We live in an age when the most basic assumptions of orthodox Christianity are being challenged. As a younger band we wrote a lot of songs aimed at pointing out problems and tearing down things that we believed were wrong. But now, at this stage in life, we’re much more interested in going back to the beginning, and using our gifts to reaffirm and shore up the foundations of the faith. We want to be a part of building up the church and preserving the culture."

Downhere is actually from up there - Canada. Jason and Marc - co-lead singers of Downhere - met in college and have been laughing, writing and playing music together for over a decade. It's that friendship and sense of calling that keeps Downhere plugging away, even though the past decade has been anything but kind to the recording industry.

Though the band has parted ways, the guys remain steadfast parts of each others' lives - and continue to produce musical expressions of their faith journey.

It's Friday!! Only 5 days left!

Verse of The Day

Fear not, o land; be glad and rejoice, for the Lord has done marvelous things! Joel 2:21 (KJV)


Amazing Fact

About one third of the human race has 20-20 vision. Glasses and contact wearers are hardly alone in a world where two thirds of the population have less than perfect vision. The amount of people with perfect vision decreases further as they age.


Scriptural Pursuit

Q: How many days was Jonah in the belly of the great fish?

ARTIST OF THE DAY
NewSong

After 30 years and 20 #1 radio hits - NewSong is still pushing the limits to reach a new generation for Christ. Members have come and gone - and some fresh young musicians have joined the core group to produce a sound that is both fresh and classic NewSong.

When Eddie Carswell and Billy Goodwin, who continue to lead the evolving group, started out in 1981 at Morningside Baptist Church in Valdosta, Georgia, neither of them imagined NewSong would repeatedly outdo itself for so many years. Now the guys are headed into their fourth decade of music and just keeps getting better!

A few years back, NewSong released a Christmas song that saw tremendous cross-over success. It spawned a Hallmark movie, plus sequels. That song was The Christmas Shoes. Perhaps one of the most polarizing Christmas songs of all time. If you love it, you really love it. If you hate it, you believe it is a blight upon humanity. There is no middle ground. But the success of that one song has gone on to bankroll the group for nearly a decade.

Trend-Setters: NewSong founded and continue to tour as a part of WinterJam. This massive multi-artist American tour brings Christian music's biggest acts to cities all across America and never charges more than $10. The goal - to bring the best music to everyone - and provide an incredible time of worship for the whole family!
