ARTIST OF THE DAY
Rhett Walker Band

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.

Both Walkers graduated high school, worked as much as they could and welcomed their first child, daughter Rileigh. Rhett began leading worship at his church. They continued to mature as both adults and followers of Christ. They had a second child, a son named Jett two years later. Throughout this time, Rhett led worship and made music whenever time afforded. His local success became regional success and eventually national recognition. This allowed him to quit working in a local factory and provide for his family with music.

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.

“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

ARTIST OF THE DAY
Hearts Of Saints

Hearts of Saints is a trio of worship leaders, whose sole purpose is to attract young people to the cross. Now two albums into their career, the band has honed their sound and worked hard to create anthemic music, focussed on glorifying God.

The band is made up of Craig Felker (frontman), Jesse Grisham (guitar) and Joel “Wolfman” Purdy (bass). They’ve worked closely with accomplished producers and songwriters; Ainslie Grosser (Jesus Culture, Matt Redman,) Michael Farren (Let the Worshippers Arise) and Grammy Award-winning producer Andy Hunt (Matthew West) in order to take all aspects of pride out of their work. Instead, they’ve focussed on the question “How can we best serve God’s Kingdom with music?”

Awesome: GRAMMY nominee & multiple Dove Award winner Natalie Grant chose to record the Hearts of Saints song For All Of Us for her latest album Hurricane.

ARTIST OF THE DAY
Selah

Just this past week Selah did something that had never before been done in Christian radio History! Their new song You Amaze Us debuted on the Inspirational Christian chart at the #1 spot. Let that sink in. As soon as the song came out - it shot to #1! Numero uno. The Big Kahuna! A round of applause for Selah, everybody!

From their inception, Selah has always been synonymous with hymns. In fact, the trio’s 1999 debut, Be Still My Soul, helped initiate a hymn revival in Christian music that is still thriving today.

Though the line-up has changed several times in the group’s 15-year history, right now Selah is comprised of Allan Hall, Amy Perry, and Todd Smith. As individuals and as a team, Selah has weathered many storms. From severe illness to even the death of a child - but the group has stayed faithful to what God has called them to do - to sing, to worship, and to tell people about Jesus Christ!

ARTIST OF THE DAY
Building 429

Jason Roy formed Building 429 to reach others with a story similar to his. He faced a hard childhood and found freedom and relief in the local church. The band's name comes from Ephesians 4:29 "Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen."

In The Beginning: Back in 2005, B429 won the Dove Award for New Artist of the Year.

Building 429 hopes the songs on the GRAMMY nominated album We Won’t Be Shaken 

will remind people they are more than conquerors in Christ. “We don’t want to spend a lot of time talking about who we were before Christ because the old is gone and new has come,” says lead singer Jason Roy. "We wanted to talk about how David is no longer shepherd boy. Now he’s King. We didn’t want to talk about Moses the stutterer. We wanted to talk about Moses the leader of the nation. We really felt like we wanted to make a record that said, ‘Stand up! You have been called. We are God’s children. Who can stand against what God has begun?"

ARTIST OF THE DAY
Michael W. Smith

Michael Whitaker Smith was born October 7, 1957 to Paul and Barbara Smith in Kenova, West Virginia. Michael was your typical Southern boy – active in baseball, his family’s church activities, and playing piano. He wrote his first song at age 5 (I’m sure it was precious) - but as a child, he longed to be a professional baseball player!

In 1982, Michael was asked to play keyboards in a band that was backing up Christian & Pop sensation, Amy Grant. Michael toured and wrote with Amy for years before launching his own solo career. In 1989 his song Go West Young Man began what would become one of the most legendary careers in Christian music.

From pavement pounding superstar of the 1990s, to record label founding, mega-producer artist who jets around the world on private planes - Smitty has sung for Presidents and orphans alike! According to his Twitter feed, this week he’s working on a new Christmas album with Country superstars Lady Antebellum. But that’s just another day in the life of a guy who’s sold more than 15 million albums, scored 28 No. 1 hits, earning three GRAMMYs and more than 40 Dove Awards.

ARTIST OF THE DAY
Jonny Diaz

Jonny comes from a family of overachievers. Both he and two of his brothers went to Florida State University on full baseball scholarships! These guys are talented - two of them even went pro! But a year into college, Jonny found his calling was music and not playing ball. Turning away from a full ride, he focused on what God called him to do - and it is paying off in spades!

From the beginning of his music career, Diaz’s desire has been to write songs that entertain, encourage and challenge fellow believers. Jonny Diaz on writing songs: “I attempted to break free from some of the traditional confines of Christian music, but I couldn’t get away from the fact that most of my songs revolve around my relationship with Christ. He is the focus of my life and I find it impossible to honestly record my emotions and my journey without including Him."
