OFFICIAL CHRISTMAS COUNTDOWN:
ARTIST OF THE DAY
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. 20 #1 Christian radio hits - Dove Awards and nominations - GRAMMY nominations - They guys are headed into their fourth decade of music and just keep getting better!
Most bands that remember the hay-day of the music industry have a hard time embracing the new world order; a world where people download singles, don't always buy full albums and expect something spectacular at a concert or they'll just watch video footage posted on YouTube. But Newsong embraced the change - leading the charge amongst Christian groups by frequently offering free downloads and founding the WinterJam tour - which has featured a full festival line-up of the best Christian music has to offer - all for around $5 a head!
A few years ago, NewSong wrote a song that will bankroll the group for as long as they want to keep making music. The Christmas Shoes took off on Christmas stations across the country and was even turned into a TV movie for CBS.
