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 classicly 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!

After nearly a decade away, award winning front-man Russ Lee returned to the group.  Give Yourself Away was the result - an album that sounds like Newsong AND the 21st century. Give Yourself Away was once again produced by Charlie Peacock (the guy behind every awesome DC Talk album) and features the vocal harmonies you expect from Newsong, but a punch of fresh musical perspective.

Legit: Newsong founded WinterJam - an American tour that has featured everyone from Newsong and TobyMac to MercyMe and Mandisa.  It's a roving music festival that refuses to charge more than $10 a person - bringing the music you love to the masses!

Studio: Newsong is back in the studio working on a new project this summer!
