Third Day, Josh Wilson & Colton Dixon - TONIGHT! See you there!
ARTIST OF THE DAY
This former teacher, who lives in Minnesota with her husband and their three kids probably wouldn't strike you as a famous songwriter if you caught her in the grocery store or out at the park playing - but she's already a legend in Nashvillian circles.
When it comes to songwriting, Sara Groves influences the influencers. Her most vocal admirers range from pioneers of Christian worldview music, including Randy Stonehill, Michael Card and Charlie Peacock, to her peers today, Natalie Grant, Jars of Clay, Nichole Nordeman, Point of Grace and Bethany Dillon.
Sara Groves started writing songs when she was four years old. She describes her youth as being "lonesome", and she wrote about deep issues while still in junior high school. Eventually, she took a songwriting course, prompted by her husband, and she began to take the art seriously.
Home Life: Sara and her family are busy trying to sell their house and close on a hundred year old church building in St. Paul, MN. Their goal is steadily renovate the building to serve as both their family residence and an art hall for the Twin Cities. They got the idea from projects done in Nashville and Dallas by Sara's mentor and producer, the legendary Charlie Peacock.
