    Cool Favorite Contemporary Christian singers/bands

    liz278 and I got into a discussion off thread about our favorite CC singers and bands. I thought we should have a thread just for this discussion.

    Here are a few of mine in no real order - a lot of these are bit older, the current CC is rather bland -though I'd love recommendations.

    Third Day
    Jars of Clay
    Caedmon's Call
    Audio Adrenaline
    Skillet
    Switchfoot
    Newsboys
    Steven Curtis Chapman
    Michael W. Smith
    Micheal Card
    Jennifer Knapp
    Flyleaf
    Reliant K
    Out of the Gray
    Red
    Rebecca St. James
    Six Pence None the Richer

    Some really old stuff
    2nd Chapter of Acts
    Randy Stonehill
    Amy Grant - earlier work
    Petra
    Keith Green

    This is just a list - Hopefully we cannot only make lists but also discuss the artists and their work.

    Even though my stance on religion is shaky and questionable, I love Christian songs lol. Flyleaf's probably my favorite. I also like BarlowGirl and sometimes Relient K.

    Funny you should mention Six Pence None the Richer. My friend and I were just discussing them!

    My favorite band is NewsBoys. I also like Casting Crowns - their new song helps me every day when dealing with the people I deal with! My favorite artist has always been Michael W Smith. But I have really started liking Chris Tomlin - his songs do all start sounding the same but I love his heart. Others are Matt Redman, Matthew West (Forgiveness), Jason Grey (Remind Me Who I Am), and Amy Grant

    I like DC Talk too. Did you know that one of the writers on Kelly's song "Cry" was Mark Lee Townsend who was a member of dc Talk and produced the 2006 Jennifer Knapp's Live album. He has also produced other Christian rock bands and is closely tied to Reliant K.

    I hope some of you might like to support Francesca Battistelli. (She is the cousin of Ashley Monroe's backing singer, Sarah Zimmerman, whose songs have been sung by "Scarlet" on the TV show "Nashville").

    Francesca, who has been Grammy nominated in a previous year for Contemporary Gospel, is making her debut at the Grand Ole Opry.
    Here she is singing a Christmas song (The baby is hers)




    The Contemporary Christian genre seems very different from Country Gospel - to my ears, it sounds almost indistinguishable from Pop (which is not a direction I feel at home in). However, after listening to other songs like Francesca's commercial recording, "Strangely Dim", I feel I have a better understanding of where Carrie and David Hodges were going musically with "See You Again"
