A touring legend and Christian radio hit-maker, NewSong is a Dove Award winner and GRAMMY nominee. The group has garnered 19 No. 1 singles, seven Dove Award nominations, numerous songwriting awards, and five of the Top 100 Christian radio singles of the past decade. Some of the songs for which they are best known include: “Arise, My Love,” “Red Letter Day,” “People Get Ready” and “The Christmas Shoes,” which was also the title of their first Christmas CD and a No. 1 mainstream AC radio single.
NewSong was originally founded in the early 80s when original members Eddie Carswell and Billy Goodwin along with several others served as the “house band” at their local church in Georgia.
Last year, NewSong entered a new phase of ministry with the release of Rescue, their FIRST worship project and FIRST live album with Integrity Music. They followed with the release of a Rescue DVD that featured concert and behind-the-scenes footage and interviews.
“Recording a worship project has been on our hearts for a while,” says Eddie Carswell of the album. “… I believe this project is part of a fresh wind that God is blowing across our ministry.”
Early this year, they wrapped their most successful “Jam” concert series with attendance of over 240,000 and over 7,400 people making commitments to the Lord at the events. They also began work on a new Christmas album, The Christmas Hope, which is due out this fall.
Over 25 years of ministry and going stronger than ever!
