I AM THEY ~ Faithful God
The new single from I AM THEY is based on Hebrews 10:23: “Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for He who promised is faithful.” The widescreen video is an instant favorite, based on a simple yet effective premise.
Casting Crowns ~ Start Right Here
The latest single from Casting Crowns is accompanied by a powerful video that amplifies the message from 2 Chronicles 7:14. The song begins with an indictment of the modern church, and challenges Christians to be active in their own communities:
to start right here.
Chris Young ~ If That Ain’t God
I heard this song for the first time while listening to country radio ~ it’s a wonderful expression of ordinary miracles,
accompanied by a simple yet effective video. There’s no album yet, just the single!
Cory Asbury ~ Sparrows
July 31 is shaping up to be a great day for Christian music! In addition to the Chris Tomlin album (announced below), Cory Asbury will release To Love a Fool, which includes the current Christian hit “The Father’s House” as well as the new single “Sparrows,” whose lyrics are perfect for our time.
Chris Tomlin ft. Florida Georgia Line ~ Thank You, Lord
What’s this, a new Chris Tomlin album featuring collaborations with friends such as Florida Georgia Line and Lady A? Yes, that’s right! We expect this to be the feel-good album of the summer, and it all starts here! (Release date: July 31.)
Cochren & Co. ~ One Day
One of the best songs for the current moment, “One Day” promises that one day there will be no illness, no racism, and no more tears, because God will replace all our pain with healing grace. The song was released as a single last fall but has struck a chord in recent weeks as people have discovered its message of hope.

Together (We’ll Get Through This)
This superstar matchup borrows a line from a Diana Ross song while striking a note of unity.
“There’s no mountain too high, no valley too low!”
