The NewsBoys on Music Monday
It's been three weeks since The Sheepdog had a Music Monday and he's having withdrawals. After a long vacation and some time to get caught up from being gone, it's time to get rockin' again. We'll do that today with the NewsBoys first appearance on Music Monday.
This band has been one of Christian music's most poplar bands for the last several years producing over a dozen albums and rocking music fans across the globe. They also accounted for what may have been the most shocking music news of 2009 when lead singer Peter Furler announced he was leaving the band to spend more time with his family. Many wondered what the band's future would be like until it was announced that Michael Tait, formerly of dc Talk, would replace Furler. Tait is as talented as Furler, so I felt the band's future remained bright. I couldn't have been more correct as is evidenced in today's video of the band's first single from the Tait era - "Born Again" from the album Born Again. Enjoy.
