    I love all five of these. Newsboys are probably my favorite on this list; their music always has a positive sound to it 🙂

    I was a little disappointed to not see TobyMac here. He is continually putting out new music that is both godly and very fun to listen (and dance)too.

    I love The Newsboys, but I’m not such a big fan of their new style. I like their older songs a lot, but they seem to have lost something with this last album… Does anyone else think that, or is it just me?

    Anyways, I am a really big fan of Tenth Avenue North, and I also really like Matthew West. I wish you’d feature Britt Nicole, because she’s a great ‘Christian pop’ artist! I also Audrey Assad, although she’s a little less pop…

    A cool story… A boy who likes me in my college class isn’t a Christian. But earlier in the semester, he was taking me somewhere, so he turned on a Christian radio station because he “thought it was what I would listen to.” A couple weeks later while I was watching him try to fix his car, he asked me to turn the key for him. When I did, I found he still had it playing. When I asked about it, he said “Yeah, I kind of like it because it doesn’t have commercials.” I don’t know if God will use that in his life… but I sure pray He will!

    I thank God for Christian music all the time, because I listen to it ever day, and it has helped me through so much! My favorite bands/artists right now are Tenth Avenue North and Jonny Diaz. 🙂

    I have grown to love Christian music. There are so many types of it that you can enjoy it at any time! Toby Mac has great fun dancing music and Tenth Avenue North is amaze! I hope girls are taking time to listen to lyrics and know what songs they listen to and how they can inspire or distract you! Thanks for sharing these wonderful artists!
