    Special Rich Mullins Tribute

    Special Rich Mullins Tribute

    On September 19, 1997, the world said goodbye to one of the most prolific and, sometimes controversial, Christian artists of his day, Rich Mullins. Mullins' soared to CCM stardom with hits like "Awesome God" and "Sometimes by Step", but his deep convictions and poetic mind prevented him from relishing in his fame. Like Keith Green before him, he walked to the beat of his own drum and did the music he wanted. Tragically, his life was cut short in an automobile accident.
    In this episode, we talk to four CCM artists who knew Rich, and they give us some insight in to the man Rich was behind the scenes, as well as tell some interesting tales of their encounters with him. Join us for this very special episode of Jesus Freaks: Vinyl to Digital, as we pay tribute to Rich Mullins and feature some of the music he brought us.

    Special Thanks to Russ, Lee, Mark Gersmehl, Lary Dean and Randy Stonehill for their contributions to this episode.

    Russ Lee (Newsong)

    Russ Lee (Newsong)

    Russ Lee wasn't raised in a Christian home. In fact, by the time he was 17, he was already dealing drugs. But he knew there was something more and he was missing out. One night, with his drugs still in the trunk of his car, he attended a church service that changed his life. That began a path that would take him to fronting one of the most iconic CCM groups, Newsong, as well as embarking on his own solo career. This week, we talk to Russ about his life, faith and the choices he made along the way, which included leaving Newsong, and then coming back years later.

Fans of 80s and 90s Christian Music will love this

Love hearing where they are now. Jason does a great job at asking the questions we all want to know. And playing excerpts of classic CCM songs.
