    139 - Bring Back the Boy Bands! (Anthem Lights)

    139 - Bring Back the Boy Bands! (Anthem Lights)

    It's entirely possible, likely even, that you were introduced to Anthem Lights through one of their medleys or mashups on social media. With close to 8 million followers across all platforms, their passion for creating family friendly entertainment is resonating with so many. The group stops in to share with us about why they have poured so much into these projects and about incorporating mainstream music in along with the Christian songs.
    If you've noticed that they've been a little quiet lately, it's because they have been focusing on their upcoming album of original music! The song "God Gave Me Freedom" has recently been released to radio, although the guys of Anthem Lights didn't expect it to be their next single. The group shares the story and the life behind the song and about the upcoming project.
    We couldn't end the episode without talking about influential vocal groups and boy bands. Anthem Lights talks about the groups that were most influential to them being at the spot they are today.

    138 - Brotherly Shenanigans (Consumed By Fire)

    138 - Brotherly Shenanigans (Consumed By Fire)

    The Ward brothers have been doing ministry through music for longer than they haven't at this point, which means they have lived a lot of life cooped up in enclosed spaces together. Funny enough, Caleb, Jordan, and Josh share that they were probably better behaved on the road when they were younger and their parents were their means of travel. The heart behind their hit song First Things First comes from the ups and downs of being brothers on the road: in the moments when they're getting on each other's nerves the most, keep the first things first.
    The Wards talk about the lessons their dad taught them and the influence he had on them. They share about their parents' legacy of church plants and support for their music career. They also talk about growing up together and which one of the brothers was the instigators and who got injured the most.

    137 - Healing After The Heartbreak (Blanca)

    137 - Healing After The Heartbreak (Blanca)

    Sometimes life hits us hard and in the ways we least expect it... and it can surface wounds we forgot that we had. When this happens, we can either sit in the hurt and the pain, or we can run to our God that can heal us. Blanca shares about her journey of healing coming out of some of the toughest seasons of her life.
    Blanca also chats with us about her Latin heritage that is infused in her music and her ministry. Part of her healing was discovering who Blanca really is, which included a trip to visit the places where her parents grew up. The healing journey she has been walking through has taken her from walking through life on autopilot to walking in joy in her identity, both heavenly and earthly.

    134 - Next Big Thing, Part 13 (CLINE)

    134 - Next Big Thing, Part 13 (CLINE)

    In this installment of the Next Big Thing series, we would like to introduce you to CLINE. The group is comprised of the siblings Darrick, Garrett, and Jacquelyn Cline. Garrett and Darrick are brothers, Jacquelyn is Garrett's wife and I'm sure they would all say she's there to make them sound and look good.
    While they are relatively new to the CCM and worship space, they are no strangers to the music industry. Jacquelyn has been in and out of studios, and Garrett and Darrick have been in the mainstream Country space as a part of Dylan Scott's band for almost a decade. The Cline's share their experience of being Christians in music and how they keep their faith strong in a mainstream band. They also share about listening to the assignments God gives you to share his word, whether it's staying home with kids, serving in your church, or on the road in a bar.
    The Cline's also share their journey in CCM to this point and how working with others and co-writing has been the key to finding their identity.
