Christian Band Named MSN Artist of the Year

Alternative worship artist David Crowder and his band were named Artist of the Year at the MSN Music portal, beating out Prince, Christina Aguilera, INXS, and Kenny Chesney.

The band received an overwhelming number of votes from fans, which was decided solely through online voting.

David Crowder Band recently performed at the mega collegiate Passion07 conference, alongside worship leaders Matt Redman, Charlie Hall, and Chris Tomlin.

Known to capture the attention of mainstream media, such as the New York Times, CNN, and FOX News, the band is known for pushing musical boundaries.

In addition, David Crowder Band was the first Christian artist to foster a partnership with M-Audio/Propellerhead’s Reason software, and Crowder is the namesake behind premiere guitar maker Tom Anderson Guitarworks’ Crowdster Acoustic and the DCB-inspired guitar, The Atom.

An engaging headline band, Crowder has also toured with Michael W. Smith, MercyMe and Third Day, and continues to be a featured band at Passion gatherings.
