Artist Bios:

Mac Powell is an American singer, songwriter, producer, and musician who formed the Christian rock band Third Day with guitarist Mark Lee, with both of them being the only continuous members of the band prior to their disbandment in 2018. Powell also delves into country music, having released several independent country albums. As of 2021, he continues his career in Christian music as a solo artist.

Powell won Male Vocalist of the Year at the Gospel Music Association's 2002 Dove Awards.

After his family moved from Alabama to Georgia, Powell attended McEachern High School in Powder Springs, Georgia, where he met Lee and became involved in a band known as "Nuclear Hoedown". This experience resulted in further collaboration when he began writing songs about his faith, formed a Christian band called Third Day. Powell lives in Atlanta, Georgia, with his wife, Aimee and five children.

Former lead singer of the band, Third Day, and 4-time Grammy Award winner (as well as 24 Gospel Music Association Dove Awards)

Brandon Heath was born in Nashville, Tennessee, and was raised by his divorced mother for five or six years before she remarried. Heath said that during his early life, he grew bitter towards his family. He was given a guitar as a Christmas gift at the age of 13, and around the same time he began writing his first songs. Heath was a choir member and was encouraged by his teacher to pursue music. He also expanded his spiritual horizons by going on faith missions to India and Ecuador, thus setting the table for the mix of religion and music that would soon fuel his professional life.

Heath grew up nonreligiously, but was invited to attend Malibu Club, a Christian Young Life camp as a teenager. While attending Malibu Club at age 16, Heath said he "heard about Jesus for the first time"; he said he never really went to church until attending the camp, and stated that Young Life "showed me Christ and got me plugged in to a church".[6] After high school, he became a leader for the camp and is still involved with Young Life across the United States.[6] Heath attended Middle Tennessee State University and earned a BA in English. After his guitar was stolen in early 2000, he compiled a demo CD of his songs for sale to help pay for a new guitar

Carrie Underwood surprised her husband by having Heath sing his song "Love Never Fails" for the first dance at Underwoods wedding. She had earlier told People Magazine that she was in love with Heath's voice.

Heath married his girlfriend, Siebe, on May 25, 2014. Their daughter Palmer Brown Heath was born on December 15, 2017. Heath is a 6-time Gospel Music Association Dove Award winner

Jonny Diaz is a contemporary Christian artist originally from Lakeland, Florida. His song "More Beautiful You" has charted on American Christian music charts.

Diaz released his first album Shades of White in August 2003 right before he began his second year of college; his second album, Everyday God, was also released during college.

Diaz's major hit song, More Beautiful You, tells young women that they are beautiful the way they are. Diaz said "I hope to tell females the truth found in God's Word, that there could never be a more beautiful you."

His music career was essentially started by leading worship for the youth group of the First Presbyterian Church in Lakeland, FL. After graduating from high school, Diaz was offered a full athletic scholarship to play baseball for Florida State University. Diaz was the fourth of four brothers to get a college baseball scholarship. His brother, Matt Diaz was a professional baseball player in the major leagues. Diaz played on the team for one year, but felt God calling him to pursue music."
