Win a Free Crowder CD


I don’t know about you… but I love me some David Crowder. If I’m having a conversation about Christian worship, then you are going to hear me say the words “David Crowder.”

That’s why I was so truly psyched to hear that the David Crowder Band will be releasing their final Greatest Hits record, ‘The Essential Collection’ next week (May 21). It will include 10 of the bands biggest hits, 3 all-new remixes, and a brand new song by just Crowder himself. Check out the iTunes preview HERE.

Celebrating this release, I’m going to give away 5 CDs… one each to five of my blog readers. Simply use my comment feature stating where you live and your favorite Crowder song by far.

How’s that for simple?

I’ll randomly draw five winners and post them right here next week.

Wow… so many entries. I’m glad this is random. Tonight, in the LA airport after a long flight I scrolled the the names and dropped my curser 5 times. Here are the 5 winners. I’ll email you and we’ll send you the CD. The rest… pick it up on iTunes. It’s gonna be awesome! Thanks for participating!

  115. Chris says:

    I’m from KY but currently living outside Boston, so I’ll have to go with the foot stomping Crowder Band version of I saw the light! Always reminds me of my bluegrass roots.
