You are a survivor!

Lacey Sturm Releases 'State Of Me' Globally

My throwback song of the week is “Extreme Days” by TobyMac. While Skillet is what got me into concerts at 13 years of age and quickly became my favorite band…..Toby’s music in DC Talk and his solo career is what first got me into Christian music in the first place as a child. To this day he remains one of my favorite musicians of all time. Check out the song below!

That ends this week’s rock news roundup. I hope you all have a great rest of your week and may God bless and keep you all!
