1. Casting Crowns
The bridge in “Start Right Here” takes its cues straight from 2 Chronicles 7:14 (NLT): "Then if my people who are called by my name will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sins and restore their land." - @Casting Crowns

2. Zach Williams
"I wanted to write a song that just really touched on how imperfect we are as humans. For me, I know I struggle with feeling like I'm not worthy or good enough. I have my good days; I have my bad days just like everybody else," he says of the message behind the tune he penned with respected songwriters Hank Bentley and Mia Fieldes. "I want everything to be pointed back to Him. This song's not about me… It's about embracing the imperfections and knowing there's a God who's perfect, who loves you just the way you are." - @Zach Williams

“This song is just some good old-fashioned group singing! And what I love about that is it is a group of people in harmony together,” Crowder shared on Instagram when the song released in mid-January. “That’s what we need and what I’m praying for, some harmony and togetherness.” - @Crowder

4. We The Kingdom
The rhythmic "God So Loved" encapsulates the beauty of the Gospel message and concludes with the familiar refrain of the traditional "Doxology." Two years in the making, this song has been a labor of love for the family band.
"Each culture, each people group, and each person is so deeply loved by our God," - @We The Kingdom

5. Big Daddy Weave
"When a person realizes the hope that they have in Jesus, and that becomes the greater voice in a person's life, that reveals the purpose that's bigger than the pain," Weaver says of the story behind the song. "It's like when the prophet Jeremiah says in chapter twenty, verse nine, 'What if I decided to stop talking about You?' Jeremiah says that God's Word is in his heart like a fire, a fire shut up in his bones. He can't hold it in." - @Big Daddy Weave

6. Cory Asbury
“I think I wrote eight songs in two weeks,” Asbury recalls. “I couldn’t shut it off. I couldn’t sleep at night, and when I did, I would just be having dreams; and the dreams would be songs and song ideas… It felt like the heavens opened, and all of a sudden, God was speaking. It was awesome.” - @Cory Asbury

7. We Are Messengers
"These are challenging times where we need unity, hope, empathy and love," shares lead vocalist, Darren Mulligan. " 'Image Of God' is a song to unite us, reminding us that every single person is created wonderfully in God's image, and as such are invaluable and fully worthy of our time, respect, love and honor." - @We Are Messengers

8. Kari Jobe & @Cody Carnes
"I have cried so many times as I've watched different people all over the world declaring 'The Blessing' over their families, their churches and their nations," Jobe says of the song's global impact. "God is a God of His Word, and this song is straight from Scripture. I love how He never changes and is always with us and for us. That brings so much peace, especially in a season of disappointment, uncertainty and fear like we have all been walking through this year. 'The Blessing' is truth that we can declare daily over our lives, families and others. So grateful." - @Kari Jobe

9. I AM THEY
