Colton Dixon
Colton Dixon turns personal truths, stories, and experiences into universal anthems. As if projecting a diary on the big screen, he candidly shares his journey, life, and faith aloud in his music, opening up a conversation over a soundtrack of stadium-size pop with just the right amount of rock bombast. Amplifying his introspective songwriting through powerhouse delivery, he’s quietly asserted himself as a vital voice beloved by fans worldwide. Tallying streams in the hundreds of millions, selling out shows, and appearing on major television programs, he captivates once again on his 2023 EP, Canvas [Atlantic Records]. Colton emerged as a phenomenon after finishing in the top seven on Season 11 of Fox’s American Idol. He delivered a series of fan favorite albums. Landing in the history books, 2013’s A Messenger achieved “the biggest first-week sales by a new solo Christian act” and catapulted into the Top 15 of the Billboard 200 and #1 on the Billboard Christian Albums Chart, not to mention, joining the iconic company of Harry Connick, Jr. and Billy Joel as a Steinway & Sons artist. A year later, Anchor yielded his third and fourth #1 hits on Christian Hot AC with “More of You” and “Through It All.” In 2017, he returned to #1 on the Christian Albums Chart for the third time. Thus far, he has collected a pair of Dove Awards in the categories of “Rock/Contemporary Album” and “Recorded Music Packaging. Following an invite from the White House, he shined at the 2019 National Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony. Plus, he’s performed on Good Morning America, Entertainment Tonight and in the pages of People magazine. During 2022, he made his show-stopping debut at the Grand Ole Opry during 2022, receiving multiple standing ovations.
Mac Powell
Mac Powell, originally from Alabama, moved to Atlanta, GA as a sophomore in high school where he would soon co-found the Christian rock band Third Day. Throughout their nearly three-decade career, the band sold over 10 million albums, earned four Grammy Awards, one American Music Award, 24 Dove Awards, and was inducted into the Georgia Music Hall of Fame. Since Third Day’s farewell tour in 2018 Mac released his debut solo Christian album “New Creation” on October 15th, 2021 which landed at NO.1 on the Top Christian & Gospel album chart. River of Life, the debut single from “New Creation” became a Top 10 hit at Christian radio followed by the multi-week title track, New Creation, which spent 7 weeks at NO. 2 and 19 weeks inside the top 10. Mac is on staff at Church of the Apostles in Atlanta, GA where he lives with his wife Aimee and children.
