Oh for Joy! Win a David Crowder Band CD

This year I used some Swagbucks to add to our Christmas music collection. One of the best additions was Oh for Joy by David Crowder Band.

We’ve been DCB fans for over ten years and saw him in concert a few years ago. His music is energizing and fun. Hip, updated, and a little out of the ordinary. At the same time, he can handle a huge range and does a great job with classic hymns and carols, updating them without making them unrecognizable. Unlike some.

I’m very pleased to have added Oh for Joy to our holiday playlist. You can listen to samples here.
