Hello again, readers, and welcome to Framed... The Blog That Likes You.
Here at Framed we are unafraid to take on all types of music, keeping the best interests of our valued readership above even our own likes and dislikes. In that sense, we're sort of like the cigarette-smoking newsmen of World War II who actually won the war, killed Hitler, and gave away half of Europe to the Reds.
But we digress. This week we'll be looking at the popular Christian rock band Casting Crowns, the light rockers out of Georgia who have made a big splash in the highly competitive world of popular religious music. In case you missed it, the Crowns were named "Favorite Artist" in the Contemporary Inspirational category at November's American Music Awards. It was another feather in their crown of thorns, having won a Grammy in 2006 for Best Pop/Contemporary Gospel Album.
In this week's video, "Does Anybody Hear Her" from their Lifesong LP, the Crowns tell the story of a young woman who is lost in today's fast-paced, alcohol-guzzling society, until a goodhearted, churchgoing gal reaches out to her. Christianity: saving the day for over 2,000 years now.
Please enjoy Casting Crowns and Framed, and please feel free to post your comments, which we will read in a respectful and almost reverent manner. God bless you.
Important blog note! Everybody's talkin' Framed, as they should! Over at EVthreads--which is a great site devoted to Evanescence--they've cut-and-pasted our recent Evanescence blog into their own thread. You can see it at http://www.evthreads.com/showthread.php?t=8770
Evidently, the folks at EVthreads do something like Framed themselves, writing captions of their own to various pictures of their faves. They aren't highly-paid professionals and, thus, their captions aren't quite as handsome as ours, but we'd still like to congratulate them all for their efforts. Keep trying, kids, and we'll check back with you from time to time!
