Country music is full of great party songs, but sometimes you want to hear something to lift you up in a way that trucks and beer can't. Some fans might be looking for redemption. Others might just want some consolation.
To answer this call, CMT.com assembled a collection of contemporary Christian acts like the Newsboys, Mandisa, Casting Crowns, the Sidewalk Prophets and more. You can find out about these acts, watch their videos, get news ... and maybe get inspired.
This summer, fans aren't limited to just music to find inspiration. The movie Heaven Is for Real is now available on digital HD and will be coming to Blu-ray combo pack and DVD on Tuesday (July 22).
Based on the best-selling novel, it shares the story of heaven from the perspective of 4-year-old Colton Burpo after a near-death experience. Starring Oscar-nominee Greg Kinnear as Colton's pastor father, the film delivers the retelling of Colton's visions with an innocence and wonder you will want to watch again and again.
