Third Day frontman Mac Powell talks about 'Glory Revealed'

LEAD singer with best selling rock band Third Day, Mac Powell spoke this week to US trade magazine Billboard about the multi-artist project 'Glory Revealed: The Word Of God In Worship' on which he worked with evangelist David Nasser with contributions from Michael W Smith, Shane & Shane and Brian Littrell among others. Said Powell, "First, we got a majority of the lyrics from Scripture. Musically, it's a lot different than anything I've ever worked on. It's an acoustic, very organic record, almost bluegrassy in a sense. It uses a lot of fiddle, banjo and acoustic guitars. It was great as a musician to be able to step out of the comfort zone of a rock band and to do something different musically. We thought it would be so great to go on a tour. We called up some of the artists who sang on the album and said, 'What do you think about April?' They agreed. So, as of April 9, we'll be on the road." CR
