Hey everyone,
I was just wondering if anyone knew of any Christian bands that have a Southern rock sound? I really love Skynyrd, the Outlaws, etc., but as you all know, the messages in those songs aren't always the best. So if anyone could tell me of any " Southern Christian Rock " bands, that would be greatly appreciated.

Have you heard Three Crosses? They have a Southern sound very similar to Georgia Satellites.

Very hard to find... but it would be worth your while to look up "Vision" by the band of the same name. The keyboards are by Skynyrd's Billy Powell. It was released by Heartland Records in 1985. It was never released as a cd. I found a high quality vinyl to digital transfer from (I think) Gemm a few years ago.

Have you heard Bill Mallonee & the Vigilantes of Love? They came out of the Athens, GA, scene. Their sound evolved over the years and ranged a bit from punk folk to alternative rock to alt-country. I wonder if "Blister Soul" or "Welcome to Struggleville" might work for you.

DecembeRadio falls into that frequently, also Needtobreathe has a few songs that kind of slide that way.

First, I want to apologize for the responses in this thread. A lot of them are horrible...
The answer to your question is the band, "Big Fat Jam." The broke up in 2003, but put out two great CD's - an independant album, and "Welcome to Wonderland" which was released on Absolute Records. Their sound is a mix of many artists such as Skynard, Led Zepplin, The Black Crowes, etc. I promise you'll love their stuff.

Not released on CD but you might be able to find a transfer of the 2 LPs from Ed Raetzloff who was in the mainstream Southern rock band Blue Jug before coming to Christ and recording the same style with a gospel slant. 2 albums are DRIVIN' WHEELS and IT TOOK A LONG TIME TO GET TO YOU.

I'll also second the other mention of the band VISION.

And yes, it's extremely irritating how quickly Christian rock goes out of print but that's a rant for another day. :)

Needtobreathe from Walhalla, SC. Can't get more Southern than that. "Washed By The Water" is one the best Southern rock songs ever!!! The CD is titled "The Heat". You won't be disappointed.......

Glenn Kaiser (the Glenn Kaiser Band) and Darrell Mansfield do some great blues - about as close as you're gonna get in the Christian arena

I've been looking for the same thing and, believe me, the search continues :) However, I've found a few songs that remind me of The Band or The Black Crowes including some from Caedmon's Call (Trouble & Share in the Blame)and Decemberradio (Find You Waiting & Drifter). Unfortunately neither group has a really consistent "southern rock" sound across any particular album. Hope this helps!

don't forget Larry Howard from Grinderswitch ,an overlooked southern rock band on capricorn records. Also Q-stone ,but their stuff is hard to find. Agreed wholehearted Glenn Kaiser Band is THE closest . Start with Spontaneous Combustion or Ripley County Blues.TRy the Mighty Jeremiahs w/jimmy hall from wet willie and greg martin from ky headhunters,then onto Taildragger.........

Hey, I think I have what your looking for, go to indieheaven. You can look up all these Christian artists by genre and preview before buying. These are Independent artists and so you don't always hear them on the radio. Some are awesome! Some are terrible. There are some you might really enjoy. One is 9th hour. Excelent sound. also, you might look for thirsty child. 9th hour, however has a distinctly Christian message. Another band you might like, but not on indieheaven is called 2nd chapter of acts, or perhaps it is matthew ward, and the song is yahweh. or till the walls fall down, you will love those two songs, you could also try the mighty jerimiahs. Any of those will fill your need for Christian southern rock. God Bless!
