Third Day have been blazing trails ever since their first album came out on Gray Dot in 1996. (They were the label's first band.) The Atlanta rockers hooked a loyal following with their signature Southern rock and a soulful song style led by Mac Powell's gritty and gratifying vocals. Once they'd leveled off as legends, they dappled in a series of worship sets like every other Christian band at the time, returning to their roots by their sixth album. They've gathered their share of Grammys, Doves, golds, platinums, American Music Awards, and more, all while spending an inordinate amount of time "giving back" through community service organizations around the world.
