About Terry Warren:
Sports fans remember Warren as an All-American linebacker with the Florida State University Seminoles, who was signed to play with the NFL’s Dallas Cowboys until he broke his back on the field during training camp, ending his football career. But Warren proved he could make hits off the gridiron as well. His musical credits include landing the lead role of Jean Valjean in “Les Misérables” on Broadway, and his TV and movie credits include performing songs featured on the popular television show “Evening Shade” and movie roles alongside talents such as Burt Reynolds, Eriq La Salle, Michael Chiklis, Neil Patrick Harris and Peter Falk.

Warren, whose Amazing Love CD will hit stores in Summer 2011, is in demand as a singer and speaker in churches and through organizations such as The Fellowship of Christian Athletes, Mercy Ministries and The Jason Foundation. In 2010, Warren founded Crossing the Goal Line Ministries to encourage those who make it almost to the goal line, but are discouraged due to setbacks or tragedy that keep them from getting into the end zone.

Even before the release of his Amazing Love CD, Warren’s new collection of songs is garnering quite a bit of attention. Two of the songs from the album — “God, You’re Beautiful” and “Revelation Song” — have already hit the Number 1 spot on the New Christian Music (NCM) Euro radio chart, and Warren’s rendition of “Revelation Song” was recently featured in a video at the centerpiece of the Tennessee Baptist Convention’s $2.4 million Hearts Awaken for Worship at Camp fund-raising campaign.

Comrades 2020

Becoming Comrades

The trio of Comrades – husband and wife Joe and Laura McElroy alongside drummer John Gaskil – is used to living in a van and touring the country. Now, their new normal has provided them with a moment to "be adults" for once. We recently sat down with the McElroys to talk more about the spiritual reality within life, how soon they'll be able to release new music, and how koalas are their new normal.

Tigerwine 2020

A Disparate Vintage

On Tigerwine's latest, 'Nothing is for You,' vocalist and lyricist Trobee departs from the band's last effort as a concept record to write about an array subjects. Notably, Trobee tackles his evolution from rigid belief system to an acceptance and understanding of other ideas: "Through touring and becoming close with those very people I was taught to be afraid of, I realized how untrue it all is."

Payable on Death – P.O.D.

A Voice of Life

Almost 27 years after the band's first studio album, P.O.D.'s message is arguably more important than ever. "I believe (our message) is even more relevant now than it was then. If you really listen to 'Youth of the Nation,' we still have these tragedies going on. There’s a lot of searching still going on out there."

Here: A quick look back at the magazine's 35-year history with Van Pelt and new owner, David Stagg.
