2007 CCM Concert Forecast

According to Wendy Morrone of McTrendz Research, things will get busy for concert-goers next year. With more than 90 percent of Americans claiming to hold spiritual beliefs, many secular bands are now focusing on the “religious” demographic. And because secular groups get the prime gigs, Christian bands will look to increase their piece of the action, er, evangelistic opportunities.

  • Amy Grant Funk Railroad
