OAKLEY, Kansas -- Four-time Grammy award winning, 24 time Dove award winning, Platinum Christian recording artist Third Day is coming to Northwest Kansas. Performing live at the Oakley High School Auditorium January 20th.

Third Day , best known for their chart topping songs, "Cry Out To Jesus", "Revelation", "Call My Name", "Born Again" will be introducing their fans to their New album Miracle which just hit stores this past November. According to Third Day's website, at www.thirdday.com in preparing for their new album Third Day enlisted the help of major recording producer Brendan O'Brien.

Regarding the album and working with Third Day O'Brien said, "They came to me and said, 'We're looking to make music that appeals to our fans and our spiritual side, but we want to break out a little bit and invite everyone in," O'Brien went on to say. "When I hear this music...it's very inviting. It brings people in. It's saying, 'Come along and hear what we have to say.' It really moves me. I really appreciate the hard work these guys have done"

The albums first release "I Need A Miracle" is certainly making a name for the new record becoming Third Day's 28th #1 hit career radio single. According to their website the song, was inspired by a conversation the band had with a couple in New Jersey after a concert. "Their son was in a really depressed place in life. He drove way into the woods and was going to commit suicide," Powell recounts. "But he turned on the radio and he heard 'Cry Out To Jesus.' It literally changed his heart and gave him encouragement to keep going."

KGCR Station Manager James Claassen said, "We are very excited to bring a artist of Third Day's caliber to the Northwest Kansas area. After hearing the story of their inspiring new single and looking back at how God has used their past hit songs, we can't wait to see how He will bless the community with their concert this coming January 20th."
