We have been listening to TobyMac ever since he was with dc Talk & we have all of his albums including his brand new one THIS IS NOT A TEST that will be released on August 7. I received a digital copy of this latest album to review & I have a CD copy to giveaway. We have been listening to this new album almost nonstop since we got it. We are loving it.
We listen to TobyMac so much that Alaina has no concept of when each of his albums came out because she listens to them all the time. Backseat Driver features Hollyn & TRU and in this song TRU talks about getting behind the wheel because he is 16. Alaina (age 10) started laughing and said how can he be 16 he was just a little kid singing about braiding Marlee's hair.

Toby McKeehan(known professionally as TobyMac) is a husband, father, performer, songwriter, producer, and businessman. Growing up in the northern Virginia suburbs adjacent to Washington D.C. helped instill his love for rap music. While attending Liberty University during the mid 80s, Toby met Michael Tait and Kevin Max Smith and these three friends formed the Grammy winning, platinum selling group dc Talk. Toby began his solo career in 1999 with his first solo album, Momentum, releasing in 2001. Momentum has been followed by four additional studio albums, Welcome to Diverse City (2004), Portable Sounds (2007), Tonight(2010), and Eye On It (2012), along with his first live album, Alive and Transported (2008). This Is Not A Test is his 6th studio album to be released. Starting with dc Talk, and then going solo when the group disbanded, Toby still clings to such rootsy notions as hard work, persistence, patience, and - perhaps most relevant of all - the power of music, which he insists is still what keeps him going. "It's the truth," he says. "I still believe that a song can penetrate a heart. I believe God can use a song to open someone's mind and heart."
THIS IS NOT A TEST will be available on August 7, 2015. If you pre-order on iTunes you will receive 4 song downloads instantly. If you are from the US or Canada you can also enter my giveaway below.
