Randall Goodgame's amazing Under where? album is strangely absent from the children's music...

Jason Crabb is a unique young man. You can just feel his love for Jesus when he sings. Not only through the words of the songs but the conviction he has when he sings those words are not just words but it is his feelings of his love for Jesus that will truly give you a blessing.


love the Crabb family i to have been to concerts and stayed till everyone was gone love them all.

Isn't there room in the Dove Awards for choral music? What has become of wonderful choral music? ie. John Rutter? Is there no one who worships with this type of music?

I'm delighted that Jason Crabb is being recognized for his work. His talent is God-given, but his choice to use that talent for the Kingdom of God show what he is made of. When he sings, "I'd Rather Have Jesus," he means every word. What a bless(ing this young man is in the lives of so many -- I'm thrilled at his Dove nominations!

Congratulations, Jason! Have known him for many, many years and honored to call him my friend. He is the same genuine, sincere person that he was back then, singing from his heart to the Lord. We are all blessed to be able to witness his amazing talent, and the way God is using him. I wish him nothing but the best, and know God will continue to bless his ministry! Love you, Jason!

Way to go, Jason
