Country Music with a Jesus Kick
In the past few years, MARK209, the Nashville-based band has established an impressive faithful fan base from coast to coast. Audiences respond to the four-part harmony associated with Gospel music, yet MARK209’s sound has a strong country influence. Fans relate to their message which reflects the life that many live leading to an understandable communication between audience and singers. Perhaps MARK209’s casual appearance, friendly rapport with fans and wide-range of Christian country songs have earned them followers from four generations: a four-year-old sings the lyrics with them; a teenager creates fashions using the MARK209 logo; young parents eager to introduce their children to Christian music and the older folks who find themselves responding like “groupies” as they did in their teen years.
Traveling in their signature “Yellow Bus”, MARK209 has performed from The Crystal Palace in Bakersfield, CA across the country to Kennebunkport, ME where they sang for the Bush family at Walker’s Point three times prior to the passing of President George HW and Barbara Bush. Stops between have included the Main Stage at Graceland in Memphis, TN, Harmony at the Gulf in AL, the Main Stage at the NC Apple Festival, the Owasso Gospel Opry in OK, the Arlington Music Hall in TX, the Wheeling Jamboree in WV, and Dollywood in TN. When not touring, the band makes television appearances and gives radio interviews and have produced several music videos. MARK209’s “Christmas from the Heart of Nashville” concert plays to sold-out venues throughout the country. Recognition from their loyal fans has recently come in the form of two Diamond Awards for the Christian Country Group of the Year and The Christian Music Fan Award for Favorite Group, as well as a Number 1 song on the Christian Country Music Chart.
