As they say all good things must come to an end. That is definitely the case here as The David Crowder Band has certainly delivered some big hits and made some huge contributions to the Christian music community. Although it’s unfortunate they broke up in 2012 they have cemented a legacy as one of the bands that led Christian music toward becoming the fastest growing genre in the music industry today. They will certainly be missed, but at least all members of the band will still be continuing their respective careers and will still be making music that glorifies God.
