Connersvine NASHVILLE, TN.... 1/10/08....On the heels of their self-titled debut releasing nationwide in October, and another stellar season of football for the Indianapolis Colt’s, Connersvine, the duo made up of the punter for the Colts’ Hunter Smith, and songwriter Chris Wilson, has officially been added to the Winter Jam 2008 Tour Spectacular line up, kicking off tonight in Johnson City, TN (full list of dates below). The duo will perform one song each evening just before the headline act of MercyMe.

With comments like, “Connersvine busted up my misconceptions in a big way with this creative, delightful debut,” from CMC and Aspiring Retail also saying, “Smith and Chris Wilson, both grounded in years of young adult ministry, deliver a signature stamp of worship for today’s church,” the duo also recently hosted The Gospel Music Channel’s Front Row Live program, and look forward to being a part of Winter Jam this year.
