Welcome to FamilyMissionCulture.com's Best Christian Artist of all Time Tournament. In keeping with the time honored tradition of college basketball's March Madness, it seemed completely fitting to decide who will be crowned the Best Christian Artist of all Time.
Is this completely arbitrary? Probably. But still fun, nonetheless.
How do we define 'Best Artist'? That, dear readers, is for you to decide. We have selected a bracket of 64 artists, seeded them, and put them into 4 regions (with regional names having no bearing on where the artists are from...it's just random). Artists were selected after hours and hours of scouring fan site rankings, Billboard Top 200 sales charts, relative cultural impact and artistry. We did our best to select artists from 4 separate generations of artists so that it reflects at least a modicum of breadth.
We will follow the format of the actual tournament with two 'rounds' of voting happening each week. You vote on each match-up and we will see who remains after each round.
Will you be happy with the total pool of artists we selected? Of course not. You'll probably be irritated from the get-go with who was left out and how we seeded the tournament. But such is life. :-) But feel free to leave any thoughts in the comment section.
So without any further comment...let the fun (and the voting) commence.
