    They have struggled to become a 'crossover group' without alienating their base.
    For example, pissing off some fundamentalists in the audience by playing 'Sweet Home Alabama' as a dedication to their parents (shoulda stuck with 'Amazing Grace!')
    Dave Carr told CCM Magazine, in a 1999 interview: 'Worship has to come from the heart and be sincere, so we’ve been really wary about jumping on a ‘worship music’ bandwagon... Some of our songs we never thought of in a worship context until we began performing them live and saw people raising their hands and worshipping. It surprises us and makes us realize that what we do is sometimes more worshipful than we know.'
    They self-financed their first album.
    They actually started out as two separate acts, but combined after sharing the stage at a local church event, in 1992.
    They were inducted into the Georgia Music Hall of Fame (Sept. 19, 2009).

    Their music video for 'Consuming Fire' won a Billboard Music Award in the category of Best Christian Video (1996).
    They became the first Christian band to make the cover of Billboard magazine.
    They are credited with revolutionizing the Christian pop genre by appealing to the 'Rock Arena' market segment, in the mid-nineties.
    Their name is an obvious reference to the biblical account of Jesus' rise from the dead on the 'third day' following his crucifixion.
