Without a whole lot of fanfare, South Carolina’s NEEDTOBREATHE is probably the first band since Switchfoot to fully cross over from contemporary Christian music into the mainstream; beyond even that, they’ve become one of the biggest rock groups of the 21st century, period. Since their debut, 2006’s Daylight, the group steered by brothers Bear and Bryant Rinehart — yes, they’re named after the legendary late Crimson Tide football coach — have watched the audience for their acoustic-driven anthems and unapologetically positive messages swell, winning accolades aplenty (three Dove Awards for 2009’s The Outsiders, for example) and courting secular fans by touring with the likes of Collective Soul and even Taylor Swift. Released this past April, fifth studio LP Rivers in the Wasteland became NEEDTOBREATHE’s second album in a row to top Billboard’s Rock Albums chart, and reached as high as No. 3 on the Billboard 200.
