Hawk Nelson, Run Kid Run, Mark Stuart and Will McGinniss of Audio Adrenaline, and the Veggie Tales will be featured Sunday during the Faith Nights Baseball tour 2008 Sunday at Joe Davis Stadium.

Since 2004, the pop-rock band Hawk Nelson has sold a half-million albums, appeared on TV and in movies and had one of their songs, "Bring 'Em Out," on NBC's NFL Sunday Night Football campaign. Hawk Nelson has also toured with tobyMac and MxPx and at the Women of Faith's Revolve events for girls and had Christian radio hits like "The Show," "Take Me," "California," "Letters to the President" and "Everything You Ever Wanted." The group's most recent release is called "Hawk Nelson Is My Friend."

Run Kid Run is a rising pop/rock band that released its debut, "This is Who We Are," in 2006. It has charted two radio hits, "We've Only Just Begun" and "Sing to Me," gained exposure in American Eagle stores and on daytime television, and has led fans to sample the band's songs nearly 1 million times at MySpace.

Early on, AbsolutePunk.net hailed Run Kid Run as a "next big thing" and described its first disc as "insanely catchy" and a "refreshing mixture of melody, cheer, and energy." Each member of the group has drawn inspiration from the young alternative bands signed to Tooth & Nail Records. Neil Endicott, David Josiah Curtis and Matt Jackson first signed to that label as Side Walk Slam. Paul Stewart joined later having played with independent act Slingshot57. Their current moniker comes from a song title by yet another group.

After two Grammys, multiple Dove awards, and 18 No. 1 singles with the legendary Audio Adrenaline, Stuart and McGinniss have started again. McGinniss admits it was bittersweet to see AA come to an end, but they are excited to see what God has next. The guys have turned their attention away from the rock show and focused on sharing their passion for Christ as speakers.
