Who is Maverick City Music?  — Maverick City Music is an American contemporary worship music collective founded by Tony Brown and Jonathan Jay, originating from Atlanta. The name “Maverick City Music” carries a rich and intentional meaning, reflecting the group's vision and purpose.

Breaking Boundaries and Creating Space

Maverick City Music started with a dream to make space for folk that would otherwise live in their own separate worlds. They boldly break the unspoken rules that exist in the Contemporary Christian Music (CCM) and Gospel World. Their mission is to create a musical haven where diversity thrives, where voices often marginalized—such as black artists and women who identify as CCM singers and songwriters—find a place to shine. In doing so, Maverick City Music challenges conventions and invites everyone to the table.

The Maverick Spirit

The term “maverick” has a colorful history. Originally, it referred to unbranded cattle—those that roamed freely without conforming to the herd. Over time, it evolved to describe independent thinkers, risk-takers, and those who defy norms. In popular culture, movies like Maverick and Top Gun immortalized the term, portraying characters who danced to their own rhythm.

Maverick City Music embodies this spirit. They refuse to be confined by genre boundaries or predictable formulas. Instead, they create soul-stirring worship that transcends labels. Their music is a fusion of authenticity, vulnerability, and raw passion—a celebration of the untamed heart seeking connection with the Divine.

Songs That Resonate

From their debut extended plays to collaborative albums, their music has touched hearts with tracks like “Jireh,” “Man of Your Word,” and “Promises.” Each song carries the essence of a maverick—an invitation to encounter God beyond the ordinary, to find hope in unexpected places.

Conclusion

So, when you hear the name “Maverick City Music,” remember that it’s more than a label—it’s an anthem. It’s a call to embrace the wild, the unconventional, and the beautifully diverse. It’s a reminder that worship knows no boundaries, and the Creator delights in our unique expressions.

    The End of an Era: Redbox Shuts Down All Kiosks — In a move that marks the end of an era, Redbox, the iconic DVD rental service, is shutting down all of its kiosks. This decision comes as part of a Chapter 7 bankruptcy liquidation by its parent company, Chicken Soup for the Soul Entertainment¹². For over two decades, Redbox has been a familiar sight at grocery stores, convenience stores, and Walmarts across the United States, offering a convenient way to rent movies and games. However, the rise of digital streaming services has significantly impacted the demand for physical media, leading to this unfortunate outcome. #Redbox
