Vote for APX in CCM Magazine's Latest Contest

Here's another chance for you to vote for ApologetiX in a CCM Magazine contest:
I noticed on the CCM website that they are having a contest for the month for people to design their own cover. I ran mine by Karl and then posted it this morning. Here's the link to see it http://www.ccmmagazine.com/entertainment/contests/11546234/11546889/
We encourage ApologetiX fans to vote for Jess' cover or to design your own and let us know about it for next week's newsletter. For 30 years, CCM Magazine has been recognized as the premier publication dealing with contemporary Christian music. As an independent band doing what are perceived as "novelty" songs, it's hard for ApologetiX to get certain people to take us seriously, so any time you vote in a contest like this it helps. Thanks!
Thanks to online voting by our fans, ApologetiX placed in the top three of two separate categories in CCM Magazine's Readers' Choice Awards, published in the January 2007 issue of CCM. Much to our surprise, it wasn't for "best independent band," the award we won in CCM's 2005 awards.
Believe it or not, we came in second in "Artist You'd Like to See on the Cover for the First Time." We were shocked to even be in the running. Even more shocking: we took a back seat to a Backstreet Boy, Brian Littrell, who now does Christian music. ApologetiX also placed third behind Tammy Trent and Brian Littrell (again) as the "Most Underrated Artist."
