TobyMac “This is Not a Test” – Out Now!
I am a new TobyMac fan.
Seriously, I have heard of them, but never listened to them. I have to tell you.
I am in LOVE!
Where have I been?
I seriously am really liking this This is Not a Test from TobyMac. I have it downloaded on my phone and I am so impressed! It kinda of reminds me of old-school music. So, far, my one favorite song on this album that I keep finding myself listening to is,
Backstreet Driver… wow, it really brings me to thinking. I don’t want to be a backseat driver, and yet, it seems like I always am. Not enough Faith, not enough Trusting in Him! He is the driver, yet I try so hard to run the show.
That is why I do the driving in the family ya’ll. I hate it when others drive. I don’t trust no one to keep my family safe. It is one of the few things I can sorta control.
Not you know my secret.
This is Not a Test is the perfect album to cut my teeth on since I have never heard TobyMac before.
I am so glad that I now have this on my player. I love the messages in each of the tracks.

Toby McKeehan(known professionally as TobyMac) is a husband, father, performer, songwriter, producer, and businessman. Growing up in the northern Virginia suburbs adjacent to Washington D.C. helped instill his love for rap music. While attending Liberty University during the mid 80s, Toby met Michael Tait and Kevin Max Smith and these three friends formed the Grammy winning, platinum selling group dc Talk. Toby began his solo career in 1999 with his first solo album, Momentum, releasing in 2001. Momentum has been followed by four additional studio albums, Welcome to Diverse City (2004), Portable Sounds (2007), Tonight(2010), and Eye On It (2012), along with his first live album, Alive and Transported (2008). This Is Not A Test is his 6th studio album to be released. Starting with dc Talk, and then going solo when the group disbanded, Toby still clings to such rootsy notions as hard work, persistence, patience, and – perhaps most relevant of all – the power of music, which he insists is still what keeps him going. “It’s the truth,” he says. “I still believe that a song can penetrate a heart. I believe God can use a song to open someone’s mind and heart.”
