These days everyone is pinching their pennies a little harder. But being careful with your money doesn’t mean that you have to cut back on entertainment like downloading the latest Christian music MP3s. If you know where to look you can easily (and legally) download some of the hottest Christian music to your iPod or other music player – for FREE! Here are some of the best sites for finding free Christian music MP3 downloads:
Great Worship Songs – http://greatworshipsongs.com
If worship music is what you’re looking for then Great Worship Songs is the website for you! Here you’ll find free worship songs available for download by some of today’s biggest Christian music artists like Laura Story, Twila Paris and Gwen Smith. I downloaded all 20 available worship mp3’s on my first visit and bookmarked the site since their selection changes every week. You can also download free lead sheets and chord charts and in some cases, even performance trax to use in your church.
Free CCM – http://freeccm.com
I happened to hear about this website for free Christian music mp3 downloads through a MySpace bulletin that one of my favorite Christian artists, Sara Groves, posted. Each month FreeCCM.com offers a handful of free mp3 downloads from such popular Christian music artists such as Chris Rice, Fee, Bart Millard, Phil Wickam and of course, Sara Groves. Because of my visit to FreeCCM.com I also found out about Phil Wickham’s free live album download that was being given away on his blog! This album is now on constant repeat on my iPod.
Amazon – http://amazon.com
Amazon is still a great place to nab free mp3 downloads and yes, you’ll even find free Christian mp3’s here! They’re currently offering up free Christian music mp3’s by Brandon Heath and VOTA. Christian To keep up with the latest free mp3 downloads, it’s a good idea to either sign up for the Amazon MP3 Facebook group or follow them on Twitter (http://twitter.com/amazonmp3).
MySpace – http://myspace.com
Finally, I suggest putting your MySpace account to good use and adding all your favorite Christian music artists as friends. Be sure to keep an eye on bulletins that are posted, because this is the way that most Christian artists announce news to their fans, including when they have free mp3’s available for download on their websites. Meredith Andrews is currently giving away an acoustic version of her hit single, “You’re Not Alone” and BarlowGirl announced a free download from their latest album not too long ago.
So there you have it! Sometimes you really can get something for free. Enjoy!
