The photo: Third Day and the studio gang at Southern Tracks Studio in Atlanta, GA.
In 1999, Third Day returned to the studio to record the album Time. Monroe Jones produced the record for the band. After a solid 18 months of touring, we had a ton of song ideas to record. In fact we had over 30 songs to choose from.
With Conspiracy No. 5, we were really setting out to prove something. With Time, we just tried to be ourselves. This was probably the biggest turning point in our carreer. Some of the extra songs from this project are on an ep called Southern Tracks which is sometimes auctioned on ebay.
The album was hailed by critics as a defining work for the band. The song, I've Always Loved you was the band's first no.1 AC song. The song and album made us a lot of new fans. But more than that, it sustained our current fans.
During our concerts, the worship part of our shows was becoming more and more powerful. The band decided to start recording its shows to capture these moments.
Time was nominated for a grammy and received a dove award for rock album of the year.
