Connersvine NOVEMBER 2, 2007 – Hunter Smith, punter for the NFL’s Indianapolis Colts, and band mate Chris Wilson bring their Christian music duo Connersvine to the Gospel Music Channel cable television network this weekend, before the huge Colts – New England Patriots showdown on Sunday.

The band’s live concert performance on the GMC original series Front Row Live will be seen this Friday, Nov. 2 at 7:30 p.m. and Saturday, Nov. 3 at 10:30 p.m. (all times Eastern; Check for more information.)

In Front Row Live: Connersvine, the duo will be performing music from their just-released, self-titled debut album in a live concert recorded in May under the nose of the AFC South rivals Tennessee Titans in Nashville, TN.

Smith graduated from Notre Dame and went on to be drafted by the NFL Colts as their punter in addition to be the holder for field goals. He has just begun his ninth season with Indianapolis. Raised with a great appreciation for music, Wilson began playing guitar at the age of ten and was helping on the worship team at his local church by the time he was in middle school. Smith and Wilson met in the summer of 2001, beginning their friendship by leading worship together for a young adult ministry on the south side of Indianapolis. They created Connersvine, which has an acoustic-driven rock sound that communicates through worshipful melodies and passionate vocals.

Front Row Live is GMC’s original series featuring powerhouse artists hosting their own concert performances while sharing their musical inspirations in front of specially-invited audiences. Featured artists have included Kirk Franklin, Third Day, Michael W. Smith, The Clark Sisters and Natalie Grant.
