This experience resulted in further collaboration when he began writing songs about his faith, formed a Christian band called Third Day, and eventually landed a record deal with Gray Dot Records. Powell lives in Atlanta, Georgia, with his wife, Aimee and five children: Scout, Cash, Camie Love, Emmanuel, and Birdie Clare.
