Switchfoot's "This Is Home" is Australian (Christian) Song of the Year

I had no idea "This Is Home" was getting so much play in the international music scene, but check this out!:

Australia's national Christian music charts, The Rock Across Australia (TRAA), today announced Switchfoot's This Is Home as 2008 Song of the Year, and honored 24 year old American singer Britt Nicole as the 2008 Artist of the Year.

This is first time Switchfoot and Britt Nicole have earned TRAA honors.

The internationally acclaimed pop-rock quintet spent eight weeks atop TRAA with This Is Home, a song featured on The Chronicles Of Narnia: Prince Caspian Soundtrack, and Switchfoot's The Best Yet compilation.

Best known for its 2003 CD The Beautiful Letdown and singles Meant to Live and Dare You to Move, Switchfoot regards itself as a mainstream act but is included in TRAA because of its parallel distribution in the Christian sector.


Gotta love our Aussie brothers for showing love to Switchfoot (at least, the Christian bros... hehe). No. 1 for eight straight weeks? Impressive!
