Recently named by Worship Leader Magazine as one of the Top 5 Indie Releases in 2010-2011, The Classic City Collective’s debut album, “Leave Your Guns with the Usher” delivers on the innovation, intrigue and power alluded to in the album title. Based out of Classic City Community Church in Athens, GA, they are redefining congregational worship music in a church ministering to one of the most competent music cities in the country. They brazenly counter the conventional wisdom that congregational music must be simplified and predictable. Their debut album, “Leave Your Guns with the Usher” is a tour de force – big and powerful yet delicate, complicated and beautiful.
“Leave Your Guns with the Usher, by The Classic City Collective, is a gem of an album. Just read that title one more time. And yes they follow-through with the promise that you are going to get something unique….with the unique style, come lyrics that are profoundly deep and moving. It is quite a combination, one that entices listeners to come back to the album over and over again.”

“I love these guys in all their dissonance and diversity and will be a fan for a good long time. They are consummate musicians and inspiring worshippers. Okay, I'm done... but seriously, do yourself a favor and go grab a copy!”
-Worship Musician! Magazine
“The band lives up to their claim to be “redefining congregational worship music” by offering listeners of Contemporary Christian Rock a cool alternative.”
