Very few artists have managed to release two albums back-to-back, but Michael W. Smith joined the elite likes of Bruce Springsteen and Guns N’ Roses when he dropped the upbeat pop studio project A Million Lights (buy), followed by the anthem-filled praise and worship collection Surrounded (buy) a mere week apart in February. Scan on for a look at the latter’s entirely live recording session, keep on going for his latest promotional shoot and also revisit MWS’ recent induction into the West Virginia Music Hall Of Fame! —Andy Argyrakis for CCM Magazine
