Though the Crist Family recently announced they'd be calling it quits after a long, fruitful term in the Gospel music industry, Rich Crist is transitioning into a new chapter in his music career.
Crossroads Entertainment & Marketing just named Crist the new A&R Associate for Southern Gospel. Rich's main responsibilities will be working with artists on the Sonlite and Horizon labels.
"We are thrilled to have Rich coming on board," says Crossroads executive Chris White. "We have been looking for someone with the talent and knowledge to do this job for a long time. Rich has acquired these attributes from his years he spent with the Crist Family and in his successful business career. We're very excited about the future!"
"Gospel music has become such a big part of my life over the last ten years," Crist adds. "So, it is with great excitement that I accept this position with Crossroads. They have been a family to me, and I am eager to continue to be a part in a new and different capacity. I believe in every artist here and want to invest in their music ministries and careers."
Rich will begin his new job at Crossroads Entertainment on March 3rd. The Crist Family will fulfill previously scheduled performances for the remainder of 2014.
