Crowder Celebrates Multiple GMA Dove Award Nominations & Announces Tour


Genre-defying artist and multi-instrumentalist Crowder is celebrating multiple GMA Dove Award nominations, announced today. As a leading nominee, Crowder receives nods in categories; Song of the Year ('Red Letters'), Rock/Contemporary Recorded Songs of the Year ('Wildfire'), Pop/Contemporary Album of the Year (I Know A Ghost), and Short Form Video of the Year ('Red Letters'). The 50th Annual Gospel Music Association's Dove Awards will take place on Oct. 15th, and honors outstanding achievements and excellence in Christian and Gospel Music. 

Crowder's Gospel-infused single "Let It Rain (Is There Anybody)" feat. Mandisa is his fastest-rising career single to date and is currently on Billboard's Top 10 Christian Airplay charts. "Let It Rain (Is There Anybody)" feat. Mandisa amassed early momentum, charting weeks ahead of the official radio add date and marked the most adds of Crowder's career. Crowder and Mandisa are featured in the music video for his song, view it (HERE). "Let It Rain (Is There Anybody)" feat. Mandisa is off Crowder's highly-acclaimed album I Know A Ghost (sixstepsrecords/Capitol Christian Music Group). 

I Know A Ghost garnered rave reviews as a collection of songs that seamlessly blend genres. Billboard featured Crowder's musically-elaborate style and unpredictable song craft with an in-depth interview, (HERE). The Guardian called Crowder "...a master of mood and instrumentation..." and Relevant featured the album in their 'Selects,' which highlights the best in music, calling it "...a curious intersection between Pink Floyd and Big Star. It absolutely works." I Know A Ghost includes both GMA Dove Award nominated songs, "Wildfire" and "Red Letters." The highly-lauded "Red Letters" hit the Billboard Top 5 on Christian Airplay charts earlier this year, and marked Crowder's sixth Top 10, since the launch of his solo career. 

Crowder will once again join MercyMe for the fall trek of their nationwide IMAGINE NATION TOUR. The arena tour will kick off in Buffalo, NY on Oct. 3rd with upcoming stops at the iconic Radio City Music Hall in New York on Oct. 8th, and the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, TN on Oct. 27th.

3X Grammy-nominated artist Crowder has sold well over 3 million records as an artist who is "...changing the way people think about Christian music..." (WABE NPR "City Lights"). Known for seamlessly blending genres and captivating a variety of audiences with his musically-elaborate and unpredictable song craft, Crowder's critically-acclaimed album I Know A Ghost, debuted on Billboard's Top 5 Christian Albums chart. His single "Red Letters" marked his sixth Top 10 song on Billboard Christian Airplay charts, and his music has been widely embraced by both Christian and mainstream audiences.

With songs that "...worship not only at the foot of the cross, but also at the intersection of funk, dance and R&B," (Rolling Stone), the genre-defying artist's music video for "Red Letters" was featured in rotation at CMT and he frequently performs at the Grand Ole Opry. I Know A Ghost follows Crowder's previous release American Prodigal, which landed at #1 on Billboard's Christian & Gospel Albums chart and gave rise to his chart-topping #1 smash hit "All My Hope" ft. Tauren Wells. That same album also landed at #12 on Billboard's Top 200 all-genre chart. Crowder's first-ever solo release Neon Steeple debuted at No. 8 on the Billboard 200, was named iTunes 2014 Christian Album of the Year, and garnered multiple radio hits, two GRAMMY® nominations, a Dove Award and multiple nods and numerous K-LOVE Fan Award Nominations.
