Nashville, TN (March 22, 2022)
Benny DiChiara, lead singer of chart-topping indie Christian rock band, Empowered, recently attended the National Religious Broadcasters Convention at the Gaylord Opryland Resort & Convention Center in Nashville, Tennessee. DiChiara was in town in support of his band’s breakout EP, Three Days, and their latest music video, the uplifting and emotional “I’ll Meet You There (Daddy’s Song),” which released January 21, 2022.

During the convention, DiChiara met with many media and industry leaders, including nationally syndicated radio show Bill Martinez Live! (airing in 300+ U.S. markets); Angel 95 FM KHCA’s Morning Magazine show; Life Today Live with Randy Robison; God’s Plan Production TV show; The Christian Post‘s online magazine, Crossmap; World Christian Broadcasting; CRU (Campus Crusade for Christ); Gnade Media; The Dad Whisperer Podcast, and many more.
“NRB 2022 in Nashville was a very special event,” says DiChiara. “It was amazing—from the interviews to the meetings, to special encounters with artists who I have looked up to for years like John Schlitt and Skillet lead singer John Cooper. I’m so grateful for the opportunity to speak with so many dedicated Christian media professionals, to share with their audiences what Christ has done for me, and that He can do the same thing for them. To God be the glory!”
The vulnerability and authenticity on the “I’ll Meet You There (Daddy’s Song)” video align with the band’s current EP, Three Days, their first release since DiChiara nearly lost his life to a traumatic brain injury. His journey of healing makes the band’s accomplishments of 2020 and 2021 all the more significant.
Two of the songs on the project, “Listen to the Children” and “Three Days,” have occupied multiple No. 1 chart positions on IndieGospel.net, as has the music video of both songs. In total, the Three Days EP has garnered six No. 1 hits on Indiegospel.net’s Top 20 singles and Top 10 video charts, and over 270,000 Spotify streams to date.
“It’s beyond humbling to see what God has in store for us when we just listen and obey. When He says to move, we should simply move,” DiChiara says.
