Nashville, TN (December 3, 2018)
Crowder celebrated the vinyl release of his acclaimed album I Know A Ghost with two performances at Opry at the Ryman on Friday night (11/30). Prior to taking the stage, he received a special surprise, when he was presented with the RIAA GOLD-certified plaque celebrating the success of “Come As You Are,” his first-ever #1 radio hit and Gold single of his solo career.
I Know A Ghost debuted in the Top 5 on Billboard’s Christian Albums chart and is now available on vinyl and digitally across retailers.
“It is a real honor to play the Grand Ole Opry— and to be there at the Ryman is a whole different level of something special. You can feel the history still hanging in the air. Can’t imagine a better space to celebrate the vinyl release of I Know A Ghost,” said Crowder.
Crowder performed “Child Of God,” and his widely-embraced song “Red Letters,” which is currently Top 20-and-climbing on Billboard’s Christian Airplay charts. The music video for “Red Letters” has already garnered well over half-a-million views since debuting release week.
I Know A Ghost is an evolution and sonic progression, which blurs genre lines and combines bluegrass, country, electronic-synth, gospel and Southern hip-hop. Rolling Stone Country highlighted “Wildfire” in their Best Songs of the Week, lauding the song as “…a loud, club-worthy banger doubling as a church anthem — one that worships not only at the foot of the cross, but also at the intersection of funk, dance and R&B.”
Kicking off in Spring 2019, Crowder will join MercyMe on their Imagine Nation Tour.
