“This song floors me every time I sing it,” says Crowder. He adds, “It convicts me and it lifts me. I mean, to hear a group of people singing it, well, it’s church. If there were ever a time we needed the church to be singing together about hope that transcends and unifies, this is that time.”
Crowder recently announced his 20-city “American Prodigal Fall Tour” with guest Jimi Cravity, and introducing The Young Escape, which will begin on October 24. The tour will feature live performances from Crowder’s chart-topping album, AMERICAN PRODIGAL, which debuted at #5 on Billboard’s Top Albums chart, #12 on Billboard’s Top 200 chart, #3 on the Digital Albums chart, and #1 on the Christian & Gospel Album chart. Its lead single, “Run Devil Run,” was picked up by NBC’s “Sunday Night Football,” and hit #6 on the Christian Digital Songs chart. AMERICAN PRODIGAL also scored Top 10 radio hits with the K-LOVE Fan Award nominated “My Victory” and “Forgiven.”
Over the past two decades, David Crowder has transcended the usual boundaries associated with gospel music with lyrically powerful, musically intricate and unpredictable songs that have been sung and played everywhere from churches, to mainstream clubs across the country. Since the 2012 conclusion of his eight-time GMA Dove Award winning and GRAMMY® nominated David Crowder Band, the ever-evolving singer-songwriter has been on a fresh creative, critical and commercial roll, recording two hit crossover albums and a batch of hit singles as a solo artist.
