Chris Tomlin has set out on the second leg of what’s already been the biggest tour of his career, the “Love Ran Red Tour.” Featuring special guests Rend Collective, the 22-city tour kicked off in Nashville last week. Tomlin will continue to share uplifting music from his hit album Love Ran Red, including title track “At The Cross (Love Ran Red),” which recently hit the No. 1 spot on the National Christian Audience chart.
During his first stop in Nashville, Tomlin played at Ascend Amphitheater where during the middle of his concert, he took questions from the audience. One question came from a 12 year old, Elizabeth Johnson, who asked is she could come on stage and sing with him, and also asked if Tomlin liked Alabama? Tomlin asked if she meant Alabama the band and then proceeded to play his first song he played at a talent show in 4th grade from the band,Alabama. We have the video clip below.
More than 200,000 people attended the first leg of the tour this spring, selling out venues in Chicago, Seattle, Phoenix, Dallas and more. The tour helped raise more than $700K for CURE International, an organization with which Tomlin is partnering for the “Love Ran Red Tour.” For tickets and additional tour information, click here.
Brand new music from Tomlin is resonating with listeners as his recently released single, “Good Good Father,” hit the No. 1 spot on the iTunes Christian Songs Chart the day it released.
In less than two weeks, more than 25 radio stations have added the single, including many large markets across the country and network stations KLOVE, AIR1 and Sirius XM. The single is shooting up the charts, already hitting No. 19 on the National Christian Audience Chart.
“In every record, there’s a song that comes along that I’m just captured by. God is a good Father, and I think people need to hear that more than ever,” Tomlin said. “What a beautiful thing to stand and proclaim and just let people experience the heart and the power of those words – ‘you’re a good good Father.'”
Pat Barrett and Tony Brown wrote “Good Good Father,” and Barrett is featured on the track. “What an honor to carry this song,” Tomlin continued. “It was really important to me that Pat Barrett, who wrote the song, be a part of the recording because he captured the heart so well.”
Tomlin is also nominated for two Dove Awards, one for Songwriter of the Year and Contemporary Christian Artist of the Year.More Music News
