NASHVILLE, Tenn. (Mon., Dec. 3rd) - 3X GRAMMY® Nominated artist Crowder celebrated the vinyl release of his acclaimed album I Know A Ghost (sixstepsrecords/Capitol Christian Music Group) 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 (HERE) and digitally across retailers (HERE).
 
“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. Featured by Relevant, BREATHECast and The Christian Beat, 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.” With 16 tracks across the album (15 of which Crowder wrote or co-wrote), I Know A Ghost has already been highlighted by Premier Christianity, Worship Leader Magazine and The Christian Beat. Crowder shared more about the inspiration for the album and the musical influences with an in-depth interview at the Relevant podcast, listen HERE (40:20).
 
Kicking off in Spring 2019, Crowder will join MercyMe (of I CAN ONLY IMAGINE fame) on their “Imagine Nation Tour.” For a full list of tour dates and more information, visit http://www.crowdermusic.com/.
