Derek Webb Nashville, Nov. 5 – Derek Webb, the Nashville-based musician who both on his own and with his previous band Caedmon’s Call has sold in excess of one million records, will lend his effervescent single “Name” to the Nov. 8 episode of ABC’s television show Grey’s Anatomy.

Webb, who is currently on tour supporting The Ringing Bell (INO/Columbia Records), has won widespread praise for the new album with Paste Magazine awarding the album 5 stars and pegging the release as one of the year’s best. USA Today said of the single “Name”: “a Beatlesque cut from The Ringing Bell finds the Christian pop maverick lending a sharper rock edge to his blend of compassion and witty skepticism.”

Up next for Webb is a performance and interview on XM Satellite Radio Loft “Sessions,” which will air the week of Dec. 3 and comes on the heels of a successful run for “Name” at AAA radio and inclusion of the single on American Airlines in flight channel, “PASTE Beat.” The past twelve months have been the best of Webb’s career and included the bold move of being the first notable artist to offer an entire album free to fans with the “” campaign which asked for fans to simply sign up for his mailing list in exchange for a free download of his previous album, Mockingbird, which garnered Webb over 80,000 digital downloads of the 2006 release.

Current tour dates are:
6 Asheville, NC The Grey Eagle
7 Charlotte, NC Neighborhood Theatre
8 Raleigh, NC The Lincoln Theatre
9 Richmond, VA Pace Student Center/VA Commonwealth University
10 Greenville, SC The Handlebar
11 Knoxville, TN Patrick Sullivan’s
16 Decatur, GA Eddie’s Attic
18 Nashville, TN 3rd & Lindsley
5 W. Palm Beach, FL Palm Beach Atlantic University
6 Jacksonville, FL Murray Hill Theatre
7 Lexington, SC The Watershed
