Rush Of Fools (NASHVILLE, Tenn.) April 30, 2008 –ASCAP recently awarded Kevin Huguley and Wes Willis from Rush Of Fools, along with Scott Davis, the Song Of The Year Award for "Undo" during the 30th Annual Christian Awards Dinner held in Nashville, Tenn. on April 22, 2008.

The recent award accolade builds on the group’s astounding musical achievements since its debut self-titled 2007 CD release which exploded at radio producing the Radio and Records 2007 Song of the Year with “Undo.” The record was also the 2nd best selling new artist release of the year. With unprecedented radio success, multiple Dove Award nominations, exclusive partnerships and national tour ventures, Rush of Fools has become one of Christian music’s hottest new bands.

In addition to the ASCAP nod, Rush Of Fools continues its #1 radio momentum on the CRW Inspirational chart this week as “Peace Be Still” holds the top spot for three consecutive weeks. With unprecedented success as one of Christian music’s top newcomers and a rapidly growing list of chart-topping singles, Rush Of Fools continues to maintain its solid position on Christian radio, as one of its top played artists.

With a compelling artistry that embodies progressive worship, Rush Of Fools' evocative and engaging message of restoration and forgiveness has resonated deeply with today's passionate generation. The combination of relevant lyrics and distinct sound has contributed to the band’s growing fan base.

Following on the heels of its amazing debut year success, the band is currently in the studio preparing for its highly-anticipated sophomore project, Wonder Of The World which is slated to release nationwide September 16, 2008. Produced by Scott Davis, Jason Ingram and Rusty Varenkamp, the sophomore effort is much like their debut release, filled with passionate lyrics and contemporary, hooky melodies. To support the upcoming album, Rush Of Fools will continue its aggressive national touring this fall with Big Daddy Weave (cities and dates to be announced at a later date).

Rush Of Fools continues the Newsboys “GO” tour this month with multiple stops across the country. In addition, the band has been announced as part of the lineup for the 26th annual Night of Joy at Walt Disney World, coming this year to Disney's Hollywood Studios. One of the top Christian music festival events in the country, 2008’s Night of Joy will take place Sept. 5-6, 2008 as Rush Of Fools joins stellar Contemporary Christian Music performers, including Casting Crowns, MercyMe, Chris Tomlin, tobyMac, Rebecca St. James, Aaron Shust and Fred Hammond, among others.

Rush Of Fools consists of Wes Willis (lead vocals, acoustic guitar), Kevin Huguley (vocals, keys, electric guitar), Jacob Chesnut (bass, vocals), Jamie Sharpe (drums) and JD Frazier (electric and acoustic guitar, keys, vocals).
