Nashville, TN – Fervent Records' Chris August is one of the hottest rising newcomers on the Christian Music scene, fitting for this singer/songwriter of the last name “August.” And there is no cooling off in sight as August heads to Indianapolis, IN to co-host K-LOVE’s highly rated morning show, “Mornings with Lisa and Eric.” August will guest co-host Wednesday, October 27 with Eric to fill in for Lisa while she is on vacation. K-LOVE is the largest Christian radio network and the morning show is heard nationwide on all of the network’s affiliate stations. August’s segment will air from 7:00-11:00 AM (EST).

“K-LOVE has been such a great source of positive, encouraging music over the years and I am thrilled to have this opportunity to co-host with Eric tomorrow,” said August.

Chris August is Christian Music’s rising star with his polished pop/rock sound and inspirational lyrics. The singer/songwriter has already started quite a buzz with his debut single, “Starry Night” hitting No. 1 on Billboard’s Christian/AC Chart and the successful release of his debut album No Far Away proving to be one of the highest selling new artist releases this year in the genre. This self-taught pianist, guitarist, and producer previously toured as the keyboard player and opening act for pop sensation Ashlee Simpson before shifting his focus to his solo career. August, a native of Dallas, Texas, put his refined skill set to work when he co-produced his debut record with acclaimed producer Ed Cash.
