NASHVILLE, TN - (November 21, 2011) - Multi-talented and reigning Dove Award "Artist of the Year" and "Male Vocalist of the Year," Chris August is adding holiday cheer to his hit debut album, No Far Away. Beginning today, November 21, a special Christmas edition of the Dove Award winning album will be available for purchase at all digital retailers. The album will include two new, original Christmas tracks, "Come Now Our King" and "Jesus, Savior," both penned by August.

Fervent Records' Chris August is quickly becoming a favorite in the CCM genre. With an impressive sweep at the 42nd Annual Dove Awards, he earned awards for "New Artist of the Year" and "Male Vocalist of the Year," adding him to an elite group of only three artists in the history of the show who have received both awards. He also claimed the nod for "Pop/Contemporary Album of the Year" for his debut album No Far Away that he co-produced with acclaimed producer Ed Cash. The album delivered August's debut single "Starry Night," which hit No. 1 on Billboard's Christian/AC chart in September and stayed put for six weeks as well as the hit follow-up single "7x70," launching this self-taught pianist, guitarist, and producer as an artist in his own right. Featuring a resonant collection of soulful pop-rock sing-alongs, touching balladry, and heart-on-sleeve lyricism, No Far Away has become the best-selling New Artist project released in 2010. A native of Dallas, TX, August previously toured as the keyboard player and opening act for pop sensation Ashlee Simpson and worked with Ryan Cabrera, Brian McKnight, and Jessica Simpson before shifting his focus to a solo career.
