(NASHVILLE, Tenn.) September 26, 2012 - Highlands Worship landed at #1 on the Christian Music Trade Association's (CMTA) Praise and Worship chart and #3 on Billboard's Top Current Contemporary Christian chart this week with their debut CD, Place of Freedom. The CD is released by in:ciite media and distributed by EMI CMG Distribution.

"Being a worship pastor at Church of the Highlands is an honor and blessing," said John Larson, Worship Pastor and one of the many voices you'll hear on Place of Freedom. "There is nothing more powerful and beautiful than the Church worshipping Jesus."

With their debut release, Highlands Worship delivers pure, uninhibited live worship captured on Place of Freedom, which will resonate with churches around the nation. Place of Freedom includes 12 new worship songs written and led by worship leaders and songwriters at the ever-growing Church of the Highlands in Birmingham, Ala.

The worship music community is buzzing over this new contribution of songs and worship leaders from Highlands Worship:

"The Highlands Worship team is poised to be an emerging voice in worship. Grounded in an awesome healthy church where God is doing great things, the worship coming out of them is an expression of what God is doing in and through their congregation. This album captures an incredible night of worship as all the voices of the congregation joined together with one spirit and one voice." - Thomas Miller, worship pastor at Gateway Church, Plano, Texas

"Whenever you find a church like Church of The Highlands with strong pastoral leadership and great teaching, you will find vibrant, life-giving worship, expressed through great songs of praise. I was truly blessed to be part of this great night of worship!" - Don Moen, world renowned worship leader and songwriter

"With captivating music that is engaging and far from stagnant while properly focusing clear and congregational focused lyrics on top, this offering is a goldmine for worship leader's seeking new and relevant music for their modern congregations. From the rocking charge of "We Are" which boasts of our mission to be the hands and feet of Christ's body to anthems of acclamation like "Our God Reigns," Highlands Worship delivers a Hillsong UNITED-esque feel while maintaining a vibe and lyrics that are fresh and new." - Worship Leader Magazine
