(NASHVILLE, Tenn.) Nov. 19, 2013-Multi-Dove Award nominated Curb recording artist No Other Name will reprise its successful annual mission trip in 2014, inviting fans to join "Mission: Nashville" for a third consecutive year. The event, centered around Nashville's international community, will involve local construction projects, prayer and relationship-building activities.

Its 2013 mission trip was No Other Name's most well-attended to date, gathering 100 participants who were divided into three teams. "Team Sam" spent the afternoon at a low-to-moderate income housing co-op where many refugees reside, working various construction tasks, while "Team Chad" was tapped for outreach opportunities at several kids' clubs comprising children of diverse nationalities. "Team Laura" initiated a prayer walk through different international sites in Nashville for the people who live and work there. Laura's group also hosted a block party for the children at the housing community with food, games, and fellowship.

"We were blown away by the turnout for last year's 'Mission: Nashville,'" says Laura. "It just seemed right to do it again this year. We look forward to working in our own city once again, bringing the light of Jesus to many internationals who've never heard His name."

For the last five years, No Other Name has sponsored an annual mission trip, inviting fans to participate in outreach areas like Managua, Nicaragua, and Sao Paulo, Brazil. The last two years, the group chose Nashville as its mission field, given the city's diverse international population with hundreds of people groups, spoken languages and cultures.

The 2014 trip will take place June 27-29 and much like last year's mission focus on three main ministry areas: construction at a local housing co-op for widows, missionaries, and refugees; prayer for different international sites within Nashville and for the people who live and work in those areas; and building relationships as well as sharing faith with internationals.

About No Other Name
Signed to Curb Records in 2008, No Other Name comprises brother-sister duo, Sam and Laura Allen, along with their friend Chad Smith. The group formed when the three attended a summer music conference at Nashville's Belmont University.

In 2011, No Other Name was recognized by industry and fans with a GMA Dove Award nomination for New Artist of the Year before releasing its first record. Later that year, the group made its national debut with The Other Side on Oct. 25, 2011.

The Other Side was a hit out of the gate, with Worship Leader magazine calling it "a must-have CD" and describing the project as a "spiritual call to arms." Additionally, The Alabama Baptist touted, "[i]f you buy only one CD this year, consider this one," while CCM Magazine declared "...No Other Name is a moniker poised to be on the tip of everyone's tongue." The project's title track was nominated for a 2013 GMA Dove Award for Inspirational Song of the Year, No Other Name's second career nomination.

No Other Name is a strong proponent of missions and partners with the Southern Baptist Convention's International Mission Board to help recruit missionaries while joining the organization on trips to Nicaragua as well as Brazil. Most recently, the Southern Baptist Convention adopted No Other Name's song "Let It Start With Me" as its missions theme song. The track was used in conjunction with a music video for "Let It Start With Me," created by the IMB and distributed to more than 40,000 Southern Baptist Convention churches, as a missions recruitment tool.
