NASHVILLE, TENN. (July 16, 2014) This week 19 Recordings' Dove Award-winning artist and Season 11 American Idol finalist, COLTON DIXON premiered his new music video for his single "More of You." This single is from his forthcoming August 19th sophomore album Anchor (19/Capitol CMG). In addition to the music video debut, fans can now pre-order the album digitally at iTunes here: smarturl.it/Anchor

For his sophomore effort, he co-wrote with renowned songwriters and artists such as Trevor McNevan (TFK), Matthew West, TobyMac, Ben Glover, Matt Bronleewe and the album's producers. Anchor was recorded in Nashville's Berry Hill neighborhood, a creative hub dotted with recording studios, and produced by David Garcia (TobyMac, Mandisa, Newsboys) and Red Decibel (Switchfoot, Kelly Clarkson, Jeremy Camp). On it, Dixon explores not just new topics, but new sonic territory as well.

Anchor follows Dixon's 2013 debut, A Messenger, which set the record for biggest first-week sales by a new solo Christian act, becoming the No. 1 selling album of 2013 by a new Christian artist and the No. 9 best selling album of 2013 in the Christian genre overall. A Messenger also became the No. 22 best-selling album across all genres that same year, while Dixon was still reeling from his highly publicized seventh place finish on Season 11 of American Idol.

Awards and accolades followed. Dixon received three Dove Award nominations, winning for Best Contemporary/Rock Album, and he was nominated for Male Artist of the Year at the 2014 KLOVE Fan Awards. Colton also racked up two No. 1 radio singles in 2013 and toured with Third Day, TobyMac and Josh Wilson. And he was recently named an Official Steinway Artist by the legendary piano maker.
