Nashville, TN, February 3, 2015-Top Christian music touring artist Big Daddy Weave announces the launch of the spring leg of their tremendously successful Beautiful Offerings Tour. The 44-city tour, which has already sold out four shows prior to the formal tour announcement, begins February 12 and includes special guest artists Jason Gray, Citizen Way and Lauren Daigle (see tour schedule below/final schedule TBA).

The tour follows one of the band's most successful years on the road and at radio. The Beautiful Offerings Tour premiered in fall 2014 as the launch of a Big Daddy Weave-driven event tour, a la Winter Jam or Rock & Worship Road Show. The Beautiful Offerings format is one of community among the artists and the audience, celebrating that having been redeemed and made beautiful by God, our lives and worship are offerings to Him. To personify this community, Big Daddy Weave performs as musical accompaniment for the tour artists, playing the radio hits in a fast-paced first set. The second set sees all of the artists on stage performing well-known worship music together in union with the audience.

"God has shown up in such a powerful way on these tours," shares Mike Weaver of Big Daddy Weave. "We continue to be blown away by His great love for us and for the people that we get to play for every night. The Beautiful Offerings Tour has been an especially sweet season, performing with artists who are our close friends. We're looking forward to a great collaboration in music and ministry with our friends Jason Gray and Citizen Way and our new friend Lauren Daigle, who is hands down my favorite new voice in Christian music. Her amazing talent is coupled with such a wonderful heart for Jesus. I can't wait to share this evening with people all over the country."

The first leg of the Beautiful Offerings Tour, which took place in the fall of 2014, saw record attendance numbers for the band with multiple sold-out shows. Big Daddy Weave's most recent album release, Love Come to Life has now scored four #1 singles and propelled them to be the second most played artist on Christian AC Monitored stations in 2014. The group recently received a nomination for Worship Song of the Year and the opportunity for fans to vote them to appear on a 7-UP can at the K-LOVE Fan Awards. The nominations were announced just days after returning from a World Vision trip to Cambodia and a performance at the esteemed Brooklyn Tabernacle.

A long-time partner with World Vision, having connected over 13,000 caring fans with children in need through child sponsorship, Big Daddy Weave will continue that trend, incorporating video and stories from their recent trip to Cambodia throughout the tour in an effort to raise awareness of how all can help with the needs of others here and abroad. In the midst of their extensive touring schedule and other ministry commitments, the band will spend the first half of the year readying their first studio album since 2012, slated for Fall 2015.

About Big Daddy Weave
Big Daddy Weave enters 2015 as an indisputable Christian music mainstay, appearing as the second most played artist on Christian radio, a leader in concert touring and the recipient of multiple industry awards. Their most recent and career best-selling album, Love Come to Life, is celebrating its fourth consecutive No. 1 single, "Overwhelmed," which is nominated for Worship Song of the Year at the 2015 K-LOVE Fan Awards. In March 2014, the No. 1 single, "The Only Name (Yours Will Be)" was nominated for K-LOVE Fan Awards' Song of the Year, a title which went to their No. 1 single and career best-selling track, "Redeemed" at the first annual K-LOVE Fan Awards in 2013. The song spent 11 weeks at No. 1, while receiving nominations for Christian Song of the Year at the 2013 Billboard Music Awards and Song of the Year at the 2013 Dove Awards. Spring 2015 finds the band launching the second leg of their tremendously successful Beautiful Offerings Tour, which saw multiple sell-outs around the country during its inaugural run. The band, comprised of Mike Weaver, Jay Weaver, Jeremy Redmon, Joe Shirk and Brian Beihl, formed when the original members were attending the University of Mobile. In 2002, Big Daddy Weave stepped into the spotlight with the release of its second album, One and Only, which debuted in SoundScan's Christian Top 5 and earned them a Dove Award nomination for "New Artist of the Year." In 2010, Big Daddy Weave took home the Dove Award for "Christmas Album of the Year" for its seventh album, Christ Is Come. They have also been honored at ASCAP's Christian Music Awards.

About Jason Gray
Last year saw Jason Gray delivering his strongest album to date with Love Will Have The Final Word. The project became Gray's, and Centricity Music's, highest debuting record by entering the Top Ten on Billboard's Christian Albums Chart. The album also gave Gray his first No. 1 AC radio hit, "With Every Act Of Love." Gray's previous two projects, A Way To See In The Dark and Everything Sad Is Coming Untrue, delivered the talented singer/songwriter five Top Ten singles in a row with "Nothing Is Wasted" becoming his first No. 1 single at radio. Gray has won two ASCAP Performance Awards for "More Like Falling In Love" (2011) and "Good To Be Alive" (2012). He remains active on the touring circuit by appearing on the high-profile The Bible: Son of God 2014 Tour, and sharing the stage with such major artists as Michael W. Smith, Steven Curtis Chapman, Sanctus Real, The Afters, and Andrew Peterson, among many others. Gray also headlined for the first time in 2014 with his With Every Act Of Love Tour last fall, followed by the Christmas Stories Tour in December.

About Citizen Way
Citizen Way is a true band of brothers. This infectious pop/rock four-piece is comprised of two sets of siblings, Josh and Ben Calhoun and David and Ben Blascoe. The group broke through the music scene with their powerful debut single "Should've Been Me," which shot up to the Top 5 on the charts marking it the highest charting debut single from a new artist that was released in 2012. In addition, their highly anticipated debut album, Love is the Evidence, also includes follow-up singles "Nothing Ever (Could Separate Us)" and "How Sweet the Sound" which climbed all the way to #1 on the charts. Citizen Way continues to make an impact both on and off the air, touring with such acts as multi-award winning group Big Daddy Weave, Mercy Me, Chris August, Sanctus Real, Josh Wilson, Sidewalk Prophets and more.

About Lauren Daigle
Lauren Daigle was one of Christian music's 2014 breakout artists with her debut album, How Can It Be, reaching No. 1 on iTunes Christian Albums Chart and named as one of the Top 20 Christian releases last year by the online retail outlet. The title track went Top Ten at Christian radio, No. 1 on iTunes Christian Singles Chart and named by iTunes as one of the Top Christian songs of 2014. At the same time, the lyric and acoustic videos for the song have surpassed 1.5 million views. With powerful vocals that are drawing comparisons of Adele and Amy Winehouse, Daigle has been receiving incredible album reviews with Worship Leader magazine saying, "beautiful album," NewReleaseTuesday.com exclaiming, "fantastic debut," and Breathecast adding, "breath of fresh air." Daigle closed out last year by touring with Aaron Shust in the fall on his Morning Rises Tour and joining Jason Gray and Carrollton for Gray's Christmas Stories Tour in December. Daigle's How Can It Be full album releases April 14, 2015 and will be available for the first time at all retail music stores, while also being listed at all online music outlets.
