NASHVILLE, Tenn. (Dec. 7th, 2018) - 3X GRAMMY® Nominated artist Crowder is releasing a new acoustic video for his powerful and emotive song “Ghost” today. Directed by Nate Corrona (DustBrand Films), the video is filmed in black-and-white and offers a stripped down rendition of the track, featuring Crowder and band members, performing the song on stringed instruments. “Ghost” is the closing song on his recently released album I Know A Ghost. View the video, HERE. I Know A Ghost (Capitol Christian Music Group) debuted in the Top 5 on Billboard’s Christian Albums chart and is now available on vinyl ( HERE) and digitally across retailers ( HERE).
 
 
“I think anytime you see us as humans continually scratching at something so intently there is usually a foundational truth there in it somewhere. There is a resonance in every culture throughout all of history, I can’t list all of the haunted/ghost oriented television shows that play on the History or Discovery Channel, the list of movies is endless; we as humans have always told one another ghost stories. There is something innate in us that is searching for the beyond and it is my belief that we are living in a real live ghost story,” said Crowder.
 
“Ghost” was co-written by Crowder and Ed Cash and is one of sixteen tracks across the album. I Know A Ghost displays the versatility, range and diverse musical palette that Crowder is known for and capable of. With an amalgam of influences including bluegrass, country, electronic-synth, gospel and Southern hip-hop, several of the tracks have been featured by press with rave reviews;
 
“...a loud, club-worthy banger doubling as a church anthem — one that worships not only at the foot of the cross, but also at the intersection of funk, dance and R&B.” [‘Wildfire’] - Rolling Stone Country ‘Best Songs Of The Week’
 
“Crowder’s twang-ish voice is front and center and the bayou vibe fits right in with his performance, but the instrumentation is worshipful and contemporary…” [‘Red Letters’] - Relevant Magazine
 
“...a powerful collection of Crowder at his very best…” - CCM Magazine, 5 Stars
 
“The title track is a suitably spooky, yet epic affair, making a great reference to the Holy Spirit as the thing that ‘haunts the believer’s heart.’ [‘I Know A Ghost’]- Jesus Freak Hideout
 
“...an extreme level of intensity, forming what feels like an epic movie score to communicate the wildness and mystery of the Holy Spirit.” - Jesus Wired
 
“...a melting pot of an array of diverse sounds from nu-folk, rock, African native chants, country, EDM, bluegrass and pop...an oasis deep enough (with 16 whooping cuts) to drench your thirst in.” - Hallels
 
Crowder recently celebrated the vinyl release of I Know A Ghost (11/30) with two performances at Opry at the Ryman. Prior to taking the stage, he received a special surprise, when he was presented with the RIAA GOLD-certified plaque celebrating the success of “Come As You Are,” his first-ever #1 radio hit and Gold single of his solo career. For fans in the audience, he performed his widely-embraced song “Red Letters,” which is currently Top 20 on Billboard’s Christian Airplay charts. Featured by Relevant, BREATHECast and The Christian Beat, the music video for “Red Letters” has already garnered 800,000+ views since debuting release week. Crowder shared more about the inspiration for the album and the musical influences with an in-depth interview at the Relevant podcast, listen HERE (40:20).
 
Kicking off in the Spring of 2019, Crowder will join MercyME (of I CAN ONLY IMAGINE fame) on their “Imagine Nation Tour.” For a full list of tour dates and more information, visit http://www.crowdermusic.com.
