NASHVILLE, Tenn. (September 4, 2020) – Award-winning and current GMA Dove-award winners, Keith and Kristyn Getty of Getty Music, announce the release of their latest collection, Evensong (Hymns and Lullabies at the Close of Day), featuring 13 original hymns and lullabies. The project features guest appearances from Vince GillHeather HeadleyEllie HolcomSierra HullDeborah Kelmme, and Sandra McCracken
 
Evensong is a dream project for Kristyn Getty. On turning 40, she and Keith decided that this project would be the way she would mark the year. First set in motion early in the year, the global pandemic meant that an album intended to bring comfort to homes at evening time was also recorded during a shelter at home season. Album producer Ben Shive was able to gather recordings from each musical collaborator and masterfully create a project fusing the Celtic, folk, bluegrass, classical, and Americana sound the Gettys have become known for around the world. The cover art was specially created by internationally renowned Irish artist Ross Wilson.
 
“These are lullabies and hymns we have sung to and for our own children,” says Kristyn Getty of her four daughters. “Singing God’s truth into both the more tender and vulnerable moments of the day has been a centerpiece of raising our own kids. I know I need true words spoken into my heart and mind to help de-clutter all that presses in upon me from day to day.  I hope these songs help people dwell on the Lord and His promises; to release a burdened mind, to calm a restless heart and point us towards real peace in Christ.”
 
Recently, Getty Music received four nominations for the 51st Annual GMA Dove Awards that will be handed out on TBN (Trinity Broadcasting Network) Friday, October 30th:

About Keith and Kristyn Getty
Keith and Kristyn Getty occupy a unique space in the world of music as leading modern hymn writers. In re-inventing and popularizing the traditional hymn form, the Gettys are championing a catalog of songs that teach Christian doctrine and cross musical genres.
 
Their hymns are sung throughout the world, with “In Christ Alone” (penned by Keith and Stuart Townend) anchoring their canon of globally-sung songs that includes more than seventy titles listed by CCLI in its US and UK top 2000 lists. Their original publishers, Integrity Music, have estimated that more than 100 million people around the world sing their hymns every year.
 
The couple also tours internationally - their Christmas show plays annually at Carnegie Hall, the Kennedy Center, and is the feature of PBS & BBC television broadcasts. Their hymn tours have played in churches and theatres internationally. They are regular guests at venues from the Grand Ole Opry House to the Royal Albert Hall and have sung for presidents, prime ministers, and the UK National Prayer Breakfast at Houses of Parliament. This year they launched a new season of SING! arena events across the world, starting in their home towns of Belfast and Nashville.
 
Keith and Kristyn continue to oversee the Getty Music organization with the SING! movement central to their future vision. Recent years have seen the launch of the Sing! book and the annual SING! conference in Nashville, and this year they launched a global online learning program and foundation with the resources to help individual families, and churches sing.
 
Keith was recently awarded Officer of the Order of the British Empire personally by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II – the first contemporary Christian musician ever to receive this honor. Together with their four daughters, Keith and Kristyn live between Northern Ireland and Nashville.
