Nashville, TN - May 17, 2024 - Atlantic Recording Artist Colton Dixon has released a brand new single, "UP+UP," available across all DSPs today and impacting radio on June 28th. The perfect upbeat sing-a-long song for summer, Dixon will perform the track live for the first time at the annual Christian Music Broadcasters MOMENTUM conference in Orlando, FL. on Thursday, May 30th. 
"Life is tough, but I believe God wants the best for us," Dixon shares about the song. "Though life doesn’t come without trials, I believe that God’s plan is to give us hope and a future - a plan that always says ‘up and up’ again."

"Musically I wanted to mirror the message of this song, which is this - 'don’t let life knock you down, but put your hope in God and He will take you ‘up and up’ again.'"

In addition to just wrapping the succesful spring 2024 "Love & Light Tour" with Jordan Feliz, most recently fans saw Dixon, along with Danny Gokey and Melinda Doolittle, perform a special tribute to their friend, MANDISA, on American Idol.
 
Dixon also released the title track for the feature film SIGHT, which comes to theaters Memorial Day weekend and stars Greg Kinnear and Terry Chen. The stunning music video for “Rest of My Life (From the Original Motion Picture SIGHT)," debuted on his YouTube page this week.
 
2023 was a landmark year for Dixon. He saw his massive No. 1 hit “Build A Boat" receive nominations for both a K-LOVE Fan Award and GMA Dove Award for Song of the Year, released his bestselling 7-song CANVAS EP featuring the top ten single, “My Light,” performed on FOX & Friends and The Kelly Clarkson Show, gave a stunning performance of the National Anthem for The Kansas City Chiefs and had his biggest touring year ever, hitting over 120 U.S. cities.

About Colton Dixon: Colton Dixon turns personal truths, stories, and experiences into universal anthems. He first emerged as a phenomenon after finishing in the top seven on Season 11 of American Idol. Delivering a series of fan favorite albums, 2013’s A Messenger achieved “the biggest first-week sales by a new solo Christian act” and catapulted into the Top 15 of the Billboard 200 and #1 on the Billboard Christian Albums Chart, not to mention, joining the iconic company of Harry Connick, Jr. and Billy Joel as a Steinway & Sons artist. A year later, Anchor yielded his third and fourth #1 hits on Christian Hot AC with “More of You” and “Through It All.” In 2017, he returned to #1 on the Christian Albums Chart for the third time. He has collected a pair of Dove Awards in the categories of “Rock/Contemporary Album” and “Recorded Music Packaging.” Following an invite from the White House, he also shined at the 2019 National Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony in addition to performing on Good Morning America, Entertainment Tonight and in the pages of People magazine. During 2020, he embarked on a new chapter with Atlantic Records ignited by the self-titled Colton Dixon EP and runaway hit “Miracles”—one of his most popular tracks to date. 2022 saw him make his show-stopping debut at the Grand Ole Opry amid kicking off another era and experiencing a creative breakthrough with “Build A Boat.” Between the original and duet version with multi platinum country songstress Gabby Barrett, it has reeled in over 100 million streams. It stood out as “the longest running Mediabase Christian AC #1 song of 2022” and locked down #1 on the Billboard Hot Christian Songs Chart and Christian AC Airplay Chart. People premiered the accompanying music video and hailed it as “inspiring” for its depiction of the work of medical charity Mercy Ships. Now, Dixon captivated once again on his 2023 EP, Canvas [Atlantic Records], introduced by the top ten single “My Light," as well as his 2023 Christmas single, "Home for Christmas." 2024 brings new music from Dixon, starting with his brand-new track, “Rest of My Life” being used as the closing song for the new Angel Studios film SIGHT, starring Terry Chen and Greg Kinnear, and brand-new radio single, "Up+Up."
