(Nov. 10, 2016) – With sold out stops across the country including North Carolina, Minnesota, Louisiana, Pennsylvania and more, Crowder’s headlining “American Prodigal Tour” featuring Tedashii and The New Respects has wrapped its coast to coast trek. The 2X GRAMMY® nominee returned to the Grand Ole Opry stage the day following the tour. The sold-out Opry performances of “Run Devil Run” and “All We Sinners,” both found on Crowder’s latest record American Prodigal, took place at the historic Ryman Auditorium, birthplace of the Grand Ole Opry.
American Prodigal garnered a strong debut hitting No. 1 on the Christian & Gospel Albums Chart, No. 3 on the Digital Albums Chart, No. 5 on the Top Albums Billboard Chart and No. 12 on the Top 200 Billboard Chart.
