Nashville, Tenn. (October 12, 2015) — Chris Tomlin has set out on the second leg of what’s already been the biggest tour of his career, the “Love Ran Red Tour.” Featuring special guests Rend Collective, the 22-city tour kicked off in Nashville last week. Tomlin will continue to share uplifting music from his hit album Love Ran Red, including title track “At The Cross (Love Ran Red),” which recently hit the No. 1 spot on the National Christian Audience chart.
More than 200,000 people attended the first leg of the tour this spring, selling out venues in Chicago, Seattle, Phoenix, Dallas and more. The tour helped raise more than $700K for CURE International, an organization with which Tomlin is partnering for the “Love Ran Red Tour.” For tickets and additional tour information, click here.
Brand new music from Tomlin is resonating with listeners as his recently released single, “Good Good Father,” hit the No. 1 spot on the iTunes Christian Songs Chart the day it released.
In less than two weeks, more than 25 radio stations have added the single, including many large markets across the country and network stations KLOVE, AIR1 and Sirius XM. The single is shooting up the charts, already hitting No. 19 on the National Christian Audience Chart.
“In every record, there’s a song that comes along that I’m just captured by. God is a good Father, and I think people need to hear that more than ever,” Tomlin said. “What a beautiful thing to stand and proclaim and just let people experience the heart and the power of those words – ‘you’re a good good Father.'”
Pat Barrett and Tony Brown wrote “Good Good Father,” and Barrett is featured on the track. “What an honor to carry this song,” Tomlin continued. “It was really important to me that Pat Barrett, who wrote the song, be a part of the recording because he captured the heart so well.”
Tomlin and his wife Lauren recently opened up about their marriage and ministry as they spoke candidly with CALLED Magazine for a cover feature. To read what the two had to say, click here.
Tomlin is also preparing to release ADORE: Christmas Songs of Worship, available October 23. Billboard recently premiered “What Child Is This? (feat. All Sons & Daughters)” along with a Behind The Album feature.
