PLUMB Releases Second Book: FIGHT FOR HER…Even if You Have to Fight Her

 Artist Announces Upcoming Tour to Support New Album that Features the Title Track to BEAUTIFULLY BROKEN Film.
Nashville, TN – Prolific multi-genre recording artist PLUMB continues to inspire and empower with the release of her sophomore book FIGHT FOR HER…Even if You Have To Fight Her.   FIGHT FOR HER is a moving challenge to fight for each other – even if that means fighting with each other. Our relationships can often be messy, but when we challenge and support each other with love and grace, lives are transformed.      “Originally I planned to write a book for mothers and daughters, but as I started working on the book, it hit me that ALL women are daughters, whether they ever become a mother or not,” Plumb explains. “We need to be reminded that we areall sons and daughters of God and we have been and will continue to be fought for…regardless of our earthly experience with the parents we have or haven’t had.”   Drawn from the generational lessons of both being and having a daughter, PLUMB explores fundamental questions everyone, especially females, face with depth and levity. Her sense of humor and down-to-earth style draw us to hold on to Jesus and each other with full hearts, as we strive for the best for each other. With thoughtful questions at the end of each chapter, FIGHT FOR HER offers an empowering, encouraging and enriching read, both as a stand-alone book or small group discussion.     She continues, “I wrote the book from my perspective as a woman to challenge the way we, as women, communicate with each other; however, the sentiment resonates with men equally. Often ‘fighting for’ can look like ‘fighting with’, and ‘standing up for’ can be interpreted as ‘standing up to’. I hope FIGHT FOR HER begins a revolution of people committed to fighting for, supporting, and challenging each other to be all we were created to be, by communicating the truth of what God says about us, to us, in love.  Sometimes, that is telling someone who thinks or feels unworthy how beautiful and valuable they truly are. And sometimes it means telling them no.”       FIGHT FOR HER comes on the heels of the BEAUTIFULLY BROKEN album, written simultaneously, that released in June. The book and album speak to one another as PLUMB continues her commitment to sharing transparent, personal stories that remind us that we are all broken, we are not alone, and we are all loved fiercely by God who can powerfully restore us in ways we could never imagine.    Following the themes of the book and album, PLUMB has just launched a playful Alice in Wonderland inspired video for the album’s title track. It serves as a reminder that, much like a teacup, we are all beautiful and valuable, but easily broken.  PLUMB shares, “No matter how broken we are, it doesn’t change who we belong to, our beauty, our value, or how He loves us.  No matter what we have done or what has been done to us, we are still His. He wants us to give Him that brokenness, the chips and breaks, the pain and sadness, to advance His kingdom. He invites us to celebrate how we are all His children. That ultimately is all that matters. Being His. Being beautiful. Even in our brokenness.”   The “Beautifully Broken” video can be viewed here: http://plumbmusic.net/beautifully-broken-official-music-video/   The title track is also the theme song for the film Beautifully Broken, just released in theaters on August 24.   PLUMB tour dates: 8/25 – Waconia MN  9/2 – West Liberty, OH

ANDREW PETERSON ANNOUNCES 19TH ANNUAL BEHOLD THE LAMB OF GOD TOUR

ANDREW PETERSON ANNOUNCES 19TH ANNUAL

BEHOLD THE LAMB OF GOD TOUR

International Justice Mission, The Rabbit Room Sponsor Tour Featuring Special Guest Scott Mulvahill, Artists Jill Phillips, Andy Gullahorn, Ben Shive, Gabe Scott

Peterson’s Resurrection Letters Vol. I Hit Billboard Americana/Folk Chart’s Top 5

Dove Award-nominated recording artist, songwriter, filmmaker and award-winning author Andrew Peterson announces his 19th Annual Behold The Lamb Of God tour sponsored by International Justice Mission and The Rabbit Room. Logging multiple sold-out events each year since its inception in 2000, the Christmas tour has become a yearly tradition for Peterson and his band, as well as families and churches across the nation who look forward to attending each holiday season, recounting the Christmas story through song.

This year’s production, featuring special guest Scott Mulvahill and artists Jill Phillips, Andy Gullahorn, Ben Shive and Gabe Scott, launches in Houston, TX with back-to-back nights Nov. 28 and 29 before traversing nine states and wrapping up Dec. 15 in Danbury, CT. The Behold The Lamb Of God tour also stops for the 15th consecutive year at Nashville’s iconic Ryman Auditorium where it is expected to sell out both its Dec. 9 and 10 events. Tickets are available now through www.andrew-peterson.com (see full list of tour dates below).

“I just can’t believe we still get to do this,” says Peterson. “If you had told me back in 2000, I would have laughed. Playing these songs with such dear friends for so many years is a rare and profound blessing.”

Peterson launched his Behold The Lamb Of God tour nearly two decades ago to present a musical rendition of the Christmas story and to reinforce the true meaning of the season. In 2004, the success of the tour led Peterson to record the award-winning album, Behold The Lamb Of God: The True Tall Tale Of The Coming Of Christ. In 2009, Peterson released a 2-disc project marking the 10th anniversary of the tour that includes a remastered version of the 2004 CD and a live recording of 2008’s tour.

Leading up to his 2018 Behold The Lamb Of God tour, Peterson will be featured on The Bible Tour along with Matt Maher, Natalie Grant and more, and is working on a new The Wingfeather Saga film to be revealed soon.

Earlier this year, Peterson released Resurrection Letters: Prologue and Resurrection Letters, Vol. I from Centricity Music amidst 5-star acclaim. Prologue is a collection of five “waiting songs” meant to remind listeners of the gravity of the crucifixion while Vol. I begins with the heartbeat of the resurrected Christ, exploring the resurrection itself and its centrality to Christianity. Vol. 1 also became a Billboard Top 5 Americana/Folk Albums chart hit while being called a “masterpiece” (CCM Magazine), “one of his best” (The Gospel Coalition) and “simply remarkable” (Jesus Freak Hideout). The album also features the RELEVANT-lauded video “Is He Worthy?” that has been viewed more than 1.2 million times on Peterson’s Facebook and YouTube pages alone.

2nd Annual “Big Church Night Out” Tour

2nd Annual “Big Church Night Out” Tour
to Feature Crowder, Jordan Feliz, Sarah Reeves & More!
Illusionist Brock Gill and Worship Leader Jamison Strain Round Out Evening
Public On Sale Begins June 25th!
Nashville, Tenn. (Jun. 19, 2018) – Whether it’s the church around the corner or a church on the other side of the globe, we all connect to God in different ways.

“Big Church Night Out” is a celebration of the beauty and diversity of the many different ways we worship while uniting behind the one thing that unites us all. It’s a night of worship, entertainment, music, prayer, laughter, art, reflection, and so much more. Whether coming alone, loading up the entire family or a bringing a church group, this night is designed for EVERYONE.

Featuring a different line-up each year, this model tour began in 2017 with headliners Newsboys. This second annual tour takes church on the road with a variety of great names in Christian music. The 2018 lineup includes Crowder, Jordan Feliz and Sarah Reeves, illusionist Brock Gill and worship leader Jamison Strain.

“I’m so excited to be on the ‘Big Church Night Out’ Tour this fall celebrating the diversity of the Church with some of my good friends,” said Crowder. “It’s going to be a hoot.”

Join the one and only “Swamp-Rock” master – Crowder, who will close out the show each night with a grand finale – along with his good friends on the 2nd Annual “Big Church Night Out” Tour. The tour features the pop catchy sounds of Jordan Feliz, known for his hit song “The River,” and new album release Future with singles “Witness” and “Count That High!”  in addition to singer-songwriter Sarah Reeves, a newcomer on the scene who is rolling out 13 fresh tracks this year, including the recently released “Easy.”

“I’m looking forward to being with my friends Crowder and Jordan Feliz this fall on ‘Big Church Night Out,’” Reeves said. “I can’t wait to play some of my new songs from my new album and connect with everyone who comes out!”

“Big Church Night Out” welcomes back worship leader Jamison Strain, who dove into the inaugural tour last year. “My favorite memory from last year’s ‘Big Church Night Out’  was seeing the church come together as a whole and worship Jesus,” said Strain. “‘Big Church Night Out’ is like a family reunion – a place where denomination gets set aside, worship preference isn’t a thing and the main focus is Jesus. There is something for everyone, from hymns to modern worship. This is a night for the 5-year-old to the 95-year-old.”

The “Big Church Night Out” Tour will also be hosting illusionist Brock Gill, who shows the gospel in ways that you will remember for a lifetime. An evangelist at heart, Gill has shared the gospel message by means of illusions, great escapes and slights of hand to thousands of people worldwide – from youth groups and churches to massive arenas and tours, including Winter Jam.

There will be a variety of special ticket packages from “big group” savings, VIP packages, and family 4-pack specials as well. This is a great opportunity to bring your unchurched friends for them to hear the good news of Jesus Christ. Come out to “Big Church Night Out” and “let’s do church!”

OWL CITY ANNOUNCES CINEMATIC NORTH AMERICAN TOUR

OWL CITY ANNOUNCES CINEMATIC NORTH AMERICAN TOUR

20+ SHOW RUN MARKS OWL CITY’S FIRST TOUR IN OVER THREE YEARS

MATTHEW THIESSEN & THE EARTHQUAKES TO SUPPORT ON ALL DATES

NEW YORK, NY (April 20, 2018) — Owl City announced today the “Cinematic Tour” — his first North American tour in over three years. Kicking off this September in Milwaukee, WI, the tour will bring Owl City (Adam Young) to 24 markets across North America in support of his new album — Cinematic — which is slated for release on June 1.

“After spending the last few years working in my studio, it’s finally time to hit the road,” said Owl City. “I’m excited to pack my bag, grab my guitar, and go on a journey that will take me around the country. See you on the road!”

Supporting Owl City on all dates is friend and fellow collaborator Matthew Thiessen & The Earthquakes. Thiessen is best known for his work as co-founder, lead vocalist and guitarist for the band Relient K, as well as his collaborative work on Owl City’s breakout debut album Ocean Eyes.

The “Cinematic Tour” will bring new music to Owl City fans across the country in support of his new sixth full-length album and first independent offering Cinematic.

Cinematic, which was preceded by a trio of three-song “Reels” (EPs) which are available now, is described by Owl City as, “…a personal narrative, as if a film was made from key scenes throughout my life. My hope is there’s a way to teach yourself to recognize and appreciate what I like to call, ‘movie magic moments’, so you don’t miss out on them. That’s what the title alludes to. You have an audience cheering you on. Everybody is in your corner. Do your best for them.”

The entire undertaking represents the apex of Young’s decade-long output to date. Hailing from the tiny town of Owatonna, Minnesota, he quietly became one of pop’s most ubiquitous voices, selling over 2.5 million albums and 18 million singles globally. 2009’s Ocean Eyes yielded a timeless smash in the form of “Fireflies,” which went seven-times RIAA platinum, soared to #1 in 26 countries, and ignited a meme frenzy in 2017 nearly ten years removed from its initial release. Among a discography of hits, “Good Time (feat. Carly Rae Jepsen)” also earned a triple-platinum certification and toppled charts worldwide.

Presales for the “Cinematic Tour” start on Monday, April 23 at 10:00 AM local time. Public onsale begins next Friday, April 27 at 10:00 AM local time. See full tour dates below.
