NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Oct. 23, 2017 – GMA Dove Award-winning and platinum-selling artist Mark Schultz will launch A Different Kind of Christmas Tour this December, joined by husband-and-wife duo Love & the Outcome. The annual holiday tour is in its third year and gets its name from Schultz’s #1 holiday-themed radio single, “Different Kind of Christmas.” The single went viral in December 2014, and its accompanying video has since been viewed more than 24 million times on Facebook and shared over 900,000 times. The song was inspired by the life of Schultz’s father-in-law and was penned shortly after his passing.

A Different Kind of Christmas Tour will kick off Dec. 1, and hit cities in Michigan, Wisconsin, Ohio, Maryland, Tennessee, North Carolina, and possibly more. Audiences will be treated to Schultz’s masterful storytelling, paired with Love & the Outcome’s pop-rock stylings. Together, they’ll create the perfect blend to ring in the Christmas season.

ABOUT MARK SCHULTZ
During the past decade, turning real life experiences into heartfelt anthems of hope and redemption has made Mark Schultz one of the Christian community’s most acclaimed singer/songwriters. Originally hailing from Colby, Kansas, Schultz moved to Nashville to realize his musical ambitions and found inspiration while working as a youth pastor. Schultz booked the city’s famed Ryman Auditorium, and with the overwhelming support of friends and family, his show there was a sell-out. This virtually unheard-of feat for a new artist landed Schultz a record deal where he went on to sell over 1.3 million albums and garner 13 No. 1 singles to date. He has landed the top spot on Billboard magazine’s Christian Adult Contemporary Songwriter list and has been featured on 48 Hours, Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, CNN and more. His album Mark Schultz Live: A Night of Stories & Songs was certified Platinum by the R.I.A.A. and earned Schultz his first GMA Dove Award.
ABOUT LOVE & THE OUTCOME
Winnipeg-born Love & The Outcome (L&TO) is the husband/wife duo of vocalist Jodi King and bass player Chris Rademaker. The couple signed with Nashville-based Word Entertainment in Spring 2012 and have quickly emerged as one of the most dynamic and exciting new voices in the Contemporary Christian Music genre. The duo’s eponymous 2013 debut LP came on the heels of their debut single, “He Is With Us,” which peaked at No. 7 on Billboard’s Christian Songs chart and has sold more than 121,000 copies in the U.S. to date, racking up another 3.5 million streams on Spotify and 5 million views (cume) on YouTube. Their 2013 debut has now sold over 80,000 units to date and earned the band a Dove Award nomination for Best New Artist as well as GMA Canada Covenant Awards in 2014 for New Artist of the Year, Song of the Year, Recorded Song of the Year and Pop/Contemporary Song of the Year. Their 2015 Covenant Awards included Album of the Year and Group of the Year wins. The duo’s sophomore set, These Are The Days, has sold over 20,000 copies since it’s release in September 2017. This fall, L&TO will debut a Christmas EP.
