20,000 HELP JASON CRABB KICK OFF LOVE IS STRONGER TOUR

Written by SGN Scoops on April 5, 2014 – 7:03 am -

jasonwinterjam(Nashville, TN) April 4, 2014 – JASON CRABB - Grammy Award Winner and 21 time GMA Dove Award winner  - kicked off his 2014 Love Is Stronger tour with a little help from his friends. Well, make that 20,000 friends! Crabb recently began his tour with a stop in Knoxville, TN at Thompson-Boling Arena as part of Winterfest weekend. Appearing alongside Duck Dynasty’s Luke and Sadie Robertson and the band Planetshakers, Jason’s soaring vocals, signature guitar skills and his amazing band filled the arena and had the crowd of over 20,000 teenagers on their feet with hands in the air!

The theme of the night was one that Jason is very familiar with – camo! In honor of the Robertson appearance attendees were asked to wear camo and Jason was happy to ablige! “Anyone who knows me, knows I LOVE to hunt,” said Crabb. “So when they asked for everyone to wear camo, I was in!” Jason surprised John Luke Robertson and his sister Sadie Robertson with a presentation of two very special “Duck-Crabb Calls” as the audience roared with laughter and applause!

From Knoxville, Jason made the trek back home immediately to Nashville, TN to make a special appearance during the WinterJam Tour Spectacular at Bridgestone arena in Nashville. Jason surprised the audience as he stepped into the middle of the massive arena to introduce his friends, NewSong. Crabb joined an impressive line-up of surprise guests including Carrie Underwood & Mike Fisher and Francesca Battistelli. The evening featured performances from Tenth Avenue North, Thousand Foot Krutch, Plumb, Colton Dixon, Lecrae and NewSong.

Along with the new tour, Jason recently partnered with relief organization Feed the Children. Around the world, Feed The Children provides nourishing meals every school day to more than 350,000 children. In 2013jasonduck, the organization distributed over $129 million in food, medicine, and other essentials to children in 23 countries. The international programs, including child sponsorships, meet the immediate needs of children while also addressing the root causes of poverty through education and livelihood development.

jasonfingernailsJason recently made a voyage to Honduras, learning first-hand how the ministry of Feed the Children works in the lives of those it touches. “I sponsor a boy named Christian, and I got to meet him and his family for the first time” Jason shared. “It really was amazing to me to see the faces of these children, who have so little, full of smiles and laughter. I am proud to partner with Feed the Children to bring medical supplies, food and necessities to them.”
Jason’s latest single, “Love Is Stronger,” is making an impact on listeners as he criss-crosses the nation encouraging audiences with songs of hope and love. MUSE concerts – a leader in tour promotion – will provide tour support on select dates during the Love Is Stronger tour. All tour information is available at www.JasonCrabb.com.

The annual Harmony Honors recognize the best and brightest singers, songwriters, quartets, groups, and innovators in this unique American musical genre that has comforted, inspired, and entertained generations of fans.
 
This year the Harmony Honors will recognize two of Southern Gospel Music’s most storied publishing resources: Pathway Press and Stamps-Baxter Music. Southern Gospel aficionados will recognize Pathway Press as publisher of the classic “Red Back”Church Hymnal, used by thousands of churches across the South for over sixty years. Generations of gospel groups have dipped into the depths of the old “Red Back” hymnal for classic quartet and convention songs by such legendary songwriters as Albert Brumley, Vep Ellis, Luther Presley, Lee Roy Abernathy, and many others.
 
As for Stamps-Baxter Music, its classic “shaped-note” song books — with titles like Super SpecialsCrystal RaysSilver Tones, and Pearls of Paradise — have been used and cherished by Southern Gospel artists for over 75 years.
 
“I’m excited to be a part of this evening honoring the musical heritage that is so closely tied to gospel music,” said Harmony Honors host Jason Crabb. “The songs in the ‘Red Back’ hymnal and the Stamps-Baxter songbooks are the foundation for this music that is so loved. This is a well-deserved honor for both publishers and it’s going to be a great night!”
 
Among the musical guests for this year’s Harmony Honors will be some of the most beloved and popular names in Southern Gospel Music, including the LeFevre Quartet, the Perrys, the Tribute Quartet, Legacy Five, Three Bridges, the Nelons, Gerald Wolfe from Greater Vision, Karen Peck and New River, Jeff & Sheri Easter, the Bowling Family, Gold City, the Mark Trammell Quartet, the Whisnants, Stan Whitmire and the Mylon Hayes Family.
 
Also scheduled for a special guest appearance is former U.S. Attorney General John Ashcroft, himself an accomplished musician and long-time fan of Southern Gospel Music.
 
TBN Vice President Matthew Crouch noted that Southern Gospel Music has been a regular part of TBN’s history over the past 40-plus years. “We’ve welcomed many Southern Gospel greats over the years,” he said. “The rich harmonies and inspirational message of this sacred music have been a blessing to generations of TBN viewers. We’re privileged once again to host the Harmony Honors.”
 
Admission to the March 25th live TBN taping of the Harmony Honors at Nashville’s Trinity Music City is free to the public, with 1,500 seats available. Doors open at 6 p.m. (Central Time) and the program begins at 7 p.m.
