Nashville, TN – Jason Crabb – Grammy® award winner, 2012 GMA Dove Awards Artist of the Year and Male Vocalist of the Year – kicked off an extensive summer tour with an appearance at last night’s BMI Christian Music Awards in Nashville, TN. Jason performed the award-winning song “Sometimes I Cry,” written by his father, Gerald Crabb, to a standing ovation from the industry crowd that included musicians TobyMac, Chris Tomlin, Brandon Heath and industry leaders Eddie DeGarmo, Bill Hearn, Terry Hemmings, Rod Riley and Barry Jennings. The tour, which features Jason and his band – Blaine Johnson (Keyboards,) Lorie Sikes (Bass Guitar,) and Michael Rowsey (Drums) – will visit over 30 cities wrapping up on September 23, 2012.

Crabb is currently preparing a new project with award-winning producers Ed Cash, Jay DeMarcus (Rascal Flatts) and Wayne Haun. With his down-home personality and soulful, heartfelt voice, Jason Crabb has become one of Christian music’s most popular artists. With a string of awards, industry acknowledgements, number one hits and chart-topping singles, a tour schedule of over 200 dates annually, ongoing tv appearances, a book on the shelves and acclaimed recordings, this vocal powerhouse’s talent is topped only by his genuine personality and concern for others. You don’t want to miss this tour!
