(NASHVILLE, TN) – Multi-platinum recording artist Michael W. Smith has announced plans for the final leg to the successful “Worship MusicCityUpdate_ScreenShot20130827at115918AM_1Around The World” tour and has invited Jason Crabb, Christian Music’s reigning Male Vocalist of the Year and Artist of the Year, to be his very special guest. The tour is slated to hit approximately 12 cities across the country, including Tulsa, OK; Longview, TX; Syracuse, NY; Bangor, ME; among others.

In the past year, Smith has toured to over a dozen countries including Brazil, Abu Dabi, Baharain, Europe, Canada, Malasia, Singapore and will just land in the United States from Iceland as this final tour leg begins.

Worship as a corporate body continues to be the theme for this tour and attendees are in for a special evening as they experience the musical genius of Michael W. Smith and the soulful voice of Jason Crabb.

“I’ve known Jason Crabb for years,” Smith says. “Everyone in the business knows he’s an amazing singer – but what I love most about him is his heart. The genuine love and care he displays to every single person he comes in contact with is something we all can learn from. I can’t wait to share the stage with him!”

“To share the stage with Michael W. Smith is going to be a very special thing for me,” says Crabb. “One of the first times I heard Michael was during a period in my life when things weren’t going so well. I found hope and encouragement in his music. Never in a million years did I imagine that one day I would share the stage with him – we’re going to have a great time!”

During the evening both artists will perform separately, sharing music from their individual careers, then join together on stage for unforgettable powerhouse moments of music.

NASHVILLE, Tenn.—February 17th, 2012—Together Again (Gaither Music Group), the all-new studio recording from the multiple award-winning Crabb Family, hit shelves and online stores this week, taking the #1 position on the southern Gospel sales chart according to Nielsen SoundScan.  The ten-song release, produced by lead singer and GRAMMY® Award-winning solo artist Jason Crabb, landed the #6 position on the contemporary Christian sales chart in addition to landing at #123 on the BILLBOARD Top 200 list. “This is really an encouragement to us,” stated Jason.  “As a family, to be back in the studio and back on stage for a limited run has been a blast.  To see others embrace us and get excited about new music from us, well, that is an honor and it inspires us.  We are all doing what we do today because of the support of countless friends and fans over the years.  We are reminded yet again of their encouragement and love to us.  We appreciate them so much.”“We are pleased to see such a strong response to the new Crabb Family release,” stated Barry Jennings, president of Gaither Music Group.  “This family created something special years ago that clearly remains significant to their many fans who keep coming back for more.” An extensive tv and media campaign surrounding the new release began earlier this month on networks including GAC, GMC, RFD, FamilyNet, TBN, CTS, CTN, Vision TV, Grace, Legacy, FFE, Miracle and Airtime.    Together Again is available digitally and at retail stores everywhere.  It is distributed exclusively by EMI CMG Distribution.  For further information regarding The Crabb Family, visit About The Crabb Family
