“Multi-platinum selling MercyMe has earned their sixth GRAMMY® nod for the chart-topper “Grace Got You,” as heard on their GRAMMY® nominated album LIFER. The single, nominated for Best Contemporary Christian Music Performance/Song, topped multiple radio charts including the Billboard Christian Airplay (BDS), AC Monitored and AC Indicator charts as well as the Mediabase Christian Audience chart. Adding to the resonance, the winsome track garnered placement in key playlists including Apple Music’s A-List Christian, Spotify’s Top Christian and Amazon Music’s Top 100 Most Played Christian.”
The 61st Annual GRAMMY® Awards aired February 10, 2019 on CBS.
Crowder posts an interesting article on family history, which we will provide a link here, CROWDER FAMILY HISTORY, then provides a little philosophy behind his music.
“The current social and political atmosphere, even on a prefatory level, can give rise to a ruinous reduction in your sense of wellbeing. Watching the news, or reading editorials, or op-editorials, or listening to the people at the table next to yours at Denny’s, brings on a sadness no amount of bacon can service. I’ve tried. But I think that we are all a lot more the same than we are different. We’re all just dirt and water and the breath of God. It’s just a painted line. Or, some railroad tracks. Either way, it’s a thing someone put there without asking. Maybe, what I’m supposed to be doing, having been lavished upon, is pointing out that a person can stand right there in the divide, brave and free, and not feel a thing. I know what it means to have the divide spanned on my behalf.
Grace works on us all just the same. Love works on us all just the same. Freedom works on us all just the same. There’s only one definitive line, and that’s the one between death and life. These songs are about that divide spanned on our behalf and I pray they are subversive and healing in their insistence of that reality.”
