If you’ve ever wondered what a contemporary Christian artist sounds or looks like, picture the face of David Crowder.

With his bushy beard, long hair, and trucker hat, he is changing the way people think about Christian music.

After 12 years fronting the David Crowder Band, in 2012 David decided to go solo and move to Atlanta. His first two solo albums debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Christian Albums chart.

And he has been nominated three times for a Grammy. Crowder is currently is touring with the band MercyMe on their Imagine Nation tour for his latest album “I Know A Ghost”. His song “Red Letters” has received over two million views on YouTube since it’s release in October 2018.

He joined Lois Reitzes in studio to discuss the art of contemporary Christian music and his growth in the industry.

“Being in Atlanta has changed me, it has changed my outlook on a lot of things,” he said. “There’s so much more beauty in our differences that are celebrated rather than dividing.”

He will perform in Macon at the Macon Centerplex Coliseum on March 17 and at the Good Friday Concert on April 19 at Ameris Bank Amphetheatre.
