Brandon Heath Announces 24-City 'Blue Mountain Tour'
Provident Label Group
CBN.com Award-winning artist and songwriter Brandon Heath announces the 24-city Blue Mountain Tour, named for his forthcoming studio project, Blue Mountain, due out Oct. 9, 2012. Heath is joined by label mate – celebrated singer, songwriter and worship leader – Matt Maher on all dates; the tour is presented by Food for the Hungry.
Kicking off October 11 in Milwaukee, Wis., the Blue Mountain Tour will visit cities including Chicago, Knoxville, Indianapolis and St. Louis. A night of rich musical layers, fans can expect to hear Heath’s hits (“Give Me Your Eyes,” “I’m Not Who I Was” and “Your Love”) as well as songs from his fourth full-length studio album, Blue Mountain. The forthcoming 12-track project merges modern music-making and ancient tones, taking listeners on a musical journey full of heart and back-porch ease via Heath’s signature storytelling.
“Similar to the new album, this tour invites the listener to a special experience to come on up to ‘Blue Mountain,’ a fictional place where this music was created,” says Heath.
Heath shares the stage with Essential Records’ Matt Maher, known for worship staples like “Your Grace Is Enough,” “Christ Is Risen” and the radio hit “Hold Us Together.” Also part of the night, audiences will meet the talented spoken-word poet Micah Bournes and new independent sibling acoustic act, The Church Sisters. Heath will continue highlighting the work of Food for the Hungry on tour, specifically its efforts in the villages of Kitgum, Uganda. These are communities in which Brandon Heath's audiences have wholly sustained the child sponsorship program.
“I’m thrilled to see and participate in this next level of Brandon's touring career. From the first time I heard his music, I was hooked by the storytelling set to great melody,” shares Bryan Myers, talent agent, CAA. “This new CD is storytelling taken to the mountains...Blue Mountain. A look inside all of us and what our Redeemer sees underneath the dirt and grime and His beauty that lies inside.”
Tour promoters concur, “We’re thrilled to be a part of the Blue Mountain Tour here in Texas this Fall. We are equally excited about this next chapter in Brandon’s career. His latest single, “Jesus in Disguise”, is pure brilliance and Christian radio fans are sure to embrace it,” offers Greg Carnes, Greg Carnes Productions.
“This tour is full of familiar songs and faces, with music reflecting life-changing truth,” shares
Heath. “Plus, it’s all got a new sound, some new faces and a few surprises. We’ve got great things planned, I think you’re going to love it, so come on up to Blue Mountain.”
