Nashville, Tenn. (January 22, 2015) - GRAMMY®-nominee and folktronica artist Crowder is celebrating his first career No. 1 single for "Come As You Are." The song, the second single from his album Neon Steeple, is slowly moving towards one of the most successful and influential of Crowder's career as a solo artist and with the David Crowder*Band. "Come As You Are" sits in the top spot on the Christian AC Indicator chart this week and holds a Top 10 spot on the National Christian Audience chart, reaching a listenership of over 7 million people.
Crowder will travel to Los Angeles next month for the 57th GRAMMY® Awards where "Come As You Are" is up for Contemporary Christian Music Performance/Song. The GRAMMY® nomination is the first of Crowder's solo career. This week, Crowder was also honored with two nominations for the 3rd Annual K-LOVE Fan Awards. "Come As You Are" was nominated for Best Worship Song and Crowder earned a Best Male Artist nomination. The award show will take place May 31 in Nashville.
Starting in February, Crowder will be criss-crossing the country as a part of The Rock & Worship Roadshow with MercyMe, Jamie Grace, Matt Maher, Tedashii and more. To celebrate his recent accolades, Crowder has also extended his "Neon Steeple Tour" to hit 13 more cities this April.
