(Nashville, Tenn) April 14, 2011—This year’s “Female Vocalist” Dove Award nominee, critically acclaimed singer/songwriter Laura Story, whose title-track single has dominated the iTunes ® Christian Singles Chart at No. 1 for four consecutive weeks, released her sophomore album Blessings this week. While the album debuted in the Top 5 on iTunes ® Top Christian Albums Chart, it’s also making a lasting impression on critics:
“Blessings is a worship record all the way. Her work focuses on lyrics from the heart, songs that reflect on hope, injustice, redemption, and love. Time spent with Blessings lets her earnest, tender music unfold into something sweetly beautiful.”-JesusFreakHideout.com
“These songs of praise and surrender to God will encourage you to fall in love with Him all over again.”- CBN.com
“Songstress Laura Story may have emerged on the scene as ‘the girl who wrote ‘Indescribable,’ but her latest offering cements her as a stunning worship leader and vocalist. Her voice is pure and flawless, and each song is perfectly arranged … and the result is an incredible work of art.” --CCM Magazine
"Story’s vulnerability on tracks like ‘Blessings’ keep this from becoming 'just another worship album.'"—ChristianityToday.com
“Blessings completely solidifies Laura as the premier singer-songwriter in the Inspirational genre…Don’t miss out on one of the best albums of the year!”-NewReleaseTuesday.com
Story recently stopped by The Fish in Atlanta & Nashville in addition to K-LOVE’s morning show with Lisa & Eric to talk about her new album and the self-titled track. After releasing a few short weeks ago, the single is quickly climbing the radio charts, currently landing in the Top 10 at Soft AC/INSPO and No. 21 on Billboard’s Christian AC Chart.
Recorded in Chris Tomlin’s studio in Atlanta, GA and produced by prominent producer Nathan Nockels (Passion, Chris Tomlin and Philips, Craig & Dean), Blessings is the follow-up album to her freshman release Great God Who Saves. The new record is infused with pop energy and singer/songwriter warmth. While Story penned most of the ten songs herself, she also co-wrote with her good friend Mac Powell from Third Day and Brenton Brown.
With her album dropping this week, Story is currently in route across the south promoting Blessings, on April 20th she’ll take a break from the road and perform on the 42nd Annual Dove Awards at the FOX Theatre in Atlanta, GA. The highly anticipated event will air on GMC Easter Sunday at 7pm EST. Tickets to the 42nd Annual GMA Dove Awards are now on sale at the Fox Theatre box office in Atlanta or at www.ticketmaster.com.

Outside the door of his room, a cacophony of voices from the nurses’ station jarred our shattered nerves.
