(Nashville, Tenn.) Feb. 1, 2012—Songwriter and worship leader, new Essential Records signing Andy Cherry debuts his first national label project, Nothing Left to Fear, on March 6. The project’s lead single “Our God’s Alive” is currently impacting radio, and Cherry plans to support his release on tour with Inpop Records artist Jimmy Needham next month.
Produced by Jason Ingram (Chris Tomlin, Tenth Avenue North, Sanctus Real), Nothing Left to Fear follows Cherry as he grapples with the complexities of genuine faith. To Cherry, there’s strength -- and closeness to God -- in admitting that you don’t have it all figured out. Nothing Left to Fear is his invitation to question, learn, grow and worship together with him.
“God’s got really broad shoulders, and He can handle your honesty and confusion – even your anger,” says Cherry. “In my writing and playing, I hope to point people to a broader view of God; to encourage them to dialogue in honesty, like David did.”
Among those songs from Cherry’s debut is kick-off radio single “Our God’s Alive,” a celebration of God’s presence and power working in our everyday lives. The song, released to both the Christian AC and CHR radio formats, has amassed more than 7.8 million cumulative impressions to date. The song has been added by such powerhouses as K-LOVE and AIR-1 radio networks.
Cherry will debut this song and others from Nothing Left to Fear live on tour with singer-songwriter Jimmy Needham beginning next month. Having wrapped a successful run on Matt Maher’s “The Love In Between Tour” last fall, Cherry will now join Needham’s “Grace Amazing Tour” for 15+ dates through late March. Visit www.jimmyneedham.com for an up-to-date tour itinerary. In addition, Cherry will showcase his new music on a separate run of more than 20 one-off dates, including engagements opening for artists like Tenth Avenue North this spring.

ARTICLE Slightly Obsessed #184: The Mark of Maturity
The infant finishes his bottle and smiles contentedly up at his mother. A trickle of milk courses down from the corner of his mouth. It’s a sweet scene because that’s what babies do. They are born with immature digestive systems and no teeth. Mother’s milk or formula are necessary for the child to survive and thrive. As they grow, their teeth begin to come in, their digestive abilities mature, and they can tolerate solid food.
