Product Overview
The list of accomplishments for Chris Tomlin is lengthy. With six records, eight No. 1 radio singles, three GRAMMY nominations, 14 Dove Awards, one platinum and one gold album, and fresh off a multi-sell-out US spring tour and 17-city Passion World Tour, the list of first's is small. But this fall, releases the highly-anticipated first Christmas album from Tomlin, Glory in the Highest - Christmas Songs of Worship. Recorded over two nights in Nashville, Tomlin gathered a community of worship leaders and artists to lend their voices to the special live recording. Featuring familiar classics including "Angels We Have Heard On High," "O Holy Night," "Joy to the World", to which he wrote a new refrain, and four new sure-to-be long-time seasonal favorites, Chris desires people to experience these familiar carols as songs of worship. Produced by Ed Cash, and with noted participation by Matt Redman, Christy Nockels and newcomer singer/songwriter, Audrey Assad, Glory In The Highest will be a Christmas favorite for years to come.
About Chris Tomlin
Chris Tomlin is among the most well-known and influential artists in contemporary Christian music. Referred to by TIME Magazine as "the most often sung artist anywhere." Selling over 8 million albums, Tomlin has 16 No. 1 radio singles, and the Grammy® winner’s list of music awards include an American Music Award, 3 Billboard Music Awards, 21 Dove Awards, a BMI Songwriter of the Year Award and more.

Tomlin consistently has several songs in the top 20 of the Top 100 CCLI songs. BMI and GMA Dove Awards' 2014 Songwriter of the Year, Tomlin’s “How Great Is Our God” was his first No. 1 on the CCLI Top 25, becoming one of the fasting rising modern day hymns in CCLI chart history. Tomlin made history as his No. 1 single “Jesus Messiah” (Hello Love) garnered 97 adds at radio, making it the biggest ever add date in Christian radio history, and recently tied the record for most top tens in the history of Billboard's Hot Christian Songs chart as "At the Cross" (Love Ran Red) broke into the top ten.

In the midst of his record-breaking success, Tomlin continues touring and leading at Passion Conference gatherings across the US and worldwide, including his recent Worship Night In America events, which sold out NYC’s Madison Square Garden, Denver’s Red Rock’s and Sacramento’s Sleep Train Arena. Burning Lights debuted at No. 1 atop the Billboard 200 in January 2013, making history as only the fourth Christian music album to do so. Honored last fall as the fourth recipient of the SoundExchange Digital Radio Award, recognizing more than 1 billion digital radio plays, Tomlin’s latest album Never Lose Sight and debut children’s book Good Good Father are available now.
