“We’re really looking forward to the upcoming tour,” says David Crowder. “We have been great friends with the Shane’s and Robbie’s band for a long time, and have talked about putting a tour together for a good while. Plus, the thought of seeing these new songs come to life in a live setting, with the visual presence of attachment to lives, is really exciting.”
“We’re excited about this tour,” says Shane Everett. “We hope folks will come out and join us. It’s a band of Texas boys coming together with one heart, and it’s going to be fun.”
With its engaging live performance, David Crowder Band has captured the attention of such significant media as the New York Times, CNN, FOX News and others. After selling well over 200,000 copies of its sophomore release, Illuminate, David Crowder Band returns with A Collision, its first studio album in more than two years. The already critically acclaimed third national release includes more than 73 minutes over 18 tracks and features the first studio version of the concert favorite, “Here Is Our King,” which released to radio the first week in August.
In addition to other new, groundbreaking songs from the David Crowder Band, the album includes a cover of “Everybody Wants to Go to Heaven” by Loretta Lynn and the band’s first-ever take on bluegrass with “I Saw the Light” by Hank Williams, Sr. David Crowder Band found itself gathered around a microphone in the late Johnny Cash’s cabin outside of Nashville with the legendary Marty Stuart, recording “I Saw the Light,” featuring two of Williams’ verses, the one of Cash’s and one of Crowder’s. The rest of A Collision was recorded in Waco, TX in the barn behind Crowder’s house. Built in 1885 by then-Waco corner drugstore owner and alchemist Wade Morrison, the barn’s color resembles a Dr. Pepper can, whose origins are Mr. Morrison’s corner store. The album also envelopes eschatology, atomic energy, a hoedown and BBQ, a tsunami, Hiroshima and cancer, Dr Pepper, Arabic numeral 3 and 4, pain and rescue.
