Michael W. Smith: Second Decade

Celebrating 20 years in Christian music, Grammy and Dove award-winning artist and composer Michael W. Smith, prepares for the release of The Second Decade 1993 – 2003. The project celebrates his unparalleled career by featuring 13 hits from the past 10 years and two new songs, which offer a sneak peek at his highly anticipated 2004 studio album.
Smith’s son Ryan (19) teamed up with his father on “Signs,” one of the record’s new songs and its first radio single. This occasion marks the first time the two have collaborated on a musical piece. “Ryan loves film and directing,” notes Smith. “He’s extremely artistic, but we’d never written songs together before. I wrote this melody and Ryan ran with it. I’m really proud of him.”
A multi-phase marketing campaign, including significant national radio, media and retail promotions will support the launch of Smith’s 17th audio project on Reunion Records. The 15-song CD includes the following well-known hits:
“Cry for Love,” “Straight to the Heart,” “I’ll Lead You Home,” “Missing Person,” “Love Me Good,” “Live the Life,”
“Never Been Unloved,” “This Is Your Time,” “Freedom,” “Above All” (live version), “Prince of Peace” (live version), “Friends 2003,” “Breakdown” and new songs, “Raging Sea” and “Signs.” (Song titles and sequence subject to change)
Smith is currently featured on the July cover of Christian Reader magazine with friend Kirk Franklin and will grace upcoming covers of CCM Magazine, Christian Music Planet, KLTY Now, Louisville Now and others. In constant demand for live performances worldwide, Smith recently wrapped a two-week European tour seeing more than 100,000 in attendance. He returned to the states to headline multiple festivals and, on Oct. 16, will kick off his 19-date “Celebration Tour” with special guest MercyMe, in Milwaukee, Wis.
With his most recent albums, Worship and Worship Again, selling more than two million copies collectively and the Worship DVD receiving RIAA (Recording Industry Association of America) platinum certification, Smith is undoubtedly one of the highest and most consistent selling artists in Christian music.
