One of Christian music's most well-known artists, Chris Tomlin returns with the all new album Love Ran Red featuring the hit Waterfall. Deluxe Edition includes four bonus tracks.
With a list of No. 1 Christian radio singles, a GRAMMY Award, two Billboard Music Awards, 19 Dove Awards, one platinum and four gold albums to his credit, Chris Tomlin is among the most well-known and influential artists in contemporary Christian music, referred to by Time Magazine as most likely the most often sung artist anywhere. Tomlin continues to tour many dates every year and plays regularly at Passion Conferences in the United States and worldwide. Along with Pastor and Communicator Louie Giglio, Tomlin serves at Passion City Church in Atlanta, GA.
One of the leading artists and activists within contemporary Christian music, Chris Tomlin is a successful singer and songwriter whose 2004 album Arriving has sold over 500,000 copies, and whose compositions "Holy Is the Lord" and "How Great Is Our God" are among the most popular contemporary songs in the world's churches, being sung by millions of Christians at worship services every week. Born in Grand Saline, Texas in 1972, Tomlin grew up listening to country music and learned to play guitar from his father (Tomlin has cited Willie Nelson's Stardust as a key influence). At the age of nine, Tomlin accepted Jesus Christ as his savior, and at 14 wrote his first song of praise.
Tomlin enrolled at Texas A&M in the early '90s to study medicine, but he became active in a campus worship and Bible study group led by an ambitious young pastor named Louie Giglio. As it grew, Tomlin became increasingly active with the group, and he eventually became a worship leader as well as performing his own songs at meetings. As Giglio's ministry evolved into Passion, a nationwide organization for young Christians on college campuses, Giglio started a record company, Six Steps Records, to record youth-oriented Christian artists. Tomlin, whose songs had become mainstays at Passion gatherings, became one of Sixsteps' first signings, and The Noise We Make, released in 2001, was Tomlin's first album.
In 2002, Tomlin moved to Austin, Texas, and became a pastor at Austin's Stone Community Church, where he helped guide a congregation of 1,500. As Tomlin's songs and recordings found a wider audience, he was nominated for two Grammy Awards for his 2006 album See the Morning (which rose to number one on Billboard's Christian albums chart and number 15 on the overall Top 200), but the songwriter continued to emphasize that his mission was more important than his own music. Tomlin's fifth studio album, 2008's Hello Love, was certified gold. It was followed in 2009 by the holiday offering Glory in the Highest: Christmas Songs of Worship, in 2010 by And If Our God Is for Us..., in 2013 by Burning Lights and 2014 Love Ran Red.
