JASON CRABB HONORED WITH STREET NAME IN HIS HOMETOWN
NEW STUDIO ALBUM, WHATEVER THE ROAD, RELEASING SEPTEMBER 18
NASHVILLE, TENN. – July 23, 2015 - GRAMMY® winner and 21-time Dove Award winning artist Jason Crabb was recently honored with a street name, “Jason Crabb Drive,” in his hometown of Beaver Dam, KY. This past weekend during a hometown show at the new, state-of-the-art Beaver Dam Amphitheater, the city surprised and honored Crabb with the street sign for the road entering the Amphitheater.
”We were thrilled to have Jason come home for this concert,” shared Mayor Paul Sandefur. “We were even more thrilled to show him how proud we are of him and his work by naming the street into Beaver Dam's new amphitheater after Jason, Jason Crabb Drive!" Sandefur, along with City Commissioners Charles Patton, Kevin Davis and Sandy Robinson, presented him with the honor.
Jason Crabb was performing in his hometown for the first time since he had laid his beloved grandmother to rest earlier this year so it was an emotional homecoming. “I can't even begin to tell you how shocked and humbled I am,” shared Crabb with his fans on Facebook. “I wish my Grandma and Grandfather could be here. I'm so proud to be from Beaver Dam. I can't believe this!”
The Beaver Dam Amphitheater opened this past fall and has already hosted to artists such as Merle Haggard, Newsboys, Aaron Tippin and more. The venue will host upcoming shows from Third Day in August and the Blue Moon Bluegrass Music Festival in October.
This honor precedes Crabb’s upcoming new studio album, Whatever The Road, which releases on September 18th as his first album with new label home Reunion Records, a division of Provident Label Group/Sony Music. Working with producers Jason Ingram (Chris Tomlin, Tenth Avenue North, Kari Jobe), and Paul Mabury (Hillsong, Lauren Daigle, One Sonic Society), Crabb takes a bold new step forward, not just lyrically but stylistically, and has finely honed a collection of anthems for the church that have sophisticated pop sensibilities as well as deep, substantive lyrics.
“I’ve never wanted to be pigeon-holed,” states Crabb of this new musical venture. “I just wanted to make music. I finally found that if you're part of the creative process of the song, then it becomes you. With this record, I feel like it's a little more of who I am than what I’ve been. It’s where I want to be and it's wonderful.”
Fans can now pre-order the upcoming release through July 31 and receive a three-song sampler along with three new songs. Click here to pre-order Whatever The Road.
