As Crowder naturally entertained members of the media backstage at the K-LOVE Fan Awards, we asked the CCM singer/songwriter when to expect new music. "That’s what I’m asking myself every day," he laughed.
Crowder continued, "September the 23rd is gonna be the new record, and I don’t know if I’m supposed to say this out loud, but it’s going to be called American Prodigal, and it’s going to be amazing! I cannot even describe to you how excited I am for it!
And just hours ago, team Crowder released an epic teaser trailer for the album, featuring the shell of a wooden cabin completely engulfed in flames. Stay tuned for more details!
