Centricity Music artist Lauren Daigle, will embark on her first headline tour titled "A Night with Lauren Daigle," with special guest Chris McClarney, in support of her recently released How Can It Be Deluxe Edition. The tour, sponsored by CURE International, is scheduled from October 14-30, beginning in Memphis, Tennessee. Daigle, who is currently opening on the Hillsong UNITED Empires tour, has been on a whirlwind year since her debut award-winning album, How Can It Be, was released.
Says Daigle, "I am so pumped to share that I will be headlining my very first tour in the fall! My deepest desire for these nights is that God would shake the foundation of what we know of Him, and expand our revelation of who He is. I want people to feel like they can drink from the water of Life, rest in His presence, and leave refueled and empowered to fulfill all that He has in store. She continues, "I'm partnering with CURE International because of my love for the medical field and missions. I'm also elated to announce that Chris McClarney will be joining me for the evening."
Daigle received her first GRAMMY nomination earlier this year for "Best Contemporary Christian Music Album" at the 58th GRAMMY Awards; and took home the 2016 Billboard Music Award for "Top Christian Album." She has won three Dove Awards (nominated for four) -- "New Artist of the Year," "Song of the Year" ("How Can It Be") and "Pop Contemporary Album of the Year," and was awarded this year's K-LOVE Fan Awards for "Artist of the Year" and "Female Artist of the Year"; in addition to the 2015 K-LOVE Fan Award for "Worship Song of the Year" ("How Can It Be").
Daigle has steadily positioned herself at the top of the charts since her debut full-length album release. Her singles "How Can It Be" and "First" both reached #1 on the iTunes Christian Songs Chart and #1 on the Christian Digital Tracks Chart, with "First" also reaching #1 on the NCA radio chart. "Trust in You," which earned Daigle her first No. 1 single spot on Billboard's Hot Christian Songs chart in March 2016, continues to hold its top spot after 13 consecutive weeks, while also remaining in the #1 position on the NCA radio chart for nine consecutive weeks. The song currently holds the #1 position on the iTunes Christian Songs Chart and the Christian Digital Tracks Chart.
How Can It Be has logged more than five weeks at #1 on Billboard's Top Christian Albums chart, and premiered in the Top 30 on the Billboard 200. How Can It Be also reached #1 on the iTunes Christian Gospel Top Albums Chart with more than 320,500 album sales and 813,000 track sales, positioning her as the fastest-selling new artist in Contemporary Christian music in the past decade. Daigle has had over 76 million YouTube and Vevo views, with approximately 250,000 subscribers. For "How Can It Be" alone, she has had more than 15 million views.
Chris McClarney's powerful anthem "Your Love Never Fails" has become one of the most popular songs in America's churches as reported in the TOP 25 of CCLI, and is a #1 song on the Billboard Christian chart. Chris recently partnered with Jesus Culture music recording his debut live album "Everything and Nothing Less."
