Crowder's newest recording, American Prodigal, has garnered a GRAMMY nomination for Best Contemporary Christian Music Album. The recognition marks the third consecutive GRAMMY nod for Crowder following honors from his first solo album, Neon Steeple. The Recording Academy will present the 59th GRAMMY Awards on Sunday, Feb. 12, 2017, live from Staples Center in Los Angeles and broadcast on the CBS Television Network from 8–11:30 pm ET/5–8:30 pm PT.
"Being in such great company is an honor," shares Crowder. "I love this album and couldn't be more excited to have it acknowledged and affirmed by fellow folk."
American Prodigal (Sept. 23 2016) hit No. 1 on the Christian & Gospel Albums Chart, No. 3 on the Digital Albums Chart, No. 5 on the Top Albums Billboard Chart and No. 12 on the Top 200 Billboard Chart. In support of his newest release, Crowder kicked off the "American Prodigal Tour" in the fall featuring Tedashii and The New Respects, followed by a Winter Jam west coast tour and Crowder serving as headliner on the K-LOVE Christmas Tour. Not slowing down, you’ll find him continuing to share these songs as headliner of Winter Jam 2017 in the new year. The album holds the top 10 radio hit “My Victory." Last month, Crowder returned to the Grand Ole Opry stage with performances of “Run Devil Run” and “All We Sinners,” both found on American Prodigal.
