It was announced earlier this week that singer/songwriter and worship leader Pat Barrett will release his solo full-length, self-titled debut on July 20. During an album presentation held yesterday for the upcoming project, GRAMMY Award winner Chris Tomlin surprised Barrett with a plaque announcing the RIAA Platinum certification for the chart-topping single "Good Good Father." The song, which was co-written by Barrett, has been performed by numerous artists yet it was Tomlin's recording that took the song to No. 1 at radio.
Pat Barrett is the flagship artist on Tomlin's imprint record label, Bowyer & Bow, in partnership with Capitol CMG. His upcoming album is the follow-up to his self-titled EP that released in April. The debut single, "The Way (New Horizon)," continues to climb at radio and is Top 20 of the National Christian Audience chart.
Barrett will head out on Tomlin's "Good Good Father" Tour in Canada this fall, which follows his spring run performing on the "Worship Night in America" Tour.
