Dove Award-winning Difference Media quartet Canton Junction is set to hit the road in October and November for the “Get Your Praise On” Fall Tour. The six-city outing will include a pre-show “Eat & Greet” Tailgate Party with the group, and each date will feature a special guest, including ACM Award-winner Gordon Mote, GRAMMY-nominated vocal group The Martins, acclaimed husband/wife duo Aaron & Amanda Crabb, and GRAMMY-nominated singer/songwriter Ricardo Sanchez.
Kicking-off October 20 in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, the “Get Your Praise On” Fall Tour is slated to hit Columbus, Ohio; Newburgh, Indiana; Poplar Bluff, Missouri; and Tulsa, Oklahoma, before concluding November 5 in Amarillo, Texas. All concerts are free with a love offering benefiting John Hagee Ministries’ Sanctuary of Hope, a refuge for unwed mothers and orphaned children.
Tenor singer Matt Hagee shares, “It’s going to be a great time of Gospel music in the presence of the Lord. The concert is absolutely free—our purpose is to share with audiences our vision of the Sanctuary of Hope that Pastor John Hagee is building in San Antonio, Texas, with an opportunity to sow seed into the same.”
Performing selections from their award-winning recordings Canton Junction and Every Hallelujah, Matt Hagee, Tim Duncan and Casey Rivers will be joined onstage each night by various guest vocalists.
With individual resumes including GRAMMY Award nominations, multiple GMA Dove Awards, Singing News Fan Awards and finalist honors on "Nashville Star," Canton Junction effortlessly blends traditional and contemporary sounds for a cutting-edge style all its own.

Last year’s Every Hallelujah debuted at #1 on Nielsen SoundScan’s Southern Gospel Overall Chart and features the single “Weep No More,” from the hit box office film Four Blood Moons.
