As critics praise GRAMMY® winner Chris Tomlin's Love Ran Red as "Incredibly Rich," (New Release Tuesday) "Flawless" and "Infectious" (Church Mag), and Worship Leader magazine calls him "the worship leader of the century," the multi-platinum selling songwriter is celebrating the release of his tenth album as his radio single "Jesus Loves Me" hits top 10 on both the National Christian Audience and AC Indicator charts.

Crisscrossing the country in support of the album, Tomlin has hit more than two cities a day on a multi-city promo blitz to radio stations in Houston, Dallas, Washington D.C., St. Louis, Baltimore and Atlanta, as well as pre-taped appearances on The Fox News Channel's hit morning show Fox and Friends (airs November 1st), a SIRIUS XM The Message special, a Billboard Studio Performance, Keep the Faith Radio, Fox News Radio and more.

Additionally, the 2014 BMI and GMA Dove Award-winning Songwriter of the Year has also announced the spring leg of his "Love Ran Red Tour," which will launch on February 18, 2015 in San Juan, Puerto Rico. On the heels of Tomlin's participation in the annual Passion 2015 events in Atlanta and Houston, the tour, also featuring Ireland's Rend Collective and Tenth Avenue North, will hit 33 US cities.

About Chris Tomlin
With nine albums, 12 No. 1 radio singles, a GRAMMY® Award and eight additional nominations, three Billboard Music Awards, 21 Dove Awards, a platinum and four gold albums to his credit, Chris Tomlin is among the most well-known and influential artists in contemporary Christian music. Referred to by Time magazine as "most likely the most often sung artist anywhere," Tomlin also has 15 of the Top 100 CCLI songs, with 4 of them being in the top 10. BMI and GMA Dove Awards' 2014 Songwriter of the Year, Tomlin's "How Great Is Our God" was his first No. 1 on the CCLI Top 25, moving to No. 1 after becoming one of the fasting rising modern day hymns in CCLI chart history. In addition to having sold more than 5.3 million albums and over 8 million digital tracks, Tomlin made history as his single "Jesus Messiah" (Hello Love) garnered 97 adds at radio its first week and skyrocketed to No. 1, making it the biggest ever add date in Christian radio history. In the midst of his record breaking success, and continuing his role as worship leader at Passion City Church in Atlanta, GA, Tomlin continues touring and leading at Passion Conference gatherings across the US and worldwide. Burning Lights debuted at No. 1 atop the Billboard 200 in January 2013, making history as only the fourth Christian music album to do so, and his tenth recording, Love Ran Red is available now.
