THIS IS NOT A TEST, the latest from platinum selling artist TobyMac has debuted in the No. 4 spot on the Billboard Top 200, garnered No. 1 at the Christian Albums Chart and is No. 3 on the Digital Albums Chart.
Called a "masterful mix," " a consistent pleasure" and "worthy of repeat," the high placement comes after a shining street week for the artist who garnered coverage from ESPN Online, HLN's "Weekend Express," ABC Radio, Billboard, FOX News, Patheos and more.
The Billboard and American Music Award winner will take to the FOX & Friends outdoor concert stage this Wednesday, August 19. The performance is open to the public (more information here) and will air live on the No. 1 cable news morning show.
Next up for the multi-GRAMMY ® winner will be a headlining tour, bringing his dynamic live performance, including the popular Diverse City Band, to 36 markets this fall with Colton Dixon, Britt Nicole and introducing Hollyn.
The new album and a list of tour dates are available at TobyMac's website.
With more than 11 million units in career sales and a whopping six GRAMMY ® Awards, TobyMac's career continues on the fast track. His most recent studio album, EYE ON IT, garnered him the GRAMMY® Award for Best Contemporary Christian Music Album and the highest chart debut of his solo career landing at No. 1 on the Billboard 200. The project made TobyMac only the third artist ever to debut atop the Billboard 200 with a Christian music album. Recently receiving RIAA Gold Certification, EYE ON IT follows the success of his previous four solo projects, which have also received RIAA Gold Certifications and thus represents a first for an artist in the history of his label, Capitol Christian Music Group, with each one of his five studio solo projects achieving Gold certification. His live DVD, Alive & Transported, is RIAA Certified platinum and received a GRAMMY® award. His sixth solo studio project THIS IS NOT A TEST is now available.
