In 1995, the Christian Music Industry was changed forever when KAMB Artist Chris Tomlin joined the scene. While he is famously known for classic songs sung every Sunday in churches across the globe, Chris has also become a spokesperson for the Christian Contemporary Worship Movement. He partners with Campassionart organization and leads worship locally at Passion City Church in Atlanta.
You don’t have to dig very deep to find the country roots in KAMB Artist Christ Tomlin. He grew up playing Willie Nelson, Merle Haggard and Alabama. While his father saw Chris’s guitar playing as a hobby, God had bigger plans for him. He independently released his first few singles “Inside Your Love” (1995), “Authentic” and “Too Much Free Time” (1998). In 2000, Chris signed on with newly founded sixstepsrecords and began releasing nationally.
It Takes Everyone
KAMB Artist Chris Tomlin is also a huge fan of collaborating with other artists. He recently released “Chris Tomlin & Friends” and has a lot to say about the work that he does with artists like Ed Cash (We the Kingdom). When he wrote “How Great Is Our God” based on Psalm 104, Ed said “This ‘How Great is Our God’ song, I think it’s pretty good, but it’s not finished.” Ed grabbed a guitar and finished the song by adding the bridge. Chris remembers that moment “when you open up and let somebody else sneak in, it just makes it better. So that’s when we knew it was taking it to another level.”
Ministry Close to Home
While he’s not busy collaborating with other artists, leading worship in his church or writing songs that draw thousands into worship, you can find him relaxing on 25 acres outside Franklin, Tennessee with his wife and three daughters. He and his wife also work together in the ministry “Angel Armies” that they founded in 2019. This ministry helps address the issues that vulnerable youth in our nation face each and everyday.
We here at KAMB have certainly been blessed by Chris Tomlin and the way that the Lord has used him in so many ways within so many ministries. You can be blessed as well!
