Nashville, Tenn. (Dec. 28, 2016 ) – Rare Country is exclusively premiering Crowder’s performance of “Run Devil Run” from the Grand Ole Opry. “All We Sinners,” also found on his latest GRAMMY® nominated album American Prodigal, was among the songs included in his set at Nashville’s iconic Ryman Auditorium.
“The Grand Ole Opry is a sacred thing,” shared the 3X GRAMMY® nominee exclusively with Rare Country. “The sounds and words still echo. To join into that great chorus is thrilling and humbling. What I love most about so much of the music that has been part of the history of the Opry is that the struggle between light and dark was so visible. It is the exact thing that inspired the song ‘Run Devil Run.’ The struggle is real. Thank God for the Light.”
In the new year, Crowder will embark as the headliner for the 2017 nationwide Winter Jam Tour. For the most up to date tour stops, click here.
