Jason Crabb, Grammy Award Winner and 21 time GMA Dove Award winner, kicked off his 2014 Love Is Stronger tour with a little help from his friends. Well, make that 20,000 friends! Crabb recently began his tour with a stop in Knoxville, TN at Thompson-Boling Arena as part of Winterfest weekend. Appearing alongside Duck Dynasty's Luke and Sadie Robertson and the band Planetshakers, Jason's soaring vocals, signature guitar skills and his amazing band filled the arena and had the crowd of over 20,000 teenagers on their feet with hands in the air!
The theme of the night was one that Jason is very familiar with - camo! In honor of the Robertson appearance attendees were asked to wear camo and Jason was happy to ablige! "Anyone who knows me, knows I LOVE to hunt," said Crabb. "So when they asked for everyone to wear camo, I was in!" Jason surprised John Luke Robertson and his sister Sadie Robertson with a presentation of two very special "Duck-Crabb Calls" as the audience roared with laughter and applause!
From Knoxville, Jason made the trek back home immediately to Nashville, TN to make a special appearance during the WinterJam Tour Spectacular at Bridgestone arena in Nashville. Jason surprised the audience as he stepped into the middle of the massive arena to introduce his friends, NewSong. Crabb joined an impressive line-up of surprise guests including Carrie Underwood & Mike Fisher and Francesca Battistelli. The evening featured performances from Tenth Avenue North, Thousand Foot Krutch, Plumb, Colton Dixon, Lecrae and NewSong.
Along with the new tour, Jason recently partnered with relief organization Feed the Children. Around the world, Feed The Children provides nourishing meals every school day to more than 350,000 children. In 2013, the organization distributed over $129 million in food, medicine, and other essentials to children in 23 countries. The international programs, including child sponsorships, meet the immediate needs of children while also addressing the root causes of poverty through education and livelihood development.
Jason recently made a voyage to Honduras, learning first-hand how the ministry of Feed the Children works in the lives of those it touches. "I sponsor a boy named Christian, and I got to meet him and his family for the first time" Jason shared. "It really was amazing to me to see the faces of these children, who have so little, full of smiles and laughter. I am proud to partner with Feed the Children to bring medical supplies, food and neccessities to them."
Jason's latest single, "Love Is Stronger," is making an impact on listeners as he criss-crosses the nation encouraging audiences with songs of hope and love. MUSE concerts - a leader in tour promotion - will provide tour support on select dates during the Love Is Stronger tour. All tour information is available at www.JasonCrabb.com.
