Black River Christian singer/songwriter, Hannah Kerr, joins the GRAMMY nominated band, Building 429, on its "Christmas in the Round Tour," which also features Matt Hammitt and Jonny Diaz. It will be an intimate evening of worship, stories and holiday classics that is based on Nashville's beloved tradition of "musicians in the round." The tour launches Dec. 9 in Massachusetts and concludes on the 17th in Fla., and is sponsored by Food For The Hungry.
At the same time, Kerr's first holiday single, "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas," is having an impact at Christian radio with adds that include three major radio networks, K-LOVE, Air1 and His Radio. The song was selected by Kerr's fans and the talented artist added a Jazz flare to her rendition that displays her musical passions.
"I'm so excited for this upcoming tour with Building 429, Jonny Diaz and Matt Hammitt. These guys are some of the best people in Christian music and I'm blessed to be up there singing with them as such a new artist," said Kerr. "I'm performing my new Christmas single 'Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas' on the tour and I can't wait for people to hear this jazz version live! Jazz is one of my favorite styles of music and I'm thankful that these rock stars decided to make space for a jazz song in the tour set list."
Fresh off the road opening for Casting Crown's "The Very Next Thing Tour," 2017 will prove to be a busy one for Kerr with her single, "Radiate," going for adds at radio on Jan. 27, and it's already receiving early airplay from WAY-FM radio network. The song was co-written by Kerr and her brother, Josh, who has had two No. 1 country hits with the GRAMMY nominated Kelsea Ballerini, along with Jordan Reynolds. The song is from Kerr's first full album, Overflow, which features 10 other tunes, seven of which were co-written by Hannah Kerr. Physical copies of the album will be releasing Spring 2017, with the digital version of the album available now online.
