Dove Award-nominated recording artist, songwriter, filmmaker, and award-winning author Andrew Peterson prepares for his second annual Resurrection Letters Tour, with most tour dates booked and tickets going fast (available here). Featuring indie artist Taylor Leonhardt and special guest Skye Peterson, the tour runs April 5 through May 11.

The tour will reflect a wide span of Peterson's music catalogue, with special focus on his critically acclaimed albums Resurrection Letters: Prologue, Volume 1 and Volume 2. The record trilogy poignantly explores the event and surrounding themes of Christ's resurrection, along with its glorious implications for our lives today. Leading into the Easter season, Peterson notes this tour-set as a favorite of his career:

"This project took so long to finish, it's immensely gratifying to finally be able to sing these songs on the road. To go from celebrating Christ's Incarnation on the Behold the Lamb of God tour to then rejoicing in his Resurrection a few months later--while spring washes over the world again--is a great reminder of the story he's unfolding for us. There's nothing I'd rather sing about."

Ten years following Volume 2's release, Prologue and Volume 1 (all produced by Ben Shive) came out last year, debuting in the Top 5 of Billboard's Americana Chart and receiving praise from listeners:

"...a lovingly crafted masterpiece and a new Easter tradition in the making." (CCM Magazine)

"Listening to both volumes of Resurrection Letters is to listen to a master at the height of his craft, diving into the most important and epic rescue story ever told." (Jesusfreakhideout)

The songs have made a powerful impact on audiences across the globe, with the liturgically-inspired track "Is He Worthy?" heralded as "a heavenly glimpse of Jesus's triumph in one of the best written worship ballads [last] year." (Hallels). Its one-shot music video has received over 1.2 million views, and the song was recently covered by Grammy-winning CCM artist Chris Tomlin on his latest album.

"The first time I heard ["Is He Worthy?"], I knew it was a game changer for the church," Tomlin said.

In addition to the tour, Peterson is gearing up to perform and lead workshops at all seven of the Great Homeschool Conventions this year. He's also preparing for the release of a nonfiction book in the fall and is recording music for a special project coming the latter half of the year.
