Join the Irish writer of "In Christ Alone" Live in Concert!
Heralded as modern hymn writers, Keith and Kristyn Getty are known for writing and performing songs that transcend traditional church boundaries, uniting the voices of people all over the world. With music that is equally at home in urban strip-mall chapels and the ancient stonewalled Canterbury Cathedral and from Nashville's legendary Ryman Auditorium to London's Royal Albert Hall, they occupy a different space in the Christian music community.
The Hymns for the Christian Life Tour will feature the Gettys with a full band and will take the Gettys across the country. The tour will feature familiar songs from Keith and Kristyn’s previous albums such as, “In Christ Alone,” “The Power of the Cross,” “Christ Is Risen, He Is Risen Indeed.” It will also spotlight a new song that was co-written by the couple and their producer Ed Cash for the Getty’s new upcoming album, Keith & Kristyn Getty: Live From The Gospel Coalition.
“Kristyn and I are looking forward to visiting so many cities this fall; some of them familiar places and some new areas where we haven’t toured before,” says Keith Getty. “We’re excited to be engaging with hundreds of churches and venues across the country to celebrate the message of Christ, and connect with our fans that have been so supportive to us throughout the years.”
The tour is named after The Gettys’ critically acclaimed album, Hymns for the Christian Life that features Grammy-award winning artists, Alison Krauss and Ricky Skaggs, and the project received a Dove nomination last week for Inspirational Album of the Year. With the success of the album and the duo’s full concert production, this year’s tour should continue the successful string of numerous sell-out dates that has happened over the years. The Gettys decided to stretch their fall tour over six weeks this year and postponed their annual Joy - An Irish Christmas concert tour due to Kristyn being pregnant with their second child. The couple is already the proud parents of 2-year-old Eliza Joy, with their second child due December 2013.
The Gettys will also recently released "Keith & Kristyn Getty: Live From The Gospel Coalition" on September 10th. This is the first live album for Keith and Kristyn, which was recorded at The Gospel Coalition in Orlando, FL this past spring. The project features thirteen songs that were recorded at several different performances during the 5-day conference. It includes many of the Getty’s most popular hymns and a few of their favorite traditional hymns as well.
