Thanks for hanging out with us today on the Afternoon Drive as we shared some great music and news about our favorite artists, all in the midst of playing some games!
Chris Tomlin announced his “Holy Roar” tour with friends Tauren Wells and Pat Barrett. Kicks off in Washington on March 3rd, 2019. “The ‘Holy Roar Tour’ is the experience and sound of worship,” says Chris. “It is so much more than just another night of songs. It’s an encounter with the presence of the living God. I pray it ignites a fire in the hearts of the people. I do believe this tour and message will have a lasting impact long after the curtain falls.”
Lauren Daigle made an appearance on the Ellen Show if you didn’t know! “So much love for these people… so many others not in this photo that worked hard all day to make @theellenshow happen! Love all you guys so much! Couldn’t do this without you,” Lauren shared to social media alongside a photo with her band after the performance.

Rascal Flatts member Jay DeMarcus has launched his own Christian music label, Red Street Records. The first two signees to the label were also announced today: new artist Lauren James, a worship leader at Lakewood Church in Houston, Texas, and iconic CCM group Avalon. Jay said: “Christian music was such a huge foundation for me, even as a kid growing up. Before there was ever a Rascal Flatts, I started out in Christian music with East to West, and I’ve always felt like every time I would come back into the Christian music genre and produce records, I always felt like I was coming back home.”
