Critics and Fans are LOVING 

Grammy Winner Chris Tomlin's

 New Album

 "Burning Lights"

out this week!

Chris Tomlin is receiving all kinds of love from media including The New York Times, USA Today and Billboard.

 

"Over the last decade Mr. Tomlin has become one of the most notable figures in Christian rock… Even when he is not around, his songs sustain him. Burning Lights is ... heavy on broad, anthemic choruses; and straightforward praise. It is a skill ... to write music this free of ego. Mr. Tomlin has a modest voice, full of yearning, but it’s not his voice that’s important. It serves only as a contour for others to follow, with a modesty that invites people in."

— The New York Times

 

The album has claimed the No. 1 spot on the iTunes® Christian & Gospel Albums Chart and No. 2 position on the iTunes® Overall Albums Chart. SWEET!
