In 2013, Grammy-winning singer/songwriter Chris Tomlin became only the fourth CCM artist ever to debut an album at number one on the Billboard 200 chart. Widely known and respected in the Christian music world, he'd had other triumphs on the pop charts, but Burning Lights was a massive release for both him and his label, Six Steps Records. But for all of his successes, Tomlin has remained humble in his dedication to creating meaningful worship music with a driving, modern rock spirit. Produced by longtime friend and collaborator Ed Cash, his 2014 follow-up, Love Ran Red, picks up where Burning Lights left off, delivering 12 more anthemic, guitar-driven songs of praise with huge uplifting choruses and inviting hooks that should please existing fans and attract new ones.
