Jason Crabbs New CD Out With Help From Rascal Flatts Jay DeMarcus

A couple years ago, Jason Crabb played at the Schoor Family Firehouse Stage.  I don’t think most of us in attendance had any idea what a privilege it was that he was there.  I didn’t realize it myself until later. He was so humble and personal.  Sharing his story of faith and knockin your socks off with his singing.

I knew he had been a part of the Christian music scene for years with the Crabb Family. He and his family had played at the Grand Ole Opry several times. He decided to give it a go in Country music as a solo artist and was making the radio rounds.  He happened to be in town and gave a show along with Steve Azar for some contest winners from the Hawk. He was promoting his song “Somebody Like Me.”  It’s still one of my favorite country songs.

Well Christian music’s reigning Artist and Male Vocalist of the Year from the Grammys, has teamed up with Rascal Flatts member Jay DeMarcus for his next album.  His album, Love is Stronger, features a single of the same name, which Crabb revealed to be very personal to him and his family. “It took me right to my wife,” said Crabb, whose wife, Shellye, was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis. “She couldn’t barely even walk across the floor or get up out of bed.”

Shellye continued to care for their children through excruciating pain, until she sought a second opinion from another doctor, who began to treat her for Lyme disease. “She started getting better and, man, it was just amazing,” said Crabb. “And that’s what the song says.”

You can get Crabb’s second solo release, Love is Stronger, out in stores now . Click here to get your copy.  If you have a chance to see him in concert, it’s one that you won’t forget.  If your in Nashville, check to see if he or his family is playing at the Opry.  It’s worth the trip.
