Collins Also Garnering Video Airplay At Gospel Music Channel
Nashville, TN (November 13, 2008) -Christian pop artist, Curt Collins, has been enjoying great chart success with his latest release, “Jesus Paid It All.” The current single is currently #18 on Radio & Record’s and #25 on Christian Radio Weekly’s Inspirational charts. The previous single, “Another Day,” is the title track from Collin’s latest CD and peaked at #14 on the R&R chart and #7 on the CRW chart.
The hymn, “Jesus Paid It All,” gets new arrangement from Collins and his producer, Jamie Slocum and it was important for Collins to add it to the line up of his new album.
“We did ‘Jesus Paid It All’ in church, and I saw my wife raising her hands with tears in her eyes, and I just thought, ‘We’ve got to do that song, cause it’s so good.’ The old hymns don’t need to be forgotten.”
Collin’s video for “Another Day” is now in rotation on the Gospel Music Channel. It’s being aired on Wake Up Call, 7:00 – 9:00 am Eastern Time and throughout the day on It’s All Gospel. The video was directed by Glenn Sweitzer and was shot at Starstruck and downtown Nashville, TN. Collin’s two teenage sons were filmed as extras in the video.
Collins began his music career with a degree in music education that led him to become a public school band director for four years before detouring on a financial career. But the love of music and the pull of his music ministry led to a full-time commitment for this inspiring singer/songwriter. Collins sophomore self-titled CD led to a chart success single, “He Will Pull You,” that became one of the Top 100 songs chosen by CRW for 2007. The project also received rave reviews from such high-profile media as Living With Teenagers, Plugged In magazine, Christian Retailing, Worship Leader magazine, etc. Collin’s first project, Don’t Look Back Now was a Christian/Country effort with the single, “Backyard Hero,” reaching #8 on the Power Source chart.
