Music News: “PROMISED LAND” FROM 7-TIME GRAMMY WINNER TOBYMAC OUT TODAY
7-TIME GRAMMY WINNER TOBYMAC DEBUTS NEW SINGLE AND
MUSIC VIDEO EXCLUSIVELY ON FACEBOOK IN HONOR OF GRANDDAD,
FOR “PROMISED LAND”
Nashville, TN… (September 17, 2021) – Seven-Time GRAMMY® winner TobyMac has released his brand new single, “Promised Land.” Written by TobyMac and Adam Agee, the track is the follow up to his No. 1 hit “Help Is On The Way (Maybe Midnight),” and is available across all DSPs and impacting Christian radio now.
“I think if we’re honest, each of us have wondered, where is the promised land?,” he remarks. “…Where’s the blessing for me and my family that I thought would come my way on this earth when I chose to follow the King of Kings?”
In support of the single, the multi-platinum artist simultaneously exclusively premiered the music video on Facebook in honor of his Granddad, a miner in West Virginia, where TobyMac’s own father grew up in a mining camp. “It was a hard life,” he says. “A life where I imagine they must have really wondered where in the world is my promised land?”
Ultimately, he says of the song, “The lyics land where I want my life to land: that the promised land is no land at all, but a relationship with the King that loves us deeply. It turns from where’s my promised land, to you’re my promised land. Maybe the promised land we’re looking for is no place at all, but a person named Jesus.”
This is the second single TobyMac has released this year, following the breakout hit “Help Is On the Way (Maybe Midnight)” which went #1 on five charts including the Billboard Christian Audience chart, and held on to #1 at Hot AC for 13 consecutive weeks.
TobyMac kicks off the fall leg of Hits Deep tour in Moline, IL on October 2nd. Tickets go on sale September 23rd and can be found at https://tobymac.com/tour.
