Chart-topping, seven-time Dove Award-nominated singer, songwriter and worship leader Todd Agnew recently visited the studios at the Cornerstone Television Network where he taped an intimate concert for the network's unique Living Room Concert Series. Agnew performed songs from his latest project, From Grace to Glory: The Music of Todd Agnew, which released on May 26, 2017 from Ardent Records.
This episode of the Living Room Concert Series is slated for broadcast on Saturday, Sept. 23, 2017, at 6:00 p.m. ET (airdate subject to change; see local listings). To view the episode live online, visit ctvn.org/watch-live.
"The folks at Cornerstone TV have a heart for ministry that is both welcoming and refreshing," says Agnew. "The intimate 'living room' setting made it feel like I was sharing with friends, rather than performing a concert."
A steady buzz has been surrounding Agnew's new project since the release of the first single, "Glory to Our Great Redeemer." Called a "spine tingling new hymn" by UK publication CrossRhythms, the single continues to gain traction at Christian Soft A/C and INSP radio formats this week, showing up as one of the Most Added songs on Billboard's Christian Soft A/C chart, and also in the Top Ten on two of Christian Music Weekly's (CMW) radio charts.
"Glory to Our Great Redeemer" is Number 8 on the CMW Worship chart and Number 10 on the CMW Inspirational Chart. Another song from the new project, "When Love Comes to Town" (Agnew's U2 Cover from the benefit album, In the Name of Love: Artists United for Africa) is Number 10 on the CMW Country Chart.
Agnew's studies at Dallas Theological Seminary (where he is nearing completion of his Master's degree) led him to pen "Glory to Our Great Redeemer." The song reflects Agnew's deepening spiritual, theological, and musical maturity through the process of getting married, embracing fatherhood, moving to Texas and delving deeper into the formal study of God's Word at seminary.
"The song talks about ransom, redemption, adoption and more," Agnew explains. "Our worship grows deeper as we understand more fully all God has done on our behalf."
"There are certain artists whose voice seems to cut through the clutter of our lives and stop us in our tracks," says James Riley, VP of Promotions, Shamrock Media Group. "Todd Agnew is one of those artists for me and I'm honored to help bring this new single, "Glory to Our Great Redeemer," to radio. From the opening moments of the song, you're engaged. I couldn't even respond to the email asking if I'd be interested in working it to radio for a while, as I was too busy hitting 'repeat.' It's so great to have Todd back in front of radio!"
