Dove Award winning recording artist and speaker Cheri Keaggy has been busy touring throughout the U.S. to promote her current CD, No Longer My Own, which was released on her Psalm 91 record label and distributed through Elevate Entertainment. The beloved singer/songwriter took time out of her busy schedule to meet with media and industry leaders during the National Religious Broadcasters Proclaim 16 International Christian Media Convention to discuss her music and ministry. The annual convention was held Feb. 23-26 at the Gaylord Opryland Resort and Convention Center in Nashville.
Keaggy was kept busy during the 4-day event, being interviewed by such influential outlets as Bill Martinez Live!, World Christian Broadcasting, MRG Media, TBN Nashville, On Faith’s Edge, The Shaun Tabbat Show, Bible News Radio, New Life FM, The Gospel Herald, and Faith Flix, among others.
“NRB was a great chance to share what God has been teaching me lately,” says Keaggy. “Any opportunity to proclaim Christ’s love is time well spent. Please pray for me as I prepare to do just that on the road this Spring.”
Donning the producer’s hat for the project, Keaggy employed the talents of some of Nashville’s top musicians, skillfully steering the project’s instrumentation and her own trademark velvety vocals toward the pop and gospel genres. The result is a cohesive collection of Christ-focused songs that exude a sense of deep felt conviction and, ultimately, surrender.
“My prayer is that all-too-busy believers will rediscover the simple joy of being with Jesus, sitting with Him, delighting in Him. After an incredible season of ministry that left me suffering from burn-out, I knew I had to guard that, to remember my First Love. And it has humbled me, in a good way. I don’t mind being broken as long as I get a good song out of it,” she quips. “‘Be My Sabbath’ might contain the most angst-ridden lyrics I’ve written to date, but it’s real; it’s authentic and it points to God, my Source, my Sabbath.”
Keaggy admits to being both humbled and excited by the number of doors that opened for ministry as a direct result of her 2012 release, So I Can Tell. With a quiver full of new songs burning in her soul, Keaggy prays 2015’s No Longer My Own will continue to inspire and embolden fellow saints to live more fearlessly for Christ.
