PledgeMusic Preorder Reaches 147% Of Goal, Benefits A Rocha USA
McCracken Launches Steadfast Podcast Sept. 6; RELEVANT Podcast Features McCracken Today
Singer, worship leader, record producer and modern-day hymn writer Sandra McCracken self-released her 12th independent album, Steadfast Live, amidst 5-star acclaim on Friday. The 17-track CD / DVD featuring special guests All Sons & Daughters and Liz Vice was recorded live with McCracken’s band this spring at Nashville’s Art House and is available now at iTunes, Amazon.com and other retailers around the globe.
Produced by McCracken, directed by Zach Prichard (Brad Paisley / National Geographic / ESPN) and including over 70 minutes of content, the Steadfast Live album and concert documentary includes dynamic musical arrangements of favorites from McCracken’s Psalms (2015) and God’s Highway(2016) recordings alongside five new songs and hymns, stories behind the songs and scripture readings.
First revealing the new music, behind-the-scenes content and more to all those that participated with her in the journey to the new album through her PledgeMusic campaign, McCracken reached 147% of her goal as the campaign also benefitted A Rocha USA, a faith-based conservation organization in Nashville and in 20 countries around the world.
Along with the invitation to experience the steadfast love of God through Steadfast Live’s songs of comfort and hope, Sandra expands these offerings with her Steadfast with Sandra McCracken podcast that is set to launch Sept. 6 in partnership with Harbor Media. A preview episode can be listened to at https://itunes.apple.com/us/
“I’ll be sitting down with friends, writers, artists and people that I admire,” shares McCracken regarding her podcast. “We’ll have conversations about how God has met us in dark times; how we’ve experienced him as a God of comfort.”
In addition to her own podcast, McCracken is featured on today’s episode of the RELEVANT Podcast, which receives hundreds of thousands of weekly listeners. RELEVANT Magazine also premiered the title track video from the project while Simple Grace magazine premiered “Continuously” on its Facebook page and CCM Magazine lauds in its 5-star review, “Steadfast Live is an intimate and inspired live recording…that draws the listener in for a moving set of theologically rich and melodically warm worship songs.” AnglicanPastor.com adds, “Sandra has succeeded in giving us an album that is prayerful and inspiring, sacred and singable, beautiful and thoughtful.”
“Come join me in seeing these songs travel out far and wide, one story joining another as we sing ourselves forward throughout the seasons of our lives,” implores McCracken. “This is gospel music and good news for everybody.”
