Last year, worship leader and songwriter Cody Carnes earned two GRAMMY Award nominations, his first career nominations, one for his studio album, Run To The Father, and also for Best Contemporary Christian Music Performance/Song for "The Blessing (Live)." Today he is releasing the deluxe edition of this GRAMMY nominated album, which features nine additional tracks recorded live in various settings such as Passion 2020, Worship Together 2020, Motion 2019 as well as live home recordings featuring his wife Kari Jobe.
“This last year has been so hard for all of us,” shares Cody Carnes. “These songs originally released right as the pandemic was hitting the United States, and it just felt so timely to have the messages available for people. I pray these songs have brought the hope of Jesus to people in such a fearful time. Today I am excited to share nine new versions of these songs with the deluxe album."
Run To The Father was originally released last March and featured popular worship songs "Nothing Else," "Christ Be Magnified," and the title track. He also co-wrote the 2020 most consumed CCM song of the year, "The Blessing (Live)," along with his wife Kari Jobe and Elevation Worship's Steven Furtick and Chris Brown. A special live from home version of the hit anthem is featured on the deluxe edition.
Currently Carnes has four songs in the CCLI Top 100 charts, and he has four songs in the CCLI Top 100 with more than 215 million total career global streams. He also has 136k YouTube subscribers with more than 34 million views on YouTube.
