Award-winning artist and songwriter Brandon Heath announces the 24-city “Blue Mountain Tour,” named for his forthcoming studio project, Blue Mountain, due out Oct. 9. Heath is joined by label mate – celebrated singer, songwriter and worship leader – Matt Maher on all dates; the tour is presented by Food for the Hungry.

Kicking off October 11 in Milwaukee, Wis., the “Blue Mountain Tour” will visit cities including Chicago, Knoxville, Indianapolis and St. Louis. A night of rich musical layers, fans can expect to hear Heath’s hits (“Give Me Your Eyes,” “I’m Not Who I Was” and “Your Love”) as well as songs from his fourth full-length studio album, Blue Mountain. The forthcoming 12-track project merges modern music-making and ancient tones, taking listeners on a musical journey full of heart and back-porch ease via Heath’s signature storytelling.

“Similar to the new album, this tour invites the listener to a special experience to come on up to ‘Blue Mountain,’ a fictional place where this music was created,” says Heath.

Heath shares the stage with Essential Records’ Matt Maher, known for worship staples like “Your Grace Is Enough,” “Christ Is Risen” and the radio hit “Hold Us Together.” Also part of the night, audiences will meet the talented spoken-word poet Micah Bournes and new independent sibling acoustic act, The Church Sisters. Heath will continue highlighting the work of Food for the Hungry on tour, specifically its efforts in the villages of Kitgum, Uganda. These are communities in which Brandon Heath’s audiences have wholly sustained the child sponsorship program.
