Nashville, TN (January 8, 2021)
Fueled by their recent Dove Award win, a single currently climbing radio charts, and a new album on the horizon, StowTown Records breakout sibling quartet, The Erwins, are stepping into 2021 with their first-ever GRAMMY Award nomination. The Texas-based group’s 2019 release, What Christmas Really Means, is nominated for a GRAMMY in the Best Roots Gospel Album category alongside recordings by such legendary artists as The Crabb Family, Fisk Jubilee Singers, Mark Bishop and Ernie Haase & Signature Sound.
Lauded for their modern take on classic Southern Gospel harmonies, The Erwins celebrated another milestone last fall as “The Power Of An Empty Tomb” earned the Dove Award for Southern Gospel Recorded Song of the Year. The Joel Lindsey-penned ballad is featured on the siblings’ acclaimed 2018 recording, Watch & See.
In addition, the quartet’s latest single—a reimagined new rendition of the Casting Crowns hit “Nobody”— is currently impacting Southern Gospel radio charts. The genre-spanning track from The Erwins’ latest project, Favorites: On Repeat, was written by Bernie Herms, Matthew West and Casting Crowns’ Mark Hall.
Keith, Kody, Kris and Katie Erwin have been singing together their entire lives. They grew up performing in countless churches and at events around the country with their parents, who have served as full-time evangelists for more than 40 years. The group’s 2011 debut, What Really Matters, featured the Erwin brothers, with Katie officially joining the lineup later that year on the follow-up project, Jesus In A Song. In the decade since, The Erwins have released six subsequent recordings, as well as the GRAMMY-nominated What Christmas Really Means.
