Nashville, Tenn. (October 20, 2015) —- One of Christian music’s most beloved and respected singer/songwriters, Andrew Peterson, has reached a major milestone in his illustrious career. His new album, The Burning Edge Of Dawn, debuted at No. 2 on Billboard Current Contemporary Christian Top Albums Chart and in the Top Fifty for Billboard Top Albums Chart (all genres). Peterson’s last two projects debuted in the Top Ten with Counting Stars at No. 6 and Light for the Lost Boy at No. 9. The record features 10 new songs that were co-written by Peterson and the album’s producer, Gabe Scott.
“Words can’t express how grateful I am to God that these songs are making their way out into the world,” says Peterson. “Numbers and charts don’t really matter that much, but if something in this record can bring someone some hope or encouragement that matters to me a great deal. My heartfelt thanks to everyone who helped spread the word.”
At the same time, Peterson has received stellar reviews for The Burning Edge Of Dawn.
CCM Magazine – Burning Edge is a classic Andrew Peterson release filled with powerful analogies of God and a God-ward faith meant to challenge and encourage the listener’s journey.
New Release Today – More than just being an artistic feat, this is an album full of songs for weary and wandering hearts to cling to this side of the dawn.
Phantom Tollbooth – This is not simply an album about enduring hard times, though one could certainly draw that conclusion; this is an album about breathlessly anticipating the hope of glory. For that reason, it is supremely up-lifting.
Christian Musician – With The Burning Edge of Dawn, Andrew Peterson continues to show himself to be one of the foremost singer/songwriters around.
HollywoodJesus.com – I simply could not love this album anymore but somehow the more I listen to it, my love for it grows.
Peterson debuted the new songs at his album release party in Nashville that was part of his 6th Annual Hutchmoot 2015 event. The sold-out conference features live music, great food, conversation, and a series of discussions centered on art, faith and telling great stories across a wide range of mediums.
