Oklahoma Worship Artist/Songwriter’s Debut Single Goes for Adds Today
February 4, 2020 (Nashville, Tennessee) – “Firm Foundation,” the debut single from Tulsa, Oklahoma, worship artist and songwriter Ross Crawford goes for adds today to Christian AC and Praise & Worship-formatted radio outlets. The song also is available at all digital retailers, including iTunes/Apple Music, Google Play and Spotify. A lyric video is on YouTube.
“I’m excited to share this song,” Crawford says. “Life can be so rough and we can be so quick to lean on the wrong things for support. We forget that through all of it, God is there. What’s even better is that He never changes. He’s always God, even when everything around us is falling apart. He’s not falling apart with us, and we forget that. So it makes sense to build my life on Him so that I always have solid ground to stand on, even when the conditions aren’t exactly stable.”
Crawford, who has been writing songs since 2011, penned “Firm Foundation.” Sean Hill at Uphill Studios produced the project.
Though “Firm Foundation” is Crawford’s first official release, he has been sharing music during worship for years. Growing up as a preacher’s kid, Crawford had many opportunities to sing in church. After graduating from high school, he got a job as the worship leader at the church where he was raised.
His love for music, however, goes back much earlier.
“My parents have pictures of me as a toddler sitting in front of the entertainment center with headphones on, listening to Handel’s Messiah.” Crawford says. “I still remember just laying on the floor of the living room, listening to Steven Curtis Chapman for hours. Now when I look back I can see that it was all just preparing me for this.”
In recent years, Crawford has shared his music with thousands of people in worship services across the midwest and has shared the stage with artists such as Hawk Nelson, Stars Go Dim, Austin French and many more.
In September 2019, Crawford signed with McLaughlin Music Group for management. He is in the midst of recording his first project of original music.
