To some, Chris TomlinThe achievements of could be described as indescribable.
At 50, the singer sold out, received a Grammy and won Time‘s title of “most often sung artist” thanks to his hits being sung in churches around the world.
But as the singer prepares to release his new album Still on September 9, Chris says his music remains rooted in his humble beginnings.
“I’m from a small town in East Texas,” Chris exclusively shared with E! New. “Literally 2,500 people in my town with a Dairy Queen and a red light. Now I live in a small town outside of Nashville. I like doing things with my family. I’m a dad daughter and even when I’m on the road, people around me would think I’m a pretty ordinary guy.”
Like many parents, Chris had to adapt when the coronavirus pandemic put a hiatus on touring and performing. Quality time at home with wife Lauren Bricken and their three daughters—Ashlynten, Madison7 and 18 months Elle Grace– inspired some of the songs on his latest album.
