Chris Tomlin

CCM artist and worship leader Chris Tomlin is joining the roster of publicity clients at Schmidt Relations, which also represents Luke Bryan, Easton Corbin, Eric Paslay, Cole Swindell and the Grand Ole Opry.

As one of only four artists in any genre ever to receive the Sound Exchange Digital Radio Award for over 1 Billion digital radio streams (joining only Justin Timberlake, Pitbull, and Garth Brooks), Tomlin has also sold more than eight million albums, 11.3 million digital tracks with 16 No. 1 singles.

The Grammy winner’s list of music awards include an American Music Award, three Billboard Music Awards, 21 Dove Awards, a BMI Songwriter of the Year Award and more. Tomlin’s latest No. 1 charting album Never Lose Sight contains three No. 1 radio singles— “Jesus,” “Good Good Father” and “Home.” Tomlin’s concert tours have sold-out venues in major cities including New York City’s Madison Square Garden, The Forum in Los Angeles, Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena and Red Rocks in Denver, among others. His 2017 “Worship Night in America Tour” became the first Christian tour sponsored by Amazon Music.

On April 5, Tomlin will kick off his 2018 Worship Night in America tour with special guests Kim Walker Smith of Jesus Culture, Matt Maher, Christine D’Clario, Tauren Wells, and Pat Barrett. The tour will hit 24 markets across the U.S. including Chicago, Indianapolis, Atlanta, Philadelphia and more.

Schmidt Relations is a boutique public relations company based in Nashville, Tenn. Established in 1997, owner Jessie Schmidt has worked the careers of some of country music’s finest including Trace Adkins, Rhett Akins, Joe Diffie, DreamWorks Records, Rascal Flatts, Montgomery Gentry, Reba McEntire, Tim McGraw, Brad Paisley, Blake Shelton, Aaron Tippin, Carrie Underwood, Lee Ann Womack and more.

Tomlin’s signing follows the recent announcement that former Schmidt Relations client Carrie Underwood has moved to PMK BNC for publicity.
