Dove award-winning writer and producer Bernie Herms - noted for work with Natalie Grand and Casting Crowns - along with Jason Kyle and Blake Bollinger, collaborate to capture the trio (brother and sister Sam and Laura Allen, and Chad Smith) on guitar-driven worship and impeccable harmonies.
December 6th, 2011 - Curb Records announced today that Rodney Atkins has signed a new contract with both Curb Records and Curb Publishing. Atkins signed his first Curb contract in 1996 and has since released four studio albums, eighteen singles and celebrated six multi-week number one hits.
