CCMG artist Crowder shares an honest look at his life’s story in the latest episode of the Trevor Talks podcast. The worship leader is still fresh off the release of Milk & Honey, his third album to top the Billboard Top Christian Albums chart. In his appearance on the Trevor Talks podcast, Crowder shared a little bit about the process of writing a monumental album while in quarantine. He also took listeners into a rare look behind the scenes of his childhood, which he spent in rural Texas.
“It’s really amazing that I get to do this,” Crowder reflects. “Not only that I love music, but that I get to find the fulfillment of knowing I’m put together in a particular way, and I’m using the way I’m put together to aid in the story of the gospel being understood and appreciated, shaping how we think about one another as well as God. All through music! It’s really amazing.”
You can listen to the conversation on Spotify, Apple Music, and Google Podcasts. Get Milk & Honey on Spotify or Apple Music, and keep up with Crowder on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.
