Cover Album’s Timely Themes

The sixth studio album from six-time GRAMMY ® winner TobyMac is now available, and receiving stellar reviews from both critics and fans alike. With an accumulation of over 11 million units in career sales, the 11 track project is the follow up to his No. 1 Billboard debut and GRAMMY® Award winning project, Eye On It. The title of the album comes as a reminder to “make every moment count, and make every second count,” explains TobyMac – an album that he feels reflects important themes like loving each other well and the richness of diversity.

ESPN Online exclusively premiered the music video for “Feel It (Feat. Mr. Talkbox)” from the Billboard Music Award Winner last week, while also sharing with readers more about his new album and love of sports. “Feel It” is TobyMac’s current track impacting radio as well, already top 10 on Hot AC and top 20 at both AC Monitored and Indicator formats.
Next week, FOX & Friends will host TobyMac and the Diverse City Band on Aug. 19 for a live performance on their outdoor stage, following this week’s national radio promo tour hitting stations in Tampa, Orlando, Minneapolis, Washington D.C., Baltimore, Atlanta and more.

Headline News’ “Weekend Express,” Billboard, FOX 411, ABC Radio, FOX International, FOX’s “A Moment With” Podcast and Patheos, among others, recently spoke with TobyMac about his latest record and the timely themes found on the project. In support of THIS IS NOT A TEST, the American Music Award winner completed a nationwide Satellite Meedia tour on the morning of his release, speaking with over a dozen morning TV shows, including Houston, Raleigh, Charleston, Las Vegas, Detroit, Miami, Nashville and more.

Produced by Christopher Stevens, David Garcia, TobyMac, Capital Kings and Solomon Olds, THIS IS NOT A TEST finds TobyMac collaborating with a diverse group of artists, including for the first time in a decade, his dcTalk bandmates Kevin Max and Michael Tait, and newer artist like Capital Kings, Ryan Stevenson and Hollyn. The song “Undeniable” adds the vocal stylings of young students from New Hope Academy. A long-time supporter of the non-profit school based in Franklin, Tenn., New Hope Academy brings together socio-economic status and races, and provides scholarships to low-income families for high-quality education.

Next up for the multi-GRAMMY ® winner will be a headlining tour, bringing his dynamic live performances, including the popular Diverse City Band, to 36 markets this fall with Colton Dixon, Britt Nicole and introducing Hollyn.

A list of tour dates are available at TobyMac’s website.
