With a goal to share the gospel of Jesus Christ through their real-life testimonies and rocking original songs,
the Tennessee, Christian rock band, CrossTie, set out in 2009 to entertain and encourage youth and families,
wherever God led. Now, with years and miles of experiences under their belt, they are more eager than ever to go.
CrossTie was a band name idea Greg had years ago but never used. When it came time to name the band,
they thought it was perfect for them, as it describes how, as Believers, we all have a connection, a “tie”, to the Cross.
Uniquely created, as only God can, the band is made up of a father and his three sons, ages 13, 16 and 19.
Playing well beyond their years, these boys along with their singing/songwriting dad, have been called to use their talents to bring glory to God
This is not your ordinary family band! Their sound is a combination of old school rock, fused with the latest contemporary music, making it distinctively CrossTie. With a message that is full of God’s anointing and purpose! Absolutely no age restrictions exist among the people, who now make up the bands growing fan base.
CrossTie released their debut EP “I Share This with You” in early 2011. At the helm of this project was the Dove Award winning producer, Robert White Johnson. It wasn't long after the release, until their EP became a favorite, being played regularly on local and internet radio. They have received messages about changed lives and renewed commitments to Christ from all around the world. This has quickly placed them among the "watched" up-and-comers. As CCMMagazine.com's November "featured artist", the band received more "fan" comments than any of the other artists.
In 2012 the band was honored with an invitation to play at Walt Disney World's Christian music festival “Night Of Joy” on the New Talent Spotlight Stage. They were asked to come back in 2013. They were also invited to perform at Holiday World's "Rock the World" Christian Music Festival in 2013 and 2014. In Oct 2014 they were nominated in three categories and won the International Music and Entertainment Association's Award for "Christian Group of the Year".
The relationship between a father and his sons makes the perfect scenario for God’s Love to be displayed. Each time CrossTie is on stage, this message is brought front and center as they unite to praise God and share His love and hope with audiences. Their energy, work ethic and humble spirits, are rejuvenating to everyone they meet.
Their new EP "Strength To Rise" was released in late 2013, which includes their single "Someone Had to Go" .
