Contemporary Christian Music performer David Crowder is set to perform Friday, July 21st at the Clarksburg Amphitheater with gates opening at 6:00 PM. Tickets are still available for purchase online or at the gate, however, less than three hundred tickets remain for the Grammy nominated music star.
From Waco, Texas, Crowder began performing while attending Baylor University. During the time he attended the Christian based university, he noticed the lack of numbers attending church. So, through his music, his ambition was to draw more people to church and things just took off from there.
In 2012, he separated from his band aptly named the David Crowder Band and began a solo career with the release of his first album, Neon Steeple. His first song off the album “I Am” hit the charts and rose to No. 3 on the Christian Songs Chart. Since then, he has released four albums including his 2021 release “Milk and Honey” and even a holiday album.
Songs like “Good God Almighty” and “In the House” will highlight a song list for all to enjoy. Those who are aware of his music have nothing but praise for the 51-year-old artist. He brings a good fan base to his shows as his unique style of sound really sets the tone.
“We attended a concert a few years back and the music is electric and just a joy to listen to,” said one fan. “Those who enjoy listening to that genre of music will be surprised at the energy he brings during his concerts. We would see him anytime he is in our driving area.”
The Amp is located at Veterans Park in the upper area adjacent to the VA Hospital. It has hosted up and coming bands over the years like Florida-Georgia Line and Old Dominion as well as rockers like .38 Special and Kansas. Tickets normally range from $35-$55 based on seating and there are plenty of activities to do while waiting for the music to start.
“Many of us like to get there early and tailgate like we are at Mountaineer Field,” said John Lacaria of Clarksburg. “We are big fans of country music and have attended many of these concerts including Tracy Lawrence a few weeks back and all the seating is great. Before the shows, we take our grandkids down to the playground or play mini golf. Inside, there are plenty of items available at the concession stand and a couple food trucks usually show up and sell food as well.”
For those looking to purchase tickets to Crowder can go to the Clarksburg Amphitheater webpage or purchase tickets at the gate. Coming in August is country performing artist Matt Stell, who visits the Amp on Saturday August 26th. This will conclude the major acts for the concert season.
Stell is touring in the midwest right now and will pass through Clarksburg on Saturday before heading to the New York State Fair in Syracuse later in August. In 2019, his song “Prayed for You” has been his staple song. However, his newest album “One of Us” will have some of the songs that will make the set list. Tickets are now available for sale and plenty of reserved seats are available for purchase.
