SEVEN-TIME DOVE AWARD NOMINEE TODD AGNEW TO APPEAR ON TV’S ‘BRIDGES’
Chart-Topping Singer/Songwriter & Worship Leader Performs Songs from His New CD, From Grace to Glory: The Music of Todd Agnew
MEMPHIS, Tenn. (October 24, 2017) – Chart-topping, seven-time Dove Award-nominated singer, songwriter and worship leader Todd Agnew was in Nashville recently, taping an episode of the Christian Television Network’s (CTN) popular lifestyle magazine show, Bridges, with host Monica Schmelter. During the show, Agnew performed the songs, “Glory to Our Great Redeemer” and “Grace Like Rain” from his new album, From Grace to Glory: The Music of Todd Agnew.
The episode featuring Agnew is scheduled to air on Thursday, October 26, at 9:30 a.m. and again that evening at 8:30 p.m. CST. Bridges is broadcast on CTN affiliate WHTN-TV in the Middle Tennessee region, where the show can be viewed via Charter on Channel 10, Comcast on Channels 21 and 1021, and local antenna on Channel 39. It can also be viewed on Dish on Channel 39, and online via ctntv.org/livestream at the days and times listed above.
“I’ve been a Todd Agnew fan for many years,” says Schmelter. “It was incredible to meet him and hear his heart on worship. I know our viewers will be excited to hear Todd’s latest project, From Grace to Glory.”
“It was a joy to be able to share my heart and my music with Monica and the staff and crew of Bridges,” says Agnew. “I appreciate their boldness and willingness to dig into difficult issues. It’s really conducive for encouraging conversations about faith.”
A steady buzz has been surrounding Agnew’s new project since the release of the first single, “Glory to Our Great Redeemer.” Called a “spine tingling new hymn” by UK publication CrossRhythms, the single has gained traction at Christian Soft A/C and INSP radio formats, recently showing up as one of the Most Added songs on Billboard’s Christian Soft A/C chart, and landing in the Top Ten on both the Christian Music Weekly’s (CMW) Worship and INSP charts. Another song from the new project, “When Love Comes to Town” (Agnew’s U2 Cover from the benefit album, In the Name of Love: Artists United for Africa) recently landed in the Top Ten on the CMW Country Chart.\
Agnew’s studies at Dallas Theological Seminary (where he is nearing completion of his Masters degree) led him to pen “Glory to Our Great Redeemer.” The song reflects Agnew’s deepening spiritual, theological, and musical maturity through the process of getting married, embracing fatherhood, moving to Texas and delving deeper into the formal study of God’s Word at seminary.
“The song talks about ransom, redemption, adoption and more,” Agnew explains. “Our worship grows deeper as we understand more fully all God has done on our behalf.”
