(NASHVILLE, Tenn.) April 16, 2009 – Inpop Records artist Shane & Shane will headline the “Turn the Music Down” tour, kicking off April 16 in Springfield, Mo. and wrapping up May 9 in Cave Creek, Ariz. Author/speaker David Nassar (Glory Revealed, A Call to Die) and Essential Records artist Matt Maher join Shane & Shane for a night of worship and teaching to encourage believers to seek and save the lost.


“We are excited about this tour and look forward to people coming out to experience more than songs,” says Shane Everett. “Matt Maher is an amazing worship leader and David Nasser is an amazing communicator of God’s Word. We, Shane & Shane, will wrap up the night with a selection of music focusing on what the Lord spoke through David and Matt. But in the end all our efforts are pointed in a single direction–that we would all leave this evening singing praises to Christ. It is to this end we labor.”


“The ‘Turn the Music Down’ tour will be a night filled with intense worship and awareness and compassion for a world that needs a savior,” says Nassar. “On this special night, we will turn up the music to worship our king but not at the cost of tuning out the need that’s all around us.”
