1 Girl Nation and OBB announce the While We’re Young Tour
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: August 28, 2014 NASHVILLE, Tenn.— Two of Christian music’s hottest new acts, 1 Girl Nation and OBB, have announced the While We’re Young Tour, sponsored by Save the Storks and introducing new worship artist, Tori Harris.
Having recently received their first Dove Award nomination for New Artist of the Year, 1 Girl Nation is made up of four talented young women, each possessing a strong, distinctive voice and tons of personality. “The really cool thing about the group is all four of us are individual people,” says Lindsey. “We have individual looks and styles and our voices are different. A big part of our message is that four completely different girls can come together and be unified and sound like one. We’re driven by our over-the-top, fun personalities. We have a blast!” “While We’re Young,” the group’s first radio single and namesake of the tour, encourages young people to make the right choices early in life. Kayli commented, “We wanted to put our own spin on the idea – You Only Live Once – and say, ‘While we’re young we want to live out our faith and bring the message to youth that you only live once, so why not live for Christ?” OBB, a group of three brothers, first came to light in 2009 on the CBS Early Show’s “Singing Family Face-Off,” which led to a record deal with Curb Records. The brothers’ self-titled EP debuted at #23 on Billboard’s Heatseekers chart and #39 on the Billboard Christian albums chart, a rarity for an EP bowing from a brandnew artist.
The band of brothers give a high-octane performance every night that resonates with fans, showing youth that worship can be an enjoyable experience. “I believe we serve a fun God, and I’m not afraid to stand on stage, jump around, run and raise my hands, and give everything I have to worshipping God,” says Jacob.
Opening the tour will be new worship artist, Tori Harris. This summer, Tori’s new EP, Sweet Dolor, debuted at #2 on the iTunes Christian charts. In addition to the While We’re Young Tour, Tori will also be playing on select Acquire the Fire dates this fall.
