Third Day launched its 12th studio project Miracle, with the powerful, “I Need A Miracle,” on September 14. This week the song claims the No. 1 spot on the Billboard Audience Chart marking more than 51 million cumulative impressions to date. While the band is known as a radio hit-maker, this particular No. 1 made its way to the top in a season dominated by holiday music.
“This song is special to us because it was inspired by a story shared by one of our fans,” shares Third Day’s lead singer, Mac Powell. “It’s about how music, and the great work of our friends at radio, can offer hope to a hurting world. We’re looking forward to getting to play this live on our spring tour.”
The 12-track Miracle (Nov. 6) was produced by Brendan O’Brien (Bruce Springsteen, Pearl Jam, Train, The Killers) and recorded in the band’s Atlanta-based studio called, The Quarry.
Third Day will hit the road again this February for its 45-city headlining “The Miracle Tour.” The lineup feature special guests including “American Idol” finalist Colton Dixon and singer-songwriter Josh Wilson. “The Miracle Tour” will launch Feb. 21, in Fairfax, Va., and will hit major markets including Memphis, Dallas, Birmingham, Atlanta, Nashville, Indianapolis, Grand Rapids, Chicago and many more before wrapping up in May. Tickets go on sale Friday, November 30 at 10 AM EST. Visit www.ThirdDay.com for more information and
