Chris Tomlin Morning Show Interveiw

Nick
Chris Tomlin on the phone. How are you this morning?

Chris Tomlin
Hey, good morning! Doing great! It’s good to talk to you. Hello to Saint Louis and everybody around.

Nick
I understand we’ve got a really limited time, so I was going to see how much we can learn about you in like a minute. Is that OK?

Chris Tomlin
Yeah, I love it. Let’s go.

Nick
All right. Let’s do some rapid-fire here. Your favorite game to play with your kids?

Chris Tomlin
Oh, my gosh. Um. Candyland!

Nick
Your favorite road trip snack.

Chris Tomlin
Peanut M&M and ice tea.

Nick
All right. Favorite Major League Baseball team?

Chris Tomlin
It has to be in Texas Rangers. That’s where I’m from.

Nick
All right. Well, we still love you. That’s all right. You’re in Cardinals Nation, but that’s all right.

Chris Tomlin
That’s right.

Nick
Your favorite fast food stop on tour.

Chris Tomlin
Oh, that’s definitely Chick-Fil-A or Chipotle. It’s a tie between the two!

Nick
Favorite song of yours to perform live.

Chris Tomlin
Right now it’s a song called Holy Forever of my new record that has just it’s been amazing. Amazing to play.

Nick
Awesome. All right. I got two more for you. One is, what song is on your playlist that would surprise the JOY FM audience? You got any old-school 80’s song, or…

Chris Tomlin
Right now on my playlist. I mean, I got three girls, so it’s Encanto, We Don’t Talk About Bruno. This morning on the way to school we were listening to The Nutcracker. I don’t know why. That’s what they wanted to listen to because they’re doing ballet. Yeah, that’s my life right now.

Nick
I completely understand that one. All right. And one more. You’ve been in St. Louis many times. You have a favorite thing you love to do when you’re in St. Louis or a favorite memory of being here.

Chris Tomlin
Yeah. One of my favorite memories is I played at the Cardinals game years and years ago for after a game. I was a nobody, no one knew who I was. There was no record deal. This was a long time ago. And my dad I, I believe it was Father’s Day, and we went up in the arch together and all the things we had a great time. One of my great memories of my dad.

Nick
How cool is that? Your new album, Always, hit stores Friday and we’ve been playing the song for a while. Can you want to tell us a little bit about Always?

Chris Tomlin
Yeah! The title, Always, obviously is name of the song that’s out, but it’s also the title of the record. And the idea is that we think about “always” as that Eternal, Everlasting, Infinite… That’s who God is. And reminding people that we serve God is faithful, even if we’re faithless. He is faithful to us. He’s an Always God.

And for me and my music, I always wanted to point people to that, that that there is one who is faithful and that is eternal. And our faith is not just 30 minutes old, but it’s generation after generation. Hebrew says Jesus is the same yesterday, today and forever. And that’s, that’s the heart of this song Always. And the heart of this music.

Chris Tomlin
When I try to write music, the whole record’s just full of worship like that. And so that’s, that’s kind of where the idea came from.
