Three time Grammy-nominated artist David Crowder, who's synonymously known as Crowder, released his new album I Know a Ghost last month and says he decided to use the word ghost instead of spirit as a way to draw more people.
After its release in November, I Know A Ghost debuted in the Top 5 on Billboard’s Christian Albums chart. As he has in the past, the multi-instrumentalist offers a diverse catalog of music on this new record with a modern blend of bluegrass, country, electronic-synth, gospel and Southern hip-hop.

But don’t worry, don’t worry. I’m gonna leave something with you. I’m gonna leave you My ghost. And it’s gonna be a comfort to you.”
