During their sold out "Lead Us Back" tour stop in Nashville this past weekend, the members of the multiplatinum-selling band Third Day were presented with plaques for their No. 1 single, "Soul On Fire." Holding the top spot for 11 weeks at radio, this Grammy-nominated song was the most played at Christian radio in 2015. "Soul On Fire" was also officially named the No. 1 Christian Airplay Song of the Year, according to Billboard's Christian Overall National Audience year-end chart, and iTunes' editorial team selected "Soul On Fire" as one of 2015's top tracks.

Third Day continues their highly successful "Lead Us Back" Tour, which wraps March 20 in Washington, D.C. Then, on April 14 and running through May 7, for the first time ever, the band will join labelmate Steven Curtis Chapman on the road for a 15-city tour across the U.S. Each night of the tour will surely be an unforgettable evening of music as they will share the stage and perform each other's hits.
