Grammy Award-nominated worship leader Cody Carnes has released his first-ever live recorded album, “God is Good!”
The 12-track album was captured this summer during a special two-night worship event at Belonging Co. in Nashville. Special guests on the project include Kari Jobe, Natalie Grant and Benjamin William Hastings. The album also currently has three songs simultaneously on radio: "Ain't Nobody," (Christian Radio), "Good" and "Take You At Your Word.”
Carnes said, "I am so excited to be releasing my first live album. This night ended up being one of the best nights of my life – so many of my favorite people worshipping together in one room. These moments are full of the joy and hope of Jesus. They are a celebration of the goodness of God. I’m praying you also experience that when you listen!"
Celebrating the album, live performance videos from the recording have been released leading up to the release for the songs "Forever & Amen" with Kari Jobe, "Good (Can't Be Anything Else)," and the radio single "Ain't Nobody."
Today, the live video for "Take You At Your Word" (with Hastings) debuts on YouTube. Next week, a new video will premiere each day leading up to an event on Friday, (8 p.m. ET) for the full album livestream showcasing all 12 performances on Facebook and YouTube.
Already in his career, Carnes has been nominated three times for a Grammy Award and currently has 13 songs on the CCLI Top 2000 chart as a songwriter. He is also a co-writer and performer on the global hit anthem "The Blessing" along with his wife, Kari Jobe, and Elevation Worship. "The Blessing" is an RIAA Gold-certified single and has more than 77 million YouTube views.
Kicking off his release weekend, Carnes and Jobe will step onto the legendary Grand Ole Opry stage tomorrow for their Opry debut. Tickets can be purchased here.
