6 songs take CAIN back to their worship roots
The new worship album from CAIN is out now. “Honest Offering” (Sony Music/Provident Entertainment) offers six songs, including two previously released leading up to today's street date: "Friend In Jesus" and "Praise Opens Prison Doors. A live video for the title track can be viewed below. Listen to the project here.
A compilation of worship songs is something the sibling trio has been wanting to make since their childhood, especially as teens when the Cain family would host high school Bible studies.
"We'd pack so many in our family room and just sing to Jesus," Madison Cain Johnson said.
Now singing as their careers, the siblings knew it was the right time to record some of their favorite worship songs along with sharing a few new ones.
"We hope that this is a time that people can get lost in the songs and really connect with God," Madison said. "That is more than we can hope for, more than people just liking the songs or enjoying themselves. We really hope that people get to encounter the living God."
“Honest Offering” features the writing of award-winning songwriters and artists including Chris Tomlin, Jason Ingram, Ethan Hulse, Micah Kuiper, Nick Schwarz, Jonathan Smith and Mitch Wong. Wong also shares his vocals on "Shine On Us" while David Leonard appears on "Blessed Assurance." Touted as their most personal collection of songs yet, the album was produced by Smith, Brad King and Leonard, and was recorded live at Nashville's legendary Ocean Way Studio.
CAIN is also ready to embark on its first-ever headlining tour this spring. Joined by Katy Nichole and David Leonard, the "Live And In Color Tour" will kick off on March 2. Click here for more information.
The music of CAIN quickly became a mainstay at radio since their debut single "Rise Up (Lazarus)" was released in early 2020. Raised in Hartselle, Alabama, as pastor's kids and now residing in Nashville, CAIN – Madison Cain Johnson, Taylor Cain Matz and Logan Cain – got their first break opening for Dave Barnes and Andrew Ripp at a show in 2012. Now a decade later, they've toured with Zach Williams, Casting Crowns, TobyMac, on the K-LOVE Christmas Tour, and performed on the Grand Ole Opry stage. They are headlining their first tour, “The Live And In Color Tour,” this spring.
They've hit No. 1 back-to-back at radio with their first two singles, "Rise Up (Lazarus)" and "Yes He Can," both songs from their first full-length album “Rise Up.” They won a K-LOVE Fan Award for Top Breakout Single ("Rise Up (Lazarus)" and were nominated for an American Music Award (AMA) in 2021. CAIN also received multiple nominations for the GMA Dove Awards in 2022 for Best New Artist, Pop/Contemporary Album for “Rise Up,” Recorded Music Packaging for “Rise Up,” and Christmas/Special Event Album for “Wonderful.” Their viral single "I'm So Blessed" from “Rise Up” continues to grow on the streaming front, amassing more than a million streams each week over the past eight weeks.
