These boys know how to put on a great show. Highly recommend

I absolutely loved seeing and hearing this band live. Their performance showed just how much they loved their music and playing for everyone. They loved their audience and the audience loved them.

CrossTie: Undisputed Champions of Christian Rock

On Sunday, August 26th 2012 I had the rare privilege of getting out from behind the keyboards at Lighthouse Ministry where I am the church's pianist/music leader and join the crowd seated in the pews to listen to CrossTie's performance. By the end of show they had renewed my faith in the younger generation of Christian music as well as individuals. The refreshingly positive and professional attitudes began with Greg, the dad and leader. What a cool dad! Each member worked diligently together as a team to set up and sound check. Before the show started they gathered together along with the rest of the crew and prayed. Halfway thru the first song it was apparent that each member (despite their young ages) had already mastered their instruments and played at a level far beyond their years. They were well-coached & rehearsed, tight, included tasty chops, breaks, rests and modulations. As a musician with over 40 years of experience (including professional) frankly I was blown away and would highly recommend CrossTie to any and every church/Christian organization that needs some energy pumped in. Their entire entourage was equally professional and congenial and I feel as though I have made lifelong musician friends and would love to someday collaborate in the studio with them - if not, I would be perfectly content to be a lifelong fan of theirs and just listen. I honestly can't pay them enough compliments and can't wait to see them again, especially at Lighthouse Ministry where I am also in charge of advertising music events. God bless CrossTie and the wonderful work they do for the Lord. May they continue to prosper and reach young souls who are the church of tomorrow. -Randy Hines

Superb Entertainment With A Strong Spiritual Message

CrossTie kept the very eclectic 4thof July crowd in Maury County Park captivated and entertained. Their passion and faith is as impressive as their musical talents. This high energy, family friendly Christian Rock not only impressed the crowd but garnered accolades from other more seasoned groups performing at our event.

If you have an opportunity to hear CrossTie perform don’t miss them…If you have an opportunity to book CrossTie do not hesitate…Book Them Now!

What a great group of guys!

I have used CROSSTIE for the last two years at the middle school where I teach. Both years, they have performed at our year end concert. What can I say other than they are awesome! The kids loved their program and their presentation. Even though we are a public school, these guys presented a simple message of the gospel through their songs that our students could understand and enjoy.

I also enjoy working with them because of their hearts! They definitely have their hearts focused on ministering to their audience, no matter how big or small. I would recommend them for ANY function/concert without reservation!

What an Awesome Book Release/Cast Party With CrossTie

CrossTie gave us a full Christian rock concert for our book release/cast party for Band of Angels Musical(www.bandofangelsmusical.com). They performed better than we ever dreamed. Everyone, all ages present, absolutely fell in love with them! This young group definitely has His guiding hand upon them. Band mom and manager, Tina, promply addressed all questions and concerns I had before the big party. I was anxiously awaiting meeting the entire family. I hope to get this young, talented group up to East Tennessee and the Gatlinburg/Pigeon Forge area very soon!

Amazing

We had an outdoor concert, in June, in Alabama. CrossTie played amazing in 95 degree weather. Really touched the youth of our church and had the group rocking. It was an amazing worship event. They gave testimony and played music that was truly enjoyed by an audience from 8-88. Yes the bass guitar player really plays. They hung around signing autographs, and worshiping with us while the next group followed.

My son, along with the other kids said it was the best day of their lives. That made the heat, in Alabama, one of my best days ever.

Review by Robin K.

We had Crosstie Rock play at a unique 24 hr worship event that took a lot of understanding and cooperation from all of the bands playing. They had to be able to set up quickly without a sound check knowing that during their set everything wasn't going to be perfect. CrossTie Rock pulled this off flawlessly and completely got that this event was about total worship and not about needing everything to be perfect for their set. On top of that they sounded great and truly worshiped and led those in attendance to be able to worship. It's cool to see an entire family that is so talented using that talent to glorify the Lord. They are a band that I know can adjust to many different venues and were a true pleasure to have at our event.

Review by jeff b.

Awesome is a good word to start with. This is a great story of a family that praises Jesus and is firmly committed in their faith. The music is powerful. The testimony of their faith is even greater. The talent that God has given this family is amazing. They have played youth rallies and other event. This event was a biker event and they were a great success. If you have a chance to book them or to hear, take advantage of it. You will be blessed by their testimonies and by the music.

Overview

We play original, evangelical rock songs, however we do a few covers. Our sound would be discribed as a cross between Third Day and Disciple. We like to tell about the miracle healing God did for Joshua when he was just born. If time permits, we like the boys to each tell how God has used them and what He is doing in their lives right now.

We typically arrive 1-2 hours before the show for sound check and set-up.

CrossTie

CrossTie Bio
With a goal to share the gospel of Jesus Christ through their real-life testimonies and rocking original songs, the Tennessee, Christian rock band, CrossTie, set out in 2009 to entertain and encourage youth and families, wherever God led. Now, with years and miles of experiences under their belt, they are more eager than ever to go.

CrossTie was a band name idea Greg had years ago but never used. When it came time to name the band, they thought it was perfect for them, as it describes how, as Believers, we all have a connection, a “tie”, to the Cross.

Uniquely created, as only God can, the band is made up of a father and his three sons, ages 12, 15 and 17. Playing well beyond their years, these boys along with their successful singing/songwriting dad, have been called to use their talents to bring glory to God
.
This is not your ordinary family band! Their sound is a combination of old school rock, fused with the latest contemporary music, making it distinctively CrossTie. With a message that is full of God’s anointing and purpose! Absolutely no age restrictions exist among the people, who now make up the bands growing fan base.

CrossTie released their debut EP “I Share This with You” in early 2011. At the helm of this project was the Dove Award winning producer, Robert White Johnson. It wasn't long after the release, until their EP became a favorite, being played regularly on local and internet radio. They have received messages about changed lives and renewed commitments to Christ from all around the world. This has quickly placed them among the "watched" up-and-comers. As CCMMagazine.com's November "featured artist", the band received more "fan" comments than any of the other artists.

In 2012 the band was honored with an invitation to play at Walt Disney World's Christian music festival “Night Of Joy” on the New Talent Spotlight Stage. They were invited back for the 2013 festival as well. They were also invited to play at the 2nd annual Holiday World Christian festival, "Rock The World" in 2013.

The relationship between a father and his sons makes the perfect scenario for God’s Love to be displayed. Each time CrossTie is on stage, this message is brought front and center as they unite to praise God and share His love and hope with audiences. Their energy, work ethic and humble spirits, are rejuvenating to everyone they meet.
