‘’This work is born out of adversity,’’ Jason Crabb says as he releases new EP


Two-time Grammy Award-winning Christian singer, Jason Crabb, has released his new EP titled Just As I Am. He said that the EP which comprises of five songs was inspired by his previous challenging experiences. It also marked a new chapter in his life. 

The Christian Post reports that this would be Crabb’s first work with Red Street Records label owned by Jay DeMarcus. DeMarcus, who is a member of the group Rascal Flatts, is one of the producers for this project.

The new EP has tracks such as Just As I Am, which already has a video which was made in honor of NASCAR driver, Natalie Decker who was featured in the video with her race car. This song has made to the Top 30 on Billboard's AC Monitored chart.

Other songs on the EP are “Heart Wide Open,” ‘’Before,’’ ‘’Fire in The Fire,’’ “Send Me (The One),”and “Friend In The Fire.” Songwriters like Andrew Bergthold, Josh Bronlewee, Tony Wood were also featured on this work. 

Crabb, a 22-time Dove Awards winner has been in the industry for over 25 years. While talking about this work, he affirmed that Just As I Am is a strong declaration of faith in the One who is steady and certain even in moments of adversity and insecurity.

In addition, he said that he usually seeks God’s guidance and wisdom whenever he embarks on a new venture. He recalled the words of his grandmother- Richardson- who taught him to always build his confidence in God regardless of what happens. The reason is that God unfailingly takes charge of every situation. He continued,

‘’She used to tell me, ‘When you get to the end of your rope, tie a knot and hold on to God.’ So holding on to God, the project of making Just As I Am began.”

Crabbs said that his latest project was a result of adversity which was caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. He recalled that it was at the start of this EP that the world was hit by the deadly virus. Consequently, family members and friends fell ill and this was quite devastating.

Since this was a discouraging period for him, he quoted Isaiah 61:3, which says, God will “give them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness … that He may be glorified.” 

He noted that this passage reiterated the wondrous nature of God. More so, it is a proof that God would turn a bad situation into a good one.
