Carman continues ‘Live Across America’ Tour, talks about surviving cancer

After a 10 year hiatus, Christian Music Trailblazer and Platinum-Selling Recording Artist Carman released a new studio album, ‘No Plan B,’ back in May through his independent label Norway Avenue Records and Capital Christian Distribution. In support of the new release, Carman hit the road on his Live Across America Tour making stops at venues across the country bringing new music to friends and fans nationwide.

That tour continues beginning 9/26 and continues well into 2015.

Carman No Plan B Tour Christian music“The main message of the whole album can be found in the title track, ‘No Plan B,’ which is how I’ve lived all these years,” said Carman. “Even if I only have a few more on this earth, I’ll still be preaching, giving altar calls, winning souls for the kingdom and singing the songs that have the power to bring deliverance into people’s lives, whether it be in front of 20 people or 20,000 people. God doesn’t call us to be popular. He calls us to be effective and that’s always been my goal, effective right up to the end. Jesus is ‘Plan A.’ There is ‘No Plan B.’”

The CD and tour were made possible through the unprecedented fan response to the crowd-funding platform Kickstarter campaign he launched after opening up on social media about a multiple myeloma cancer diagnosis in 2013. The campaign was wildly successful – the second most funded Kickstarter music campaign ever – and set the tone for the momentum behind the release of No Plan B and major national tour, Live Across America. Carman found a renewed vision and purpose for his music ministry when the fans spoke, and a Carman buzz was rekindled by fans that inspired the artist to make a new CD and tour again.

“I was diagnosed in 2013 and was planning on having 2-3 good years left, but I didn’t want to keep it a secret,” confirmed Carman. “I posted the news on Facebook and wanted to be honest and upright about it with anyone who asked. So many people started sharing stories of what they went through and posted photos of their heads wrapped up because their hair was gone. When I hear a story like that, my instinct is to reach out and cheer them up.”

The new album features new songs, a great “Sopranos” inspired riff titled “God Made Man” and a patriotic ballad called “The Flag.”

“I’ve always sought to minister to the best of my ability. I wanted to help win as many souls for the kingdom as I possibly could,” sums up Carman. “Now I meet people who say ‘my life was so messed up 20 years ago, but I went to your concert, got saved and now I’m a worship pastor.’ Stories like that just go to show you how somebody’s life can completely turn around. I’m like a soldier who serves their country. I just want to serve people, and if just one guy got it, then it’s all been worth it.”
