Rush Of Fools Ends 2011 With Strong Success On New Single, High Profile Tours, And Strong Media Support For New Record We Once Were

Rush Of Fools is ending 2011 with strong success after releasing their highly anticipated current record We Once Were in September.  The first single, “Grace Found Me,” broke the Top 5 on Radio & Records Soft AC chart this week climbing to the #3 spot.  At the same time, the new Rock single, “Help Our Unbelief,” is New & Active on the trade magazine’s Rock chart after coming in as one of the Most Added songs last week.

Fans were treated to music from the new record, as November was a busy touring month for the group.  They joined several tour dates with Mercy Me on their Rock & Worship Roadshow, and for the second year in a row Rush Of Fools headed to Norway for a week to play a high-profile soccer conference.  Wes Willis and Kevin Huguley are currently in the Philippines with Compassion International, as they are part of a group working with Compassion on various projects that includes leading a songwriting workshop.

Media has been glowing in their accolades for the new CD with JesusFreakHideout.com saying:  A new sound, new label, good production, and solid lyrical content all spell out a solid third release for this group from Alabama. NewReleaseTuesday.com adds: This is the best overall album by Rush Of Fools and is one of my top albums of the year. Additional media included coverage from CCM Magazine, Essential Connection, LeSea Broadcasting’s Harvest Show and Live From Studio B, HearitFirst.com, Birmingham News, CMSpin.com, All Access, CrossPoint Magazine, and Christian Music Review.  Upcoming media includes TBN’s 1 Music Village, Beliefnet, Daytime/NBC Affiliate in Birmingham, Kevin Huguley becoming a monthly worship blogger for CCM Magazine, and on a personal note: a new baby for Wes Willis in February and Kevin Huguley will be adopting a baby girl from South Korea.
