Or maybe you recognize him from the TV show Dinner Conversations with Mark Lowry and Andrew Greer. Or it could be because you read a book or article he has written. And quite possibly, you are a listener to his podcast with Patsy Clairmont called Bridges. So, whatever the reason you are listening, I hope you enjoy our exchange.

A multiple Dove Award-nominated singer/songwriter and respected author, Andrew Greer is known for his old soul sound. The native Texan and now-Nashville resident’s soulful-folk-gospel discography displays a deep affection for vintage spiritual songs, instinctively captured on his hymn recordings, Angel Band: The Hymn Sessions and Angel Band: The Christmas Sessions.
“Hymns are as true to my human experience as my own catalog of songs,” Greer shares. “In fact, if it hadn’t been for the impact of those indelible tunes, I may have never fallen in love with music, or been introduced to God.”
Showcasing collaborations with some of the top names in Americana, bluegrass and Gospel music, including Sonya Isaacs, Ginny Owens, The McCrary Sisters, Ron Block (of Alison Krauss & Union Station), Nashville legend Phil Madeira, indie singer-songwriter Sandra McCracken and iconic Grammy Award-winning recording artist Sandi Patty, The Hymn Sessions and Christmas Sessions recordings reached the Top 10 on Amazon and iTunes mainstream charts respectively.
A 2013 GMA Dove Award nominee for Instrumental Album of the Year for All Things Bright & Beautiful: Hymns for the Seasons, a collection Greer performed, produced and arranged exclusively for Parable Stores, Greer held the #1 spot on Nielsen Christian SoundScan’s Instrumental chart for 25 weeks.
As co-creator of the innovative “Hymns for Hunger” Tour along with Dove Award-winning singer/songwriter Cindy Morgan, Andrew has helped raise awareness and resources for hunger relief organizations in hundreds of cities across the country, including special performances at the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, Samaritan’s Purse and Amy Grant’s “Tennessee Weekend” benefit. Having collected tens of thousands of dollars, food and volunteer hours in support of America’s neighbors in need, Andrew say the tour is much more than a fundraiser. “It has been a perspective changer for us to observe how music can help address the need of our neighbors instantly. We hope this ongoing tour effort is one small part of bringing heaven to earth.”
In 2017, with a love for facilitating conversations that dig deep, Andrew co-created and co-hosts the video podcast, Dinner Conversations with Mark Lowry and Andrew Greer: Turning the Light on One Question at a Time. The conversations-centered series debuted at #1 on iTunes Religion & Spirituality chart and in the Top 10 Overall charts, and is now syndicated on television nationwide.
Carrying on his affinity for meaningful conversations in a spiritual context, Andrew’s stories have appeared in publications like Christianity Today and In Touch. And the prolific wordsmith has authored two books— Transcending Mysteries: Who is God, and What Does He Want From Us? (Thomas Nelson) co-authored with Ginny Owens, and Winds of Heaven, Stuff of Earth: Spiritual Conversations Inspired by the Life and Lyrics of Rich Mullins (Worthy Publishing).
When not on the road, Andrew enjoys his home in Franklin, TN.
NASHVILLE, Tenn.—Tune My Heart...Songs of Rest & Reflection (Lucid Artists/MA’M Recordings), a soundtrack for personal moments of peaceful worship from Andrew Greer & Friends, is now available at Parable Christian Stores nationwide, as well as via Apple Music and other major digital platforms.
