Call in to speak with the host
Join us this week on Christian Devotions SPEAK UP! as Scott McCausey continues music month with one of the most prolific modern-day hymn composers, Keith Getty.
Keith and Kristyn Getty met in Belfast, Ireland when they began songwriting together. They were married in 2004, and two years later they recorded their first project as a couple in the United Kingdom and Nashville, TN. In 2007, they made the journey overseas to America and lived in Ohio for three years as they began their professional career. They found their permanent home in Nashville in July of 2010. In 2011, the Gettys welcomed a new addition to their family when their daughter, Eliza Joy, was born.
The Gettys have released four albums and have garnered incredible success in six short years that include an acclaimed repertoire of 21st century hymns and one of their most impactful live performances. The couple has toured extensively, including with Joy – an Irish Christmas concert tour, which has played many of the nation’s major concert halls, reaching over 60,000 people in two years. They have also appeared at Franklin Graham crusades, the GMA Dove Awards, The Third Lausanne Conference on World Evangelization, as well as feature performances at London’s Royal Albert Hall, the legendary Grand Ole Opry, and with many other noted platforms.
One of Keith’s most popular compositions, In Christ Alone, was co-written with Stuart Townend and released in 2001. The song was well received that year but continues to grow in popularity, remaining the #1 most-sung-hymn in the UK since 2006 (CCLI) and finding position among the top 20 songs in the United States, Canada, and Australia.
