Crabb, previously part of the Crabb Family Band, is a Grammy Award and 21-time Dove Award winning artist, receiving accolades and wins in “Best Artist,” “Best Male Vocalist” and “Song of the Year” categories.

A native of Beaver Dam, Kentucky, Crabb rose to prominence singing with his siblings as the Crabb Family. The musically progressive family band broadened the scope of southern gospel music and became one of the most successful groups in the genre. Jason Crabb released his first solo album in 2009, and it earned him his first Grammy the following year.

Crabb is also an actor and author. He shared his life story in the book, “Trusting God to Get you Through” and has written a series of successful children’s books. To honor Jason Crabb, his hometown of Beaver Dam recently named the road adjacent to their new amphitheater after him – “Jason Crabb Drive.”
