10 Years ago this month, Mark Schultz's Live - A Night Of Stories & Songs, debuted at No. 1 on SoundScan's Top Christian Music Video Chart. His fourth national release, the CD/DVD set, which includes live performance footage along with a Schultz-hosted documentary, additionally claimed Top 10 positions on Billboard's video chart and in SoundScan's category for Christian/Gospel albums.
Featuring Schultz' six No. 1 hits and other favorite songs along with a personal look at his rise to the spotlight from Colby, KS to Nashville, Mark Schultz Live - A Night Of Stories & Songs was filmed live before a sold-out crowd at the Marion Civic Center (Marion, IL) earlier in the Spring. The project further spotlights other timeless classics and two brand new songs, including the single, "I Am," which continues to climb at radio and this week garners the No. 2 INSP spot and a Top 10 AC position. Mark Schultz made his national debut in 2000 with the critically acclaimed release of his self-titled album.
In addition to six No. 1 singles, he has garnered multiple Dove Award nominations, two American Songwriter Awards and a BMI Christian "Song of the Year" Award for "Back In His Arms Again." As an independent artist, Schultz was one of the few artists to sell out a solo concert at Nashville's famed Ryman Auditorium.
Produced and Directed by Ken Carpenter for Franklin Films (I Am Produced by Peter Kipley), the project was filmed LIVE before a sold-out crowd at the Marion Civic Center (Marion, IL) on May 6, 2005. Experience the stories behind each of your favorite songs and get to know the people and scenarios resulting in six #1 hits, two brand new songs and other timeless classics from Mark's past three studio albums.
