Cory Asbury:
'I Had to Become a Father to Learn How to be A Son'

  Cory Asbury told his fans that his current Reckless Love single is the introduction of his personal story.
  It has reached #1 of Billboard's Contemporary Christian Music charts.
  Israel Houghton has also recorded the song, which has also hit the top 10 on the gospel music charts.

  "The beginning. The genesis. An innocent little boy with goofy, spiky hair and not a care in the world. Just a little kid. A son. No worries. No wounds. Carefree and confident in the perfect little world my parents provided for me," on the Bethel Music Instagram page.

  "I had to become a father to learn how to be a son -
In many ways, the Reckless Love single cover was the introduction to my story.

  Then the full-length album cover is my life coming full circle. On the journey from boyhood to manhood there were a million cracks in the road. But somehow the grace of God swooped in with wings otherworldly and carried me safely over each one. And finally, those mighty wings set me down in a broad place.
  Now I'm a father to my own little boy. And somehow, in so becoming, I'm a little child again. Fully free and fully alive in my Father's eyes. The brokenness didn't break me. No, we rewrote the story in crimson ink. And I dance again like a little boy. Nothing between us. Innocent and free just like You always wanted. And I realize I've always been the dream of Your heart. A son."

  The album is the organic, soulful discovery whole-hearted telling of an essential story in scripture: a father's desire for connection with the ones he made, knows and relentlessly loves.

  In its first week, ending Feb. 1, Reckless earned 11,000 equivalent album units, according to Nielsen Music. Of that sum, 8,000 were via traditional sales.

  For Asbury, the 10-song set marks his first solo appearance on Top Christian Albums.

  Cory grew up in the mountains of North Carolina where he developed a deep love for music and songwriting. He started leading worship at his local church when he was just 14 years-old. From that place, Asbury launched into full-time worship ministry at the International House of Prayer in Kansas City January 1, 2005.

  While most of his time was spent in the Prayer Room (a 24/7 worship room), Cory's 8-year journey at IHOP-KC took him all over the US and to many other parts of the world, including Asia, the UK, and Canada. Asbury is also a featured worship leader at IHOP-KC's annual Onething conference, a gathering of 25,000 young adults that takes place at Bartle Hall every December.

  During his time at IHOP-KC, Cory's songwriting proliferated, and he released two full-length records, Holy and Let Me See Your Eyes. He has also been featured on a number of IHOP-KC and Bethel Music live compilations. Bethel Music released its third album with Cory in the fall of 2017, Starlight.

  Cory was featured on the collective's "Have it All" album. His previous solo releases include worship anthems such as "Where I Belong," "So Good to Me," "Always Faithful" and "Jesus, Let Me See Your Eyes."

  Asbury continues to lead worship regionally and internationally at various worship conferences and events.

  Cory carries a passion to lead people into encounters with the love of the Father. His voice and songs create an atmosphere of worship charged with both the power and peace of God. His prophetic worship style is marked by rich spontaneous moments and tenderness in God's presence. Cory remains dedicated to a lifestyle of prayer and fasting.

  Meanwhile, the Reckless title track lead single, which was released in the fall of 2017, jumped into the top 10 on Hot Christian Songs (which blends airplay, streaming and sales data), giving Asbury his first top 10.

  "Reckless" entered Christian Streaming Songs at No. 10 (1.1 million U.S. streams), giving Asbury his maiden top 10 on that tally, as well. The song also surges by 67 percent to 2 million audience impressions and darts 33-27 on Christian Airplay.

  On December 21st of 2016, Cory and his family transitioned to Kalamazoo, Michigan to join Radiant Church where he now serves as Worship Pastor. Cory is married to his wife, Anna, who also shares a gift for music and prophetic worship. They have two beautiful children, Gabriel and Lily.
