Phillips, Craig & Dean
Phillips, Craig and Dean is a contemporary Christian music trio composed of three pastors, Randy Phillips, Shawn Craig, and Dan Dean. Since forming in 1991, they have released 12 albums and earned 18 No. 1 radio singles. The group has received nine GMA Dove Award nominations, and sold over two million units, receiving two Dove Awards for participating in the special event album My Utmost for His Highest in 1996, and also took the 2010 Dove Award for Inspirational Album of the Year, Fearless.
In 1991, Randy Phillips went to several record companies with a solo album he had. StarSong, a Nashville-based company, urged him to form a male vocal group. He then called two friends who also happened to be pastors—and had also recently made solo albums.
In recent years, they've shed their contemporary Christian roots and focused on more worship oriented music. On that line, they've released their latest albums. It was through Phillips' weekly TV program that Phillips, Craig & Dean discovered what would be the title track for their 2004 CD Let The Worshipers Arise. The praise & worship-themed show sought to discover the best song from an unknown songwriter with Michael Ferrin of Texarkana, Texas taking home the top prize. Once the judging was over, the top five winners came to Austin and the winning song debuted on an Awakening broadcast. "When I heard him sing it live it was one of those moments," Phillips recalls. "I think when people hear it, it’s going to cause them to reach out to Christ with a renewed passion like they’ve never had before."
Since all three singers are full-time pastors and make it a priority to be at their respective churches in Sunday services, they have declared a virtual moratorium on Saturday night concerts. They have performed at the conventions of the National Religious Broadcasters and Christian Booksellers Association, appeared at Moody Church, played at Promise Keepers rallies, and recorded music for the National Day of Prayer.
Nashville, TN ---- It was a whirlwind of street week activity for Phillips, Craig and Dean in support of their new album, Above It All. The Dove award-winning trio taped an appearance on TBN’s Praise The Lord in Nashville, TN that received a standing ovation from the audience, followed by two tapings for Daystar Television in Dallas, TX.
Nashville, TN - Phillips, Craig and Dean have reached another major milestone in their career, as their No. 1 single, “Revelation Song,” has received RIAA certified Gold status. The honor is bestowed on any recording that has sold 500,000 units. The single was No. 1 for 17 weeks on Billboard’s AC Monitored chart and also reached No. 1 on Billboard’s National Christian Audience chart, AC Indicator chart and Soft AC chart.
