Canton Junction announces departure of Aaron Crabb

NASHVILLE, Tenn.—Dove Award-winning Difference Media recording artist Canton Junction today announced the departure of Aaron Crabb. An original member of the acclaimed quartet, Crabb will focus on pastoring Restoring Hope Church in Hendersonville, Tennessee, with his wife Amanda. The couple founded the church earlier this year.

“It goes without saying that Aaron Crabb and Canton Junction were an excellent example of ‘good things coming together,’” said Canton Junction founding member Matthew Hagee. “His contribution to the group is beyond measure and we know that Aaron has many more good things happening with his family at Restoring Hope Church. We are excited for him and Amanda and look forward to all God is going to do through them. It is a privilege to have Aaron & Amanda in the Difference Media family of artists, and we look forward to our continued relationship with the Crabb family, who are a blessing to all who know them.”

“To everything there is a season, and singing with this wonderful group of men has been a great one,” said Aaron Crabb. “I am honored to have been able to be a small part of the beginning of what God is doing—and will continue to do—in Canton Junction. Now I have moved forward to the tune of a new season with a calling that God has placed upon my heart to pastor a church in Hendersonville, Tennessee. I will continue to support these incredible people who are—and will always be—family.”

Canton Junction’s self-titled debut, featuring the #1 singles “Hold On” and “Sweeter As The Days Go By,” garnered a Dove Award for Southern Gospel Album of the Year, while the group was named Favorite Southern Gospel New Traditional Quartet at the 2014 Singing News Fan Awards.
