Rush Concerts and Texas Arms of Love are excited to once again be producing Texas Takeover Tour. Entering its third year, the tour was met with tremendous success with CROWDER in 2018 and MercyMe in 2017.

Tenth Avenue North (stylized as tenth avenue north) is an American contemporary Christian music (CCM) band from West Palm Beach, Florida that takes its name from an east-west road in Palm Beach County. The group was formed while members attended Palm Beach Atlantic University. It features Mike Donehey on vocals and acoustic guitar, Jeff Owen on electric guitar and backup vocals, Ruben Juarez III on bass guitar and backup vocals, Jason Jamison on drums and Brendon Shirley on keyboard. The band has released five studio albums.

Tenth Avenue North released three independent albums and an EP before its major label debut. Its debut album, Over and Underneath, was released on May 20, 2008, on Reunion Records, and the band began a tour in promotion of the album near that time. The song "Love Is Here" hit the Top 20 on the U.S. Contemporary Christian Music chart, and reached No. 3 by June 21, 2008. It spent 13 weeks on Billboard's Christian Songs chart, peaking at No. 3. and ended 2008 as the 12th most-played song on Christian Hit Radio according to R&R magazine's Christian CHR chart for the year.

The band's next single, "By Your Side", was released in late August 2008 and eventually reached No. 1 on Christian CHR radio in 2009; according to R&R's chart, it had been in that position for three weeks by February 13, 2009. It spent 48 weeks on the Billboard Christian Songs chart, peaking at No. 2. It also won the GMA Dove Award for Song of the Year at the 41st award ceremony in April 2010. "Hold My Heart" was released as a single in 2009 and spent 44 weeks on the Christian Songs chart, peaking at No. 4.

"Healing Begins" the first single from their next album, was released on March 2, 2010, and spent 29 weeks on the Billboard Christian Songs chart. The Light Meets The Dark, the complete album, came out on May 11, 2010. The band performed at First Baptist Church of West Palm Beach on May 14, 2010 to promote the new album.

On March 1, 2011, the band released Tenth Avenue North Live: Inside and In Between – The Shows, The Songs, The Story, a live album featuring video footage of concerts, video journals about the message behind the music, and live recordings of six of the band's biggest hits.

Land of Color started when two singer/song writers Gary Rea and Thomas Ewing met in the mountains of Montana in 2015. Before the band started, they were both worship leaders and solo artist in their own right but they feel like the Lord brought them together to create something that is unique and greater than the sum of the parts. Gary was born and raised in South Africa and Thomas is from Colorado and their different cultural and musical backgrounds have resulted in a unique sound that is a blend of African rhythms, singable melodies and tight harmonies.

The guys talk about how the band was birthed out of community and that it was at family gatherings in the early days of their friendship that they would grab their guitars and start writing songs. “The songs came quickly and easily” says Thomas “and they were simply an overflow of what the Lord was doing in our lives individually and as a community.” In 2016, they decided to record an album of the songs that they had been writing under the name HOLY MNTN and before long they were getting invites from all over the country for them to perform their music.

They recently changed their name to Land Of Color and just signed a recording contract with Remade Records, an imprint of Provident Music and are going on tour with Tenth Avenue North this spring. They have also now teamed up with Gresham Hill Management to help them navigate this exciting new journey.
