“Maybe It’s Ok” Reaches RIAA Gold Certification
On Tour With Casting Crowns This Spring
Nashville, Tenn. (February 24, 2023) — Curb | Word Entertainment’s We Are Messengers captures the essence of home on fresh EP, Hills Of Tyrone, dropping today — listen HERE. The band also celebrates a major milestone as “Maybe It’s Ok” — from their sophomore album, Power — achieves an RIAA Gold certification.
Hills Of Tyrone is especially close to the heart of front man Darren Mulligan, who holds songwriting credit on each of the collection’s deeply personal tracks. The intimate and sparsely produced project, on which Kyle Williams (TobyMac, Brandon Heath) helms production with additional help from Ben Shive (Ellie Holcomb, MercyMe), brings the warmth of Mulligan’s native Ireland to life with seven original songs honoring family, legacy and a place he will always belong. With introspective lyrics that find the lead singer reflecting on his roots, the EP boasts tender love songs dedicated to his wife, wisdom for his young children and stories about his lineage woven into a musical tapestry that transports listeners to the Emerald Isle.
The collective is also excited to celebrate the RIAA Gold certification of “Maybe It’s Ok.”
“The song has blown all of my expectations out of the water,” front man Darren Mulligan shares of the track. “‘Maybe It’s Okay’ was written for someone I love and has reached millions around the world, giving them hope to hold on when everything hurts. I am a very thankful man and so grateful for our Curb | Word Entertainment family and partners in the music industry who have championed this band and this song.”
In addition to releasing Hills Of Tyrone today, the group recently sent “Wholehearted” to radio. The title-cut made its radio debut during a K-LOVE First event and serves as the third single from the band’s third studio effort. This spring, We Are Messengers will bring songs spanning their entire discography to cities across the country as they once again join Casting Crowns on “The Healer Tour.” The 33-market trek, which also features new artist Ben Fuller, begins Mar. 2, 2023, in Myrtle Beach, S.C., and wraps May 6, 2023, in Beaver Dam, Ky.
