Jay DeMarcus and Jason Crabb Premiere “Strange Way To Save The World” Live on FOX & Friends

Performance Celebrates 25th Anniversary of Iconic Christmas Classic; Available Now On All Digital and Streaming Outlets

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (December 11, 2020) – This morning, Jay DeMarcus (Rascal Flatts) and Jason Crabb debuted “Strange Way To Save The World,” their new Red Street Records single release, on the hit morning show, FOX & Friends.
Due to COVID restrictions, DeMarcus and Crabb had to broadcast via Skype from DeMarcus’ home in Nashville, TN to the FOX studios in New York City.
“I’ve wanted to be on FOX & Friends for as long as I can remember,” said Crabb. “So, to get to share this moment with Jay and to sing such an amazing song that celebrates the true reason for the season – the birth of Jesus – was very special. It was an honor to share the joy of Christ with Ainsley, Brian, Steve, and the FOX & Friends viewers.”
The release celebrates the 25th anniversary of the Christmas classic written by Don Koch, Dave Clarke and Mark Harris. The song was originally performed by iconic Christian vocal group, 4Him, and released in 2000.
“I’ve always loved this song, and I’m so honored and proud to have been able to record it with Jason Crabb,” says Jay DeMarcus. “He is as good as it gets when it comes to powerful voices and I couldn’t be more grateful for his willingness to do this with me. This timeless masterpiece was written by my good friends; Don Koch, Mark Harris and Dave Clark, and it is truly one for the ages.”
“It so great to hear this awesome new version of a song that I was a part of writing almost 30 years ago,” said Mark Harris, member of 4Him and co-writer of the song. “Jay and Jason have done a great job of capturing the heart behind “A Strange Way to Save the World”.
I hope this reminds everyone once again of the simple, yet amazing way Christ came to the world.
