Need You Now, the album, has received rave reviews and incredible fan support. The title track received early confirmation from radio, hitting the #1 spot on the Billboard Christian CHR chart for 5 weeks in a row, and (sales chart?) Her new single “One Drop” has been getting early support, debuting this week on the Billboard Christian Hot AC/CHR chart at number 23.

Plumb explains, “I am SO excited to officially announce the “Need You Now” tour, which also happens to be my very first headlining tour. I have been off the road for some time now, starting a family…and now is the perfect time to come back. I can’t imagine a better album than Need You Now to make all this happen. It’s an honor to be sharing the stage with two of my favorite artists, Josh Wilson and Mikeschair. Plus, now my kiddos are old enough to work…they can count t-shirts…or something. Ha! See you this fall!”
