RayLynn Records’ flagship worship artist Kyle Sherman is slated to open for GRAMMY ® nominated artist and Dove Award winner Francesca Battistelli on her new spring tour titled “Hundred More Years.” Sherman will be accompanied by pop-rock group The Afters and The Outcome.
The tour will kick off in Amarillo, Texas on March 21 and carry through to May 5, wrapping the spring leg in Bellefontaine, Ohio. The musical acts will entertain audiences across the country including those in Ft. Wayne, Ind., Montgomery, N.Y. and Madison, Wis. (See tour dates below).
“I have been a fan of Francesca Battistelli and The Afters for years now,” says Sherman. “I have so much respect for both of them. I am completely stoked to be on tour with these amazing artists!”
Sherman will perform selections from his debut album Hear Me, which includes his latest single “The Greatest Tear;” a song that he calls his “ultimate love song.” Written by Bob Simpson, co-founder of RayLynn Records and country singer-songwriter Mark Collie (Tim McGraw, Martina McBride and Garth Brooks) “The Greatest Tear” tells the story of eternal love and how God felt the day His son Jesus was crucified.
Since the Ft. Worth Texas-based singer/songwriter made his album debut, he has toured with some of his personal favorites including Phil Wickham and Shane & Shane, and has appeared on Daystar’s “Celebration,” on GMC online, New Release Tuesday, AllAccess.com, Baptist Standard and more.

ABOUT RAYLYNN RECORDS
RayLynn Records was founded in 2011 by Bob and Janice Simpson, co-owners of The Texas Rangers. The Texas businessman has struck billion-dollar deals and turned numerous failing companies around, including Major League Baseball’s Texas Rangers, whom he purchased out of bankruptcy months before the organization advanced to its first World Series. Together, The Simpson’s founded RayLynn Records (the name derives from a combination of Bob and Janice’s middle names, respectively) after struck a relationship with Kyle Sherman, who at the time was serving as a worship leader at Lifechurch.TV. Impressed by Kyle’s musical talent and raw passion, Bob approached him about recording an album and teamed him up with legendary country singer-songwriter, producer and friend Mark Collie.
