Featuring some of Carnes’ hits like “Run To The Father” and “Nothing Else,” his recent No. 1 single “Ain’t Nobody” and the Carnes/ Hastings hit “Take You At Your Word”, these nights are going to be really special.”
“These nights are full of worship and full of the presence of God,” shares Cody Carnes. “We had too much fun on the first run, so we had to add more dates! So excited to be bringing this night to seven more beautiful cities! My friend Benjamin William Hastings will be leading his incredible songs as well. It’s going to be amazing.”
Last year, Carnes released his first-ever live project, God Is Good. Already in his career, Carnes has been nominated three times for a GRAMMY Award and currently has 15 songs on the CCLI Top 2000 chart as a songwriter.

Since releasing his solo label debut project in 2017, Carnes has continued to impact the worship music genre with powerful church anthems like “Nothing Else,” “Run To the Father,” and “Christ Be Magnified.” In 2020, he released his studio album, Run To The Father, which earned him his first GRAMMY Award nomination. He also received GRAMMY nominations for “The Blessing” and the album The Blessing (Live) for the 63rd and 64th Awards, as well as “The Blessing” being named “Song of the Year” (2021) and “Worship Song of the Year” (2020) at the GMA Dove Awards.

ABOUT BENJAMIN WILLIAM HASTINGS: Benjamin William Hastings is a Northern Irish singer, and songwriter, raised on the streets of Belfast, and spent the better part of his twenties in Sydney, Australia. Since featuring on “So Will I (100 Billion X),” he’s written a whole lot of songs which, if you add them all together, have been streamed over 500 million times (not quite a 100 billion but we’re on the way!!). Recently Hastings and his family moved to Los Angeles, California where he and his wife Jessa Hastings (Author of the novel; Magnolia Parks) are hard at work on their respective crafts. His latest solo offering explores the ongoing wrestle of exercising faith (among other things) and, to be honest, it may be a little more honest than you’re used to hearing. But his hope is that somewhere in its humanity, you find something divine. After all, sometimes you gotta lie in the dirt just to stare at the stars.
