Cory Asbury Helps Us Overcome Anxiety with "Misunderstood"

Cory Asbury

Multi-platinum selling, GRAMMY Award Nominee Cory Asbury has released a new song from his highly-anticipated fifth studio album, Pioneer. The song, "Misunderstood," incorporates moving steel guitar and piano, backing lyrics that speak to seasons of anxiety and depression and the outside pressures to be perfect through it all. This is the third song released from Pioneer, following "Kind" and "These Are the Days" which have both produced millions of streams in the few weeks they have been available. 

"A few years back, my wife went through an intense time of anxiety and postpartum depression," shares Asbury. "She wanted so badly to be "normal" in the middle of it all. I kept having to remind her, "It's ok to not be ok." We're all broken. Being perfect isn't the point of this whole "being human" experiment. I hope sharing this experience helps others not feel so alone in their journey to contentment."

On September 27th, Asbury will perform a very special record release show at City National Grove of Anaheim. Following that performance, Asbury will embark on the Texas Takeover Tour with special guest Brennley Brown. The nine-city headline tour will kick off in Houston on November 2nd and make its way across Texas before wrapping in Kilgore on November 12th. Tickets for Asbury's record release show and the Texas Takeover Tour are now on sale HERE.

Last month, Asbury announced his long awaited and highly anticipated fifth studio album, Pioneer, would be released on September 15th via BEC Recordings. Drawing influence from Nashville's music scene, Pioneer explores a new side of Asbury while maintaining honest and cutting lyrics that speak to the fragility of the human experience. For this record, Asbury co-wrote with a veritable who's-who in Nashville including Lori McKenna (Tim McGraw, Taylor Swift), Shane Stevens (Lady A, Walker Hayes), Tom Douglas (Kane Brown, Miranda Lambert), and Paul Mabury (Lauren Daigle, Chris Tomlin) to create a body of work that showcases his heart as an artist. Pre-order Pioneer on CD, Vinyl or digital platforms HERE.

Like many before him, multi-platinum selling singer/songwriter Cory Asbury got his start singing in church at 14 and by 21 was a full-time performer. His 2009 debut, Let Me See Your Eyes, formally launched his career and set the stage to a hard-earned record deal in 2015. Asbury's seminal album Reckless Love (2018), landed on the top of the Billboard charts, earning him two Dove Awards and a 2019 Grammy nomination. The title track, "Reckless Love," has been certified 3x Platinum, spent 18 weeks at #1, and earned Billboard, ASCAP, and BMI Christian Song of the Year honors. In 2019, Asbury released his follow up LP, To Love A Fool, featuring the Gold certified single "The Father's House." To date, Asbury has garnered 952 million domestic U.S. streams, 130 million video views, nearly 2.5 million monthly Spotify listeners, and over 2 billion audience impressions.
