On 10 May 2019, Keith and Kristyn Getty announced via their Facebook page an album named after the Christian worship hymn His Mercy Is More. The album features Getty Music partners Matt Papa and Matt Boswell and was released in August 2019.
In 2016, Keith and Kristyn Getty began work on their new album Facing a Task Unfinished. The album's title track is the hymn "Facing a Task Unfinished", which Keith & Kristyn were invited to re-write by OMF International from the original by Frank Houghton in 1931. On 21 February 2016, the Gettys led a global hymn-sing of the song, in which an estimated 1.1 million people sang the hymn in 100 countries. The album was recorded in Ocean Way Studios in Nashville, Tennessee. The album also features special guests Ladysmith Black Mambazo, Fernando Ortega, John Patitucci, and Chris Tomlin. The album was scheduled to release June 2016.
Keith & Kristyn Getty are a Northern Irish Christian duo, best known for writing many popular modern hymns with veteran English songwriter and worship leader Stuart Townend. Due to the success of "In Christ Alone", the duo has spearheaded the modern hymn genre. Other popular hymns include "The Power of the Cross", "The Lord Is My Salvation", "By Faith", and "Speak O Lord". The duo's hymns top CCLI rankings, national "most-loved" and "most-sung" lists, and are estimated to be sung by 100 million people in churches around the world each year. Many modern hymnals include their music, and his songs have also been covered by many musicians across the contemporary Christian, contemporary worship, and gospel genres, including Owl City, Newsboys, MercyMe, Natalie Grant, and Passion. The couple has also appeared on national television (CBS, PBS, BBC), most notably on Public Television in 2015 with their Christmas Music special, Joy—An Irish Christmas. They have appeared at numerous events and tours internationally with the recurring Hymns for the Christian Life and Irish Christmas tours. They also have performed at venues as diverse as London's Royal Albert Hall, Ryman Auditorium, Carnegie Hall, and The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts.
In reference to his song writing and musical performance, Keith Getty wrote in 2015: "I do not pretend to be qualified to write a theological treatise on this particular subject. Congregational singing is a holy act, and as I organize my thoughts, I hear my old pastor, Alistair Begg, reminding me that in our song worship, we have to be spiritually alive..."
2015's Joy—An Irish Christmas Tour took place in over 20 cities across the southeastern United States, including sold-out concerts at Carnegie Hall, the John F. Kennedy Center, The Schermerhorn Symphony Center, and The Kimmel Center. The Gettys were joined by guest artists John Patitucci and Sally Lloyd-Jones in New York, as well as Buddy Greene and Ricky Skaggs at The Fox Theatre and the Schermerhorn Symphony Center, with astronaut Butch Wilmore as a special guest at the tour's final stop in Nashville.
The Gettys were featured as a cover story on CBS Sunday Morning for their Easter 2015 (5 April) broadcast. CBS released this statement, "For the segment, which is titled In The Spirit, the Gettys were interviewed in their Nashville home by CBS News correspondent Tracy Smith and recorded while performing at the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville on St. Patrick's Day." CBS News reporter Tracy Smith focused on the backstory behind the popular hymn "In Christ Alone", which was originally written back in 2001 by Getty and Stuart Townend. In addition, Keith and Kristyn have made frequent appearances on BBC's Songs of Praise special.
In 2014, The Greengrass Sessions EP was released as a supplement containing additional songs used on the Hymns for the Christian Life tour. This was a limited edition EP that contained recordings of the live tour band.
This album developed into a touring Christmas show, which has matured each year, presenting opportunities for performances at many of Americas leading concert halls. "Irish Christmas" has an annual Carnegie Hall sell out show, and was presented at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts. Its popularity has led to numerous broadcasts, including on American Public Television through Detroit PBS. Coinciding with the tour, American Public Television stations aired Joy-An Irish Christmas nationally during the holiday season including broadcasts in at least 55 major U.S. television markets and to some 45+ million households. The 60-minute TV special, presented by Detroit Public Television, was taped in 2014 in the historic Tennessee Theatre in Knoxville, Tennessee. The concert was also released as a live album.
The Getty's Joy—An Irish Christmas music special was featured on Public Television across America November and December 2015, as well as on BBC One Northern Ireland in December 2015.
In the spring of 2013, the National Conference of The Gospel Coalition was held in Orlando, Florida, and was attended by more than 5,000 people from more than 40 countries and 49 of the United States. Keith and Kristyn Getty led the music at this event with traditional and modern hymns, including several selections from the Getty's well-known catalog. This became a live album, as well as a printed songbook.
Irish Christmas took a hiatus in 2013 as Keith and Kristyn awaited the birth of their second daughter. The tour returned to North America in 2014. There were an estimated 50,000 people who attended the 18 performances. The tour featured stops at notable venues including Winspear Opera House in Dallas, Texas and Connor Palace Theater in Cleveland, Ohio. The 2014 tour culminated in a Carnegie Hall sell out with Ricky Skaggs as a special guest.
In 2013, Keith and Kristyn embarked on the Hymns for the Christian Life Tour throughout North America. More than 40,000 people on a 22-city trek attended the tour. The Gettys performed at the Meyerson Symphony Center in Dallas, TX and Hamilton Place Theatre in Hamilton, Ontario. They also made appearances at several churches including David Jeremiah's Shadow Mountain Community Church in San Diego, California, and Charles Stanley's First Baptist Church in Atlanta, Georgia. Twelve cities on the tour were first-time appearances including the Getty's sold-out premiere performance in New York City.
In 2012, The Getty's released Hymns for the Christian Life, a collection of music that most strongly represented the Getty's move to Nashville, Tennessee. The album is deeply personal, both in terms of writing more hymns on how the gospel speaks to the issues of everyday life and moving away to a more acoustic musical style that blends the two cultures they live—Irish and American folk music.
The tour returned in December 2012, with more than 30,000 people and over 18 performances. The Gettys performed at several concert hall venues including Atlanta's Cobb Energy Performing Arts Center, which sold out.
The duo along with others toured the UK in 2012 during their The Northern Celtic Islands Tour. Over the course of three weeks, they appeared in ten concert halls, including the Liverpool Philharmonic Hall, Waterfront Hall, and Glasgow SECC Arena. Several of the performances were sold out weeks prior to the concert. Guest performers included Stuart Townend, New Scottish Choir and Orchestra, Jonathan Rea, New Irish Arts, and Dr. Noël Tredinnick.
The Gettys were invited to appear at The Cove and create Christmas music for an evening with George Beverly Shea and Cliff Barrows. Billy Graham was a speaker during the first evening of their performances. In 2011, Keith and Kristyn Getty released Joy: An Irish Christmas. The album was dedicated to their daughter, Eliza Joy, born that year.
By 2011, Joy—An Irish Christmas was developed into a full-length album and a monthlong concert tour. Their first tour included 18 performances with several sold-out shows, including a concert at Schermerhorn Symphony Center in Nashville, Tennessee.
In 2010, Tom Bledsoe invited Keith and Kristyn Getty to join a special Christmas celebration in with George Beverly Shea and Cliff Barrows. The event included Billy Graham as the headlining speaker. The Gettys prepared thirty minutes of music from their album Joy: An Irish Christmas for the first evening. Their segment was expanded to a fuller evening of music subsequently presented to a number of churches that year.
Keith & Kristyn also sponsor a compassion child, and in 2009 they travelled to Ecuador and met their sponsored child.
In 2008, Awaken the Dawn was the duo's sophomore album. The album was nominated in the 41st GMA Dove Awards for "Praise and Worship Album of the Year". Awaken the Dawn introduced a more "worship band" approach as Getty and Kristyn began to tour and present their music to an American audience. The album also collaborated with Grammy Award winning producer Phil Naish, the string arrangements of Rob Mathes (music producer of Kennedy Center Honors and Sting) and Nashville rhythm musicians. As a result of a total distribution of approximately 110,000 units, Awaken the Dawn was nominated for a Dove Award in 2009.
The album, "Awaken the Dawn" was nominated for a Dove award in 2008. "Hymns for the Christian Life" was also nominated for a Dove award in 2013.
After a total distribution of approximately 200,000 units, In Christ Alone was nominated for a Dove Award in 2007. "The Risen Christ", a choral collection based on the album, was also nominated for a Dove Award in 2009.
The duo's debut release was In Christ Alone, released in 2006. This record was a collection of Getty's best known ten hymns remade with Kristyn as the vocalist.
The song, "In Christ Alone" was number one on the CCLI UK charts by the year 2006, and was the number two song on the BBC charts in 2010. In Australia, it was the number two song in 2009. The British Hymn Society named "In Christ Alone" as one of the top 5 Hymns of All Time.
The couple met in 2002 after John Lennox introduced the two to each other. After dating for two years, the couple married on 16 June 2004 in Armagh. They have had four children: Eliza Joy in 2011, Charlotte Juliana in 2013, Grace Alexandra in 2015, and Tahlia Lennox in 2018.
In 2001, Getty and Stuart Townend wrote the song "In Christ Alone" with the purpose of creating a modern hymn that would explain the life of Christ. They released it on the Kingsway album New Irish Hymns, featuring vocalists Máire Brennan, Margaret Becker, and Joanne Hogg. The song gained popularity, and by 2005 it was named by a BBC Songs of Praise survey as the 9th best loved hymn of all time, and in their 2010 survey was named 2nd best hymn of all time. It hit number one on the United Kingdom CCLI charts by 2006, and in January 2009, it was still number one in the UK, number two in Australia, number seven in Canada, and number 15 in the United States. The British Hymn Society nominated "In Christ Alone" as one of the top 5 hymns of all time, and BBC One's "Songs of Praise" nominated "In Christ Alone" as one of the top 10 hymns in 2012.
