A song about knocking down walls of fear, Andrew Ripp's 'Jericho' has reached No. 1 on Billboard’s Christian Airplay.

"It’s wild how a two-year process of letting go of my dreams made room for new ones," says Andrew Ripp in an interview with The Christian Beat.

The song's lyrics are timely with many people battling fear during the worldwide pandemic. With Ripp's second try at a musical career, his fears are also falling away.

"In 2016 I intentionally stepped away from music for a while…maybe forever. I needed to find out who Andrew Ripp was without his guitar. This dream I find myself living in today is not the result of trying harder, but rather letting go completely. I’m having a blast and couldn’t be more grateful."

He has a new album, Evergreen, being released soon. There is no set date for the release at this time. 

Ripp will be joining NEEDTOBREATHE for three sold-out shows at The Caverns in Pelham, Tennessee March 12-14.
