Hailed as one of the most influential songwriters of this generation, Redman also received a third GRAMMY nod this year for Best Contemporary Christian Music Song as a songwriter on the song, White Flag written with Chris Tomlin, Jason Ingram, and Matt Maher. The song is from the live album Passion:W.
