Nashville, TN —  Gold and Platinum selling Gospel/Jazz Pianist, NBC/Bravo reality TV star, private pilot and pastor Ben Tankard is living a Full Tank Life.  The godfather of Gospel Jazz was recently inducted into the Stellar Awards Honors Hall of Fame at the 2018 Stellar Awards in March.  Tankard’s honor by The Stellar Awards exemplifies his lifetime of achievements in the Gospel Music industry as an artist, musician and producer.

The 15-time Stellar Award winner has earned numerous awards and accolades on his recent 3-Volume FULL TANK gospel/jazz CD and his best-selling, hardback, self-help book The Full Tank Life: Fuel Your Dreams-Ignite Your Destiny.

Tankard is now taking flight across the country this spring and summer on a whirlwind book and cd tour to empower everyone to live a Full Tank Life!  His The Full Tank Life: Fuel Your Dreams, Ignite Your Destiny book was named an Essence Magazine Inspirational Book of the Year and is available now in hardback, paperback, ebook and audiobook versions (published by FaithWords / Hachette Publishing).

“Jewel and I are super excited for the great things that God has done for us in music, ministry, TV and business,” Tankard shares.  “We are eager to reach back and help others by coming to their cities to be an encouragement.”

With tour co-sponsor SHELL AVIATION on board to provide a “Full Tank” of aircraft fuel, The Tankards are flying their airplanes into smaller communities to minister at churches and for organizations that would not normally be able to afford to bring an A-List artist, author or television personality to their city.  “We are delighted to have Subway, Walmart and Shell Aviation in our corner,” states Tankard.  “We are only planning to travel into fifty more cities with our 2-hour Full Tank Life Tour event before we start shooting season four of The Tankards TV show later this year.”

Most of the Tankard’s Full Tank Life Tour dates will be FREE to the public via corporate sponsors.  Each tour date will consist of a meet and greet, a mini-concert, a life inspiring seminar and a book signing with Ben and his wife Jewel.
