Hello friends!

Some big news from our corner of the world…

Our First Top 10 Hit!
First off, it’s with gratitude that I get to tell you that I have my first Top 10 hit with “More Like Falling In Love”!  There are a number of different charts that mean different things, but the good news is that my song has shown up on all of them.  It was #4 on the AC Indicator chart a few weeks ago, it’s #9 on AC Monitored, and #2 on AC recurrent.  If all of that sounds confusing, let’s just say that the song has been embraced by radio and is being played for millions of people who’ve never been exposed to my ministry before. We couldn’t be more grateful.

Special thanks to you for always rooting for us. Again, if you’re hearing the song in your area, I’d be ever so thankful if you’d let your radio station know how much you like hearing it – it makes such a difference for us when they hear from you.

Ever wondered what kind of thinking goes into a song like “More Like Falling In Love” or what it’s all about?  Well wonder no more! I’m writing a line by line blog series that you can read here: http://www.jesusfreakhideout.com/jfhblog/template_archives_cat.asp?cat=35

Our Fall Tour Announcement!
The other big news that we wanted to let you know about is that Taya and I have been confirmed to be a part of…. Drum roll please…. Wait for it……

The Michael W. Smith, Tobymac, Third Day, Max Lucado tour this Fall.  Yep, you read that right.  This is a wonderful opportunity for us to share my music and ministry before thousands of new people each night and we are so grateful to not only be sharing the stage with these respected artists, but to do so as part of a tour sponsored by World Vision where we get to advocate for the poorest of the poor.  It’s going to be a great night!  I’ll be opening the evening with a few songs and Taya will serve as a representative for World Vision.

Dates will be posted soon at http://www.jasongraymusic.com (click on the tour section).

Before then, though, there are plenty of opportunities to catch a JG concert – including Atlantafest!  I just got asked to be a part of their Late Night Acoustic stage on June 18th at 11 PM in Atlanta, GA.  Think of it as a nice cool down after Family Force 5’s set :-). Check my advertisement I filmed for Atlantafest: preparing for the awesomeness.

Our Very Own iTunes App!
We’re also excited to let you know about another way to keep up to date with our adventures via the Jason Gray App for the iPod and iPhone.  It features tour dates, youtube videos, blogs, and a couple of fun puzzles – and best of all, it’s free!  Here’s the link: http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/jason-gray-official-app/id371206594?mt=8

(It’s amusing to us all here in the Gray family that for some reason iTunes lists the App as rated 12+ for “mild profanity/crude humor”; “…suggestive and mature themes”; and “…mild horror/fear themes” – they must be referring to the youtube videos featuring Gus 😉

Looking Ahead
It’s also my great privilege to participate in the Rabbit Room’s 2010 “Hutchmoot” – a retreat where I get to be a featured speaker along with my Rabbit Room compatriots and keynote speaker Walter Wangerin Jr.  Wangerin is one of my favorite authors and Christian thinkers and I’m excited to get to be a part of this weekend.  This year’s registration filled up unpredictably fast, but I’ll be sure to let you know about next year’s Hutchmoot early so you can have a chance to sign up!

Meanwhile, I’m hard at work on the next batch of songs that we hope to record this Fall and have ready for a Spring 2011 release.  Before that, you can look for two songs that I recorded for a Christmas project that will release this Fall.

Thanks so much for your support, we are so grateful for you and that you care enough to be a part of our email community.  Hope to see you soon!

Jason Gray
