â€œIâ€™m so honored to have been invited to share the stage with Jeremy Camp,â€ says Gray.Â â€œNot only is he one of the most successful artists in Christian music, but heâ€™s also a man with a compelling story who has known brokenness â€“ a theme that a lot of my music speaks to.Â We expect it to be a great tour and Iâ€™m so happy to be a part of it.Â The only problem I can foresee is that heâ€™s pretty buff and itâ€™s going to make me feel like I need to start working out.Â Shoot.Â Iâ€™m also looking forward to hanging out with The Afters and Chasen.Â What a great line-up!â€
â€œBut most of all Iâ€™m grateful to get to be the voice of World Vision on this tour and advocate for the poorest of the poor children in the world,â€ Gray continues.Â â€œThe recession that has touched so many of us in several ways impacts the poor the most and itâ€™s my great privilege to bring their story to our audiences.Â We anticipate that this will be a great evening â€“ both with a solid musical line-up and with a lot of heart.Â God will be worshipped and lives will be changed.â€
Speaking Louder Than Before 2010 Tour begins as Grayâ€™s second single, â€œMore Like Falling In Love,â€ is going for adds at Christian radio.Â Gray has been traveling the country on radio visits that started in 2009 and continues through January 2010.Â The song is from Grayâ€™s current CD, Everything Sad Is Coming Untrue, which was rated as #8 in CCMâ€™s Top Ten best faith-based albums from last year.Â Matt Conner says, Most unheralded songwriter in the entire industry shines again.Â Other media outlets have heralded the release with Worship Leader Magazine saying, Grayâ€™s songs donâ€™t really work as background music, they demand to be listened to and considered. And PowerSource Magazine adding, Strong stuff from a strong and very creative Christian singer and songwriter â€“ Jason Gray.
Â Gray has become a popular performer on the tour circuit, as 2009 featured Gray on the Sanctus Real tour that launched in September.Â In December, Gray joined labelmates, Downhere and Lanaeâ€™ Hale, for the annual fifteen-city Bethlehem Skyline Tour that was sponsored by Centricity Music.Â
Grayâ€™s debut CD on Centricity Music, All The Lovely Losers, was heralded as one of the top releases in 2007.Â Media outlets embraced the project and Gray from the start with coverage in CCM Magazine, ChristianMusicToday.com, Charisma, Christian Retailing, Worship Leader Magazine, JesusFreakHideout.com, Home Life Magazine, and Focus on the Familyâ€™s national radio show, Weekend Magazine.Â This project was followed with Acoustic Storytime that showcased live acoustic performances of previously released songs from concerts in Minnesota and California.Â Gray is known for his quick-witted humor while delivering powerful messages about perseverance rather than perfection.
