Glow In The Dark

If you've never hung out with Jason Gray then you've missed out on someone special. I have the honor of meeting him recently at his show in Green Bay, WI (home of the BEST team in the NFL. GO PACK GO!). I was blown away by the way he commanded the crowd and the way he sang and played. More than that, I was blown away by the depth of truth which came out of his mouth when he spoke. He spoke boldly and said many things that folks would likely encourage him not to say if they were coaching him through his performance as they were tough things...things he joked would cause him to receive many angry emails. However, the crowd loved every minute of it. When you tell the truth in honesty and true Christ-like humility, it's infectious. Yes, it can cause a stir but we NEED to be stirred up from time to time. 

In addition to putting on a great show, Jason is the same dude off the stage. He's the real deal. You can tell he's lived some life...has suffered. He radiates Jesus. 

I'm honored to be able to bring his new single "Glow In The Dark" to Christian radio alongside the team at Centricity Music. Jason is an artist the Christian music community needs. He speaks the truth with love and boldness and is more concerned with that and loving folks well than he is with the game surrounding his career. I will fight for dudes like this as long as I can.
