Nashville-based Music City Management, helmed by industry professional Josh Petersen, has announced the addition of Centricity Music recording artist and songwriter Jason Gray to its artist roster. Gray, whose music and artistry has been touted as “perfect acoustic pop with the ability to gently turn a common phrase into a work of art” and is “one of the most profound and impactful artists Christian music has ever seen,” has had a very successful career to date. Achieving two No. 1 singles – “Nothing Is Wasted,” which held the No. 1 spot at radio for nine weeks, as well as “With Every Act of Love” which hit top ten on Billboard’s Christian Airplay Chart – Gray has also had five top five radio singles.
“Jason is one of the most talented and smart songwriters I have ever met,” shares Josh Petersen, Music City Management’s owner and president. “I couldn’t be more excited for our new journey together and look forward to helping him tell share his stories and deliver his songs to new audiences.”
Music City Management specializes in artist management, music distribution services, event promotion as well as brand management. Opening its doors in 2012, Gray is the second artist signed to Music City Managment. The company also represents world-renown vocalist and musician Marc Martel, whose voice was most recently featured in 2018’s 20th Century Fox Queen biographical film, “Bohemian Rhapsody,” which just won a Golden Globe for Best Motion Picture-Drama.
“I’ve known Josh Petersen since I was first signed with Centricity Records and he was part of the team that introduced me to radio stations and retailers all across the country,” Jason Gray shares. “I didn’t imagine that I would get to work with him again this closely, but I’m so excited that fate has brought our paths together for a new season of partnership. I feel lucky to get to chart a new course forward with my friend who also happens to be one of the most brilliant and energetic people I know.”
Gray was heard this past holiday season on Marc Martel’s version of “O Come All Ye Faithful,” which was the highest charting new Christmas radio single release, reaching No. 8 on the Billboard National Airplay chart for their last chart of 2018. Gray also headlined his annual Christmas tour, “Christmas Is Coming,” and was joined by Curb | Word artist Stars Go Dim.
