Centricity Update 2/2
Another busy week in the Centricity world as we prepare for the three releases coming down the road. It is amazing how far in advance you start putting the plan together. This week was filled with conversations about album covers, photo shoots, promo tours and marketing budgets (the part we all hate but have to live with).
Any ideas of what you would like in the marketing of Aaron, Downhere or Jason in this coming year? Speak now while the plans are still fluid.
On to the latest updates…
The story continues at radio with Jason Gray heading towards the top 10, Andrew P still getting a load of spins, and both Sixteen Cites and Me In Motion entered the CHR chart. We still have 2 songs on the AC monitored chart, 4 on the AC indicator, 2 on CHR and 3 on INSPO.

This is not only my story. Yesterday I had the urge to pray for my friend. I prayed for peace from God to her, and I somehow knew she needed God at the time. Afterwards I knew I had to text her, so I did. I told her that I prayed for her and that I hoped she was well. She replied to say that she had just gotten into a horrible accident and was on her way to the hospital…
