Launched seven years ago, Centricity Music reached new milestones in 2012.
"2012 was a banner year for Centricity Music," said Caren Siedle, general manager of the Nashville-based label. "We started the year with Aaron Shust's single 'My Hope Is In You' holding onto the No. 1 spot from 2011 for eight more weeks, and then had our first rock chart-topper as Remedy Drive's single 'Resuscitate Me' stayed at No. 1 for five weeks.
"In addition, we had two Top 5 singles from Jason Gray with 'Remind Me Who I Am' and 'Good To Be Alive,' while we introduced our new band, Unspoken, whose debut song, 'Who You Are,' ended the year being selected as one of iTunes 'Best of 2012' for Best Song in the Christian/Gospel category," she added. "We ended the year with Andrew Peterson's 'Light for the Lost Boy' ranking No. 10 on USA Today's multi-format Top Ten Albums listing for 2012, and then had eight of the 10 singles Centricity released last year making Billboard's year-end tally with seven of the songs making the Top Ten."
Shust is currently in the studio with producer Ed Cash working on his new studio project, which will be released in the summer. In March, Shust will begin a spring tour with Mark Schultz, which runs through May.
Gray will go on a spring tour with Peterson, then head into the studio for his next project, which will be released later this year. Remedy Drive will again hit the road in mid-January.
