Centricity Update 5/27

Posted May 27, 2011 by in Uncategorized

Hello from the land of cicadas. If you don’t live in the south this is what you are missing.
It’s the official beginning of summer. I know here in Nashville the humidity is raising with the temperature. Let’s all thank God of for the wonderful Willis Carrier. With him our lives would be much more pungent.
Ah yes, the world keeps spinning on. This week is the end of schools here in Nashville, which is filled with graduation ceremonies and baccalaureates. I know y son will be finishing up his high school days this weekend. I am filled with mixed emotions as I recall first days of school while moving towards the final days. Sigh….
On to the updates…
Radio Update:

Did you have the chance to check out episode 1 of CentricityU? If not you should for episode two is coming next week and you don’t want  to start out next week behind. Here is the link: http://www.youtube.com/centricityU

You must watch it; there will be no regrets.  And be watching next week for the next episode.

It was a great first week of adds for “Let Me Rediscover You” from Downhere with 18 adds. This is the most they have ever received on add date. Really good beginning.


The Aaron Shust single, “My Hope Is In You” went out to radio last week and the initial response is quite positive. It goes for adds on June 10 so we have a few weeks of prep work before adds come in.
