COMPASSION INTERNATIONAL PRESENTS
THE MARK SCHULTZ ‘ALL THINGS POSSIBLE’ 2013 TOUR

20-City Spring Tour Kicks Off March 15,
Features Special Guests Aaron Shust and Jonny Diaz
NASHVILLE, TN – January 23, 2013– Platinum-selling recording artist Mark Schultz is ready to hit the road this spring to headline the All Things Possible Tour, which will also feature special guest Dove Award-winning singer-songwriter Aaron Shust and Dove-nominated artist Jonny Diaz. Presented by Compassion International, the 20-city tour kicks off March 15, in Clearwater, Florida, and will head to approximately 20 cities throughout the Eastern U.S. during the months of March, April and May.
Schultz will be touring in support of his newest album All Things Possible, which features his signature craft of storytelling set to powerful, radio-friendly melodies. The album’s title track and first single became a No. 1 radio hit on Billboard’s Soft Ac/Inspo chart while simultaneously hitting the Top 10 on the Christian AC Monitored chart. “All Things Possible” was inspired by Schultz’ 3,500-mile bike ride across country to raise money for widows and orphans, and the album has garnered rave reviews from media outlets across the country.
Ticket buyers for the Mark Schultz All Things Possible Tour will have the option to purchase a special “VIP Experience” ticket, which includes early entry and premium concert seating, along with a pre-show Q&A session with Schultz, Shust and Diaz.

ABOUT MARK SCHULTZ 
Originally hailing from Colby, Kansas, Mark Schultz moved to Nashville to pursue his musical ambitions and found inspiration while working as a youth pastor. Schultz booked a show at the city’s famed Ryman Auditorium and with the overwhelming support of friends and family, the show was a sell-out. This virtually unheard-of feat for a new artist landed Schultz a record deal where he went on to sell over 1.3 million albums and garner 10 No. 1 singles to date. He has landed the top spot on Billboard magazine’s Christian Adult Contemporary Songwriter list and has been featured on “48 Hours” and “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition.” In 2011, Schultz released his first instrumental album, Renaissance and his first novella, titled “Letters From War,” based on the his hit song. His 2005 release, Mark Schultz Live: A Night of Stories & Songs, was certified Platinum by the R.I.A.A. and earned Schultz his first GMA Dove Award.

ABOUT AARON SHUST

Aaron Shust’s debut album for Centricity Music, This Is What We Believe led to one of the biggest songs of his career with the first single, “My Hope Is In You,” which stayed at the top of the AC Monitor chart for 14 weeks during 2011/2012. Shust continued to have major impact on the charts in 2012 with his single “Risen Today” reaching #17 on the AC Indicator chart. His current song “We Are Free” is #24 on the AC Monitored chart and #25 on the National Audience chart, and #9 on Billboard magazine’s Christian Songs Artist category and #10 for Christian AC Songs Artist. But success has been a mainstay for Shust, beginning when he exploded onto the Christian music scene in 2005 with his first album Anything Worth Saying, and the second single from the project, “My Savior, My God,” climbing to #1 on six charts by April of 2006. Shust has been honored with multiple GMA Dove Awards including Song of the Year (“My Savior, My God”), Songwriter of the Year, and New Artist of the Year in 2007. He is currently in the studio with producer Ed Cash to start working on his new studio project that will release in summer 2013. Visitwww.aaronshust.com for more info.

ABOUT JONNY DIAZ
From the very beginning of his music career, Jonny Diaz’ desire has always been to write songs that encourage and entertain, yet challenge fellow believers. His current CD, Jonny Diaz, is a collection of songs that accomplishes that mission, as is his 2009 release, More Beautiful You, which produced the #1 radio single “More Beautiful You” and led Diaz to a 2010 Dove Award nomination for New Artist of the Year. “More Beautiful You” also hit Top 25 on the mainstream AC/pop charts and claimed the #6 spot on Billboard’s AC charts.
