On the heels of the successful headline tour last fall, GRAMMY-nominated artist Jeremy Camp is kicking off 2010 to reach listeners with his music, message and ministry with another headline acoustic tour.  Camp will launch his spring tour “Jeremy Camp Live Unplugged” with special guest and wife Adie on February 26th in Illinois (dates below). This tour was created with Camp’s fans in mind, providing an intimate night of worship and fellowship with Jeremy as well as Adie, who is releasing a new album in March.

The tour will once again be sponsored by Compassion International and feature Speaking Louder Ministries, which involves Jeremy and team reaching out locally to a set outreach in each market.

“It has been a couple of years since we have done an acoustic tour,” shares Jeremy Camp. “I love this type of tour because it is a very unique experience for everyone.  The reason we are doing it, is it brings a different atmosphere all together.  The night is more mellow and allows me to talk more about the songs and the purpose behind them.  They are smaller shows, usually in churches, and it turns out to be an amazing night of worship.  With Adrienne being out on the road with our two girls, Arie and Bella, it makes the tour a great family environment.  Can’t wait to see what God has in store this year.”

Last year was a highlight year for Camp with the launch of his ministry “Speaking Louder Ministries,” a fall headline tour, second American Music Award nomination and continued radio success.  In addition, Camp ended the decade with Billboard recognition as the No. 3 Christian Artist of the Decade.  Camp also had  five songs in the Billboard Top 50 Christian Songs of the Decade (songs listed below). Rounding off the year and kick-starting 2010 was Camp’s first GRAMMY nomination for his latest studio release “Speaking Louder Than Before.”  The awards will be held January 31st in Los Angeles, CA.

Camp also began this year recording his next studio project, a worship-themed album with award-winning producer Brown Bannister.  Follow Jeremy on Twitter for studio updates and YouTube videos (@JeremyCamp).

About Adie: Fans flocked to her angelic voice with her debut solo album, “Don’t Wait,” over three years ago on BEC Recordings.  On March 9, 2010 fans will get another taste of Adie with her sophomore release, “Just You And Me,” which features a collection of 10 worshipful songs, including some well known tunes as well as a few new surprises. Adie describes the music as more “organic and raw” than her solo debut. To keep up with Adie, read her blog, follow her Twitter and be her friend on Facebook.

About Speaking Louder Ministries: Founded in 2009, the purpose behind “Speaking Louder Ministries” is tri-fold: bringing a raised awareness to the local outreaches in the cities that Jeremy Camp performs, helping equip the church body and local community to get involved in ministry together, and impacting the needs of the community/organization with physical goods.

HM Magazine Turns 35

In 1985, Doug Van Pelt photocopied a letter-sized sheets of paper, bound them together, and handed them out in person on the campus of the University of Texas at Austin. It's all digital now, but, along the way, Van Pelt stirred up quite a few waves, played some seriously heavy music, and made a few friends along the way. Here: A quick look back at the magazine's 35-year history with Van Pelt and new owner, David Stagg.

Becoming Comrades

The trio of Comrades – husband and wife Joe and Laura McElroy alongside drummer John Gaskil – is used to living in a van and touring the country. Now, their new normal has provided them with a moment to "be adults" for once. We recently sat down with the McElroys to talk more about the spiritual reality within life, how soon they'll be able to release new music, and how koalas are their new normal.
