Aaron Shust Has Longest Running #1 Hit in 2011 “My Hope Is In You” Eight Weeks At Top Spot On AC Monitor Chart
Nashville, TN (December 15, 2011) ----- A hearty congratulations are in order for Centricity Music’s Aaron Shust for reaching a career milestone. Shust’s single, “My Hope Is In You,” this week became the longest running #1 song in 2011 on the AC Monitor chart, which remained in the top spot for eight weeks. The single also was #1 on the iTunes Single Christian chart last week. This is the longest running #1 for Shust as an artist and is the first #1 hit at AC radio for Centricity Music. The project is Shust’s debut with Centricity Music and the song is from the album, This Is What We Believe.
“What an amazing song! What an amazing artist!,” exclaims Mike Prendergast, Program Director, KLTY, Dallas, TX.
"With the economy and condition of our world the past few years so many people are losing hope,” says Joe Buchanan, Music Director, New Life Media. “I'm so grateful we have a song like 'My Hope Is In You' to point people to where true hope can be rediscovered.”
Shust’s follow-up single, “Risen Today” from This Is What We Believe, will go for adds at radio January 20, 2012. The song is a re-make of the well-loved hymn, “Christ the Lord is Risen Today,” and gives the classic tune an upbeat delivery but with the same respect for the message of the lyrics. Fans will have the chance to hear Shust perform the song live on the spring leg of the highly-popular Called To Love Tour that launces in March 2012.

World Vision presents The Called to Love Tour featuring Downhere, Aaron Shust and Jason Gray
August 9, 2011
Nashville, TN (August 9, 2011) ---- Centricity Music has announced an exciting new tour for this fall that features three of their artists…. Downhere, Aaron Shust and Jason Gray. World Vision presents The Called To Love Tour that launches October 1st and runs through November 13th. All three artists are releasing new projects this fall; Aaron Shust This Is What We Believe (8/23), Downhere, On The Altar Of Love (8/23), and Jason Gray A Way To See In The Dark (9/13). The teaming of these popular and high-profile artists will bring audiences a meaningful and fun evening of worship and music.
“This will be my 6th tour with Downhere, a group of guys that I not only respect and love, but also have lived a lot of life with them on the road,” says Jason Gray. “I’m a fan. I love their new record and am grateful that I get to be part of sharing it with their audience. I’ve gotten to know Aaron over the past year, too - a humble man of God who pursues excellence in his passion to honor God. I’m excited to get to know him better and am grateful to be a part of this exciting chapter of his ministry. I’m honored to be in such great company and it will be fun for us to all share in celebrating the release of our new records. That we get to serve Jesus together while also partnering with World Vision is more than I should hope for, but am grateful. The only problem is that sharing the stage with such excellent people will mean I’ll have to work harder. Thanks a lot guys - why do you have to be so awesome?!”
“Any time we get to hit the road with our music, we consider it a privilege and a joy,” adds Marc Martel, leader singer, Downhere. “When we get to go out with good friends like Jason Gray and Aaron Shust, it is even more rewarding, giving the fans a unified, well-rounded experience with performers who not only share the same bus, but also the same heart and vision.”
"I couldn't agree more with Marc and Jason; chemistry is so important when doing Kingdom work,” says Aaron Shust. ”Even though what we do is described as 'playing', an artist's work can be emotionally draining, so having like-minded brothers to walk with on the journey and pour back into your life is a blessing. I'm so grateful to have those relationships in my band and on this tour with Jason Gray and Downhere."

Nashville, TN (July 6, 2011) ----- Dove award winning artist Aaron Shust, traveled to Indiana, PA to shoot his new video for the hit single, My Hope Is In You. Vinegar Hill Creative oversaw the production with David Altrogge and Michael Harnet serving as directors for the taping. The video will world premiere on HearitFirst.com and will also have special promotions to coincide with the premiere.
The concept of the video is a couple turning to their faith as their daughter faces medical issues. It’s a subject familiar to Shust as he faced his own life threatening medical struggles with his 2-year-old son, Nicky. Due to a miraculous healing after months of prayer, Nicky is now a healthy toddler and doing very well.
My Hope Is In You was the most added song on the radio add date two weeks ago and was the second most added last week. The single is currently on three charts; AC Monitored, New & Active (#33); AC Indicator, charted at #24; INSP, charted at #18; and starting to receive adds on the CHR chart.
Strong 1st Week At Christian Radio
June 17, 2011
Christian radio has embraced the new single from worship artist, Aaron Shust, which is his debut music as an artist on Centricity Music. My Hope Is In You went for radio adds on June 10th and the reports this week rank the song as New & Active on the AC Indicator chart after one week. The song was written by April Geesbreght and at the production helm is Ed Cash. The single is from Shust’s forthcoming album, This Is What We Believe that releases August 23, 2011.
“This song feels so personal to me,” explains Aaron. “Ed was familiar with April’s version of My Hope Is In You and he couldn’t get it out of his head. When I played it for my wife, she told me I had to put it on my record. Even though I didn’t write it, it expresses my heart, and it’s exactly what I would want to say.”
“This is going to be a huge summer song of encouragement for our listeners,” adds Bill Lurwick of KJIL. “I’m so glad to have new music from Aaron Shust!”
