Audrey Assad & Andrew Peterson come to the Community Coffeehouse at Walnut Hill for the Edge of Dawn Tour.

Audrey Assad is the daughter of a Syrian refugee, an author, speaker, producer, and critically lauded songwriter and musician. She releases music she calls “soundtracks for prayer” on the label Fortunate Fall Records, which she co-owns with her husband William. 

For more than twenty years now, Andrew Peterson has been about the business of quietly changing lives in four-minute increments. In the city of Nashville where music is an industry in the same way fast food, generic greeting cards, and bumper stickers are industries, Peterson has forged his own path, refusing the artistic compromises that so often come with chasing album sales and radio singles and creating instead a long line of songs that ache with sorrow, joy and integrity, and that are, at the end of the day, part of a real, ongoing, human conversation.

Jason Gray at the Community Coffeehouse

When Jason Gray explains that his last three records were written in the hardest years of his life, he’s not being dramatic. He’s just stating facts. And when he says that his new Centricity Music project—Where the Light Gets In—is a brighter and more hope-centered travelogue of the next leg of that journey through deep sorrows, he’s not suggesting easy platitudes, but an active sense of God’s redemptive presence at work even in the midst of difficulties.

The songs that have propelled Jason’s recent successes—multiple ASCAP Performance Awards, an album hailed by critics as “Album of the Year,” five top 5 radio singles including a #1 for 9 weeks straight—ironically came during his own darkest days. Then again, maybe it’s not irony at all. Maybe that’s how redemption actually works. Maybe it’s only by walking through the valley of the shadow ourselves and finding a real hope there that we have anything of substance to offer to others walking deep valleys of their own.
