Two of Christian music's premier singers/songwriters will perform at East Ellijay Baptist Church in Ellijay, Ga., at 7 p.m. Friday, March 1.

Andrew Peterson and Jason Gray have teamed up for The StoryTellers Tour and have been traveling the country performing. The two blend their senses of humor with heartfelt lyrics and intimate performances.

"As much as I love Jason's songwriting and excited as I am about doing these concerts, I'm even more excited about having several weeks of time with one of my dear friends," says Peterson.

"I don't know anybody who can communicate with an audience like Jason can. It's a rare gift, and I plan to take copious notes and steal as much as possible from him on this tour. Anyone out there who hasn't seen him live is in for a huge blessing, even if he has a weird Michael Jackson head-whip thing he does when he gets into a song."

Gray is just as effusive about Peterson.

"Andrew Peterson has always been one of my heroes," Grays says. "He is a truth teller of the highest order and creates some of the most beautiful music I've heard. I'm also grateful to call him my good friend. We've talked about doing a tour together for years, and I'm excited we finally get to do it. Oh yeah, and he throws like a girl."

Tickets are $10 in advance, $14 day of show. They may be purchased at the church, 672 Yukon Road, or online at or
