Adam Gregory to star in "WWJD" movie
Monday, May 4, 2009
– Adam Gregory will star in the upcoming film "WWJD" based on one of the best-selling Christian books of all-time.
Gregory will star in the film alongside John Schneider (The Dukes of Hazzard TV show, Nip/Tuck, CSI, Smallville) and Maxine Bahns (The Mentalist, The Lost Tribe). "My faith and my music are very closely related," said Gregory. "I feel truly blessed for an opportunity where I can incorporate both into a project that serves a bigger purpose and will hopefully reach millions of others."
Gregory's original song What Would Jesus Do from his recent Canadian release "Crazy Days" will also be featured in the film. The song was co-written by Keith Follese and Billy Yates.
The film, produced by Joe and Jack Nasser and Kevin Otto of Nasser Entertainment Group, follows four individuals (a singer, a newspaper editor, a wealthy philanthropist and a minister who has lost his faith) as they vow to walk in "the steps of Jesus." Filming on the project begins this week in Los Angeles.

It's a song sung from the perspective of one who is sad that she has a heart that can be broken. That's not the current condition of Lambert's heart, though. She's apparently in a good... »»»
Concert Review: For Brooks and fans, a most unusual change of pace
To say that this was a change of pace for Garth Brooks - not to mention his fans - would be an understatement of the highest degree. Brooks all but begged during the show to be playing next door at Gillette Stadium where the New England Patriots play.
But, alas, Brooks exuded joy and excitement at the chance to play before about 500 people at a club,... »»»
