Watermark and Ginny Owens Fall Tour

In support of two of this spring’s most
critically-lauded albums, Rocketown Records recording artists Watermark and Ginny Owens head out this fall for a string of co-headlining dates in
September and November in partnership with Compassion International. Markets
to be hit during the first run include Jacksonville, FL; Norfolk, VA;
Minneapolis and Houston, while the tour’s second leg targets Birmingham, AL;
Charlotte, NC: Memphis, TN and Dallas/Fort Worth, among others. Spring Hill
recording artist Gersh (Mark Gersmehl, formerly of White Heart) will be the
special guest on all dates.
Owens, who toured this spring with Rebecca St. James and Michael W. Smith,
heads out in support of her sophomore disc, Something More. The album’s
first single, “I Am,” peaked in the Top 5 on R&R’s Christian Adult
Contemporary, Pop/CHR and Inspirational charts, one of the only singles this
year to thrive on such diverse formats. Owens’ new singles, “With Me”
(AC/CHR) and “All I Want to Do” (INSP), went for adds at Christian radio
last week, while a music video for “With Me” mails to video outlets at the
end of the month. Owens 1999 debut album, Without Condition, spawned three
No. 1 songs, sold over 300,000 copies and paved the way to Owens winning a
2000 Dove Award for New Artist of the Year.

Watermark’s Nathan and Christy Nockels spent their spring touring with
Fernando Ortega in support of their third album, Constant. The group’s
latest radio single, “Friend for Life (More of Thee),” is off to a
tremendous start with over 25 percent of stations at both AC and
Inspirational formats on the song within the first two weeks. The Dallas
Morning News noted, “Combine one of Christian music’s absolute best voices
with a rising-star producer… and you’ve got Watermark’s Nathan and Christy
Nockels. Her voice, his production and their writing are a head-spinning mix
of talent, shown off in yet another must-hear record.” Following the fall
tour with Owens, the Nockels will again perform a few dates with Ortega in
late November before heading home to await the late December birth of their
second child.

As a longtime member of veteran rock band Whiteheart, Mark Gersmehl (Gersh)
garnered two Grammy and 22 Dove nominations. On his solo Spring Hill debut,
Awakening, Gersh engages his more acoustic side with what CCM Magazine calls
a “piano record of intimate thinking man’s pop, full of hope and passion and
