January 7, 2010 - Nashville, TN - There's no question that 2009 was an exciting year for singer and songwriter Jonny Diaz. From his anthemic radio song "More Beautiful You" to its accompanying music video, this single has soared higher than Diaz ever thought possible.

"I've been blown away at how God has used this song," exclaims Diaz. "I really can't take any credit for its success, but I am thankful that He is using me as a vessel to share the song's extremely important message."

This summer "More Beautiful You" topped the radio charts for four consecutive weeks and even months later, it continues to be a staple song at stations nationwide. On the year-end charts, Diaz placed #9 as Billboard's Hot Christian Songs Artist and "More Beautiful You" claimed the #6 spot on Billboard's AC charts. It was also the 3rd best Christian Song of the year, according to AOL Radio.

To also top off the year, the music video for "More Beautiful You" won the "Contemporary Video" category in 2009's Gospel Music Channel Video Awards. In fact, the video received more votes than any other video in any of the categories. All winners can be found online at

"Winning GMC's award for best contemporary video of the year was a great way to cap off an amazing year," Diaz shares. "My calling to write songs that impact the body of Christ hasn't changed. However, things that happened in 2009 like the radio and video success of 'More Beautiful You' and being part of some fantastic tours has allowed me to impact a broader audience... and I'm so appreciative!"

Can Diaz top 2009? There's no question he's already off to a great start. His second radio single, "Stand For You," is the #1 most added song this week, the first reporting week of the new year, according to Billboard's Christian AC chart. KXOJ/Tulsa, KBIQ/Colorado Springs, WCRJ/Jacksonville, and WBSN/New Orleans are just a few of the many stations that started 2010 off playing Diaz's new single.

He is touring with Chris + Conrad this month in California, Nevada, Arizona and New Mexico. Constantly on the road, check out the tour dates below to see if he's performing in a city near you. Be sure to visit for the most updated concert dates.

"The glorious grind of writing, recording, and traveling continues on in 2010," concludes Diaz. "I am so blessed that I get to call this my "job."

The CD More Beautiful You released in May and is Diaz's fourth project, his first with INO Records. With all songs written or co-written by Diaz, the project was produced by Steve Wilson (Hawk Nelson, Josh Wilson). Following in the footsteps of his previous projects, More Beautiful You continues to reveal Diaz's inspiring lyrics and catchy melodies and instrumentation, while illuminating his heart to the listener, a heart that is passionate about reaching his generation with the message of God's love, forgiveness, and grace.
