Gospel Hip Hop Artist Invites Fans to Name New Album

Arrow Records is giving fans of gospel hip hop artist Canton Jones the chance to name his next album through a recently launched contest.

Jones – who will be teaming up with the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association for the "Rock The River Tour" this summer – is currently working on his fourth album for Arrow Records and has invited fans to get creatively involved in the record-making process through the "Whatchamacallit" contest.

From Mar. 11 through Mar. 20, music fans can offer what they think will be the winning title for Jones' latest project and get a chance to win some prizes by e-mailing their submissions.

The grand prize winner, who will be announced on Mar. 23 along with the second and third place winners, will get a Canton Jones Anthology (complete collection of Arrow Records catalog of Canton Jones autographed CDs), autographed CD, a T-shirt and inclusion on next album. The second place winner will receive an autographed CD and a T-shirt and the third place winner will receive an autographed CD.

Jones' last album, Kingdom Business, was nominated last month for a Dove Award for Best Urban Album. Winners of the 40th annual Gospel Music Association (GMA) Dove Awards will be announced Apr. 23 at the awards ceremony in Nashville.
