Fiction Family's "When She's Near" added to Sirius Satellite Radio (S018-FM) Radio, amongst other exciting Fiction Family/Jon Foreman News

(Random Side Note: This is probably the longest post in A LONG TIME. Bear with me... hehe)

Sirius Satellite Radio (AAA Rock format) is the first officially recorded radio station to spin Fiction Family's debut single, "When She's Near," coming in at No. 7 on that stations playlist!

Woot! it looks like they're giving "When She's Near" a lot of spins. 32 plays within one week isn't too shabby at all! This is interesting, as it is an advance add, about a week before the song officially impacts to Triple A radio.

--------------------------------- Post Exclusive Fiction Family Interview Videos

Today's post is almost all about Fiction Family! Here's some more stuff. Hearitfirst has got some videos that ask Sean Watkins and Jon Foreman about the project. There will be two new videos each Tuesday until release day! Awesome! Watch it now:

Jon Foreman Song To Be Featured on "One Tree Hill"

The WB’s ONE TREE HILL will use Jon Foreman's "Behind the Eyes" in the Jan. 12th episode. Check out for more details on the show.

This should be awesome. Jon's songs have been in other popular tv shows. Remember "The Cure For Pain" showing up on Grey's Anatomy last year?


New Jon Foreman Blog

Last but not least, Jon posted a terrific new myspace blog about the To Write Love On Her Arms benefit coming up, as well as yes, Fiction Family:

heavy and light, light and heavy

happy new year all!

and I know that it's about a week late but better late than never. And besides, in spite of the crazy times we're in, there's a lot to be thankful for. second chances. third chances. 734th chances. sunsets. sunrises. sunsets. And the passing of time begins to make a lot more sense to me in the context of grace instead of karma. Under a rule where love triumphs over justice...

Speaking of love, I have the honor of playing the heavy and light event presented by TWLOHA alongside of some of my favorite folks. If you live near florida (or if all that snow is making you think about moving to a warmer clime) you should hang out with all of us. It's a great community- check out more here...

What's after that you ask? well, I'll tell you: I'm setting out with a merry band of men called Fiction Family to traverse this democracy with songs of good cheer!
