Jason Mraz Makes Chart History

(PR) "I'm Yours," the Grammy Award-nominated hit single from Atlantic recording artist Jason Mraz, has made history as it ascends to #1 at AC radio outlets nationwide. The track becomes the first song ever to top the charts at AC, Hot AC, CHR/Top 40 and Triple A.

Mraz's first ever AC #1, "I'm Yours" continues to reach listeners one year after its initial arrival at Triple A radio last February. Since then, "I'm Yours" has spent time atop the airplay charts at Triple A, Hot AC, and CHR/Top 40, where it remains a Top 10 success. The song remained in the #1 slot at Hot AC for 10 weeks, the most amount of time for any artist in 2008.

The San Diego-based tunesmith who last weekend made his debut performance on NBC's Saturday Night Live is slated to celebrate with an appearance on the Tuesday, February 10th installment of the nationally syndicated Ellen DeGeneres Show. He will be joined by Colbie Caillat for a very special live performance of their current single, "Lucky." This follows Mraz's recent appearances on NBC's The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, CBS' The Late Show with David Letterman, and ABC's Live with Regis and Kelly.

With a trio of Grammy Award nominations, including a prestigious "Song of the Year" nod for "I'm Yours," Mraz is among the top nominees at this Sunday's 51st Annual Grammy Awards. "I'm Yours" also was named in the "Best Male Pop Vocal Performance" category, while Mraz's acclaimed 2008 album, "WE SING. WE DANCE. WE STEAL THINGS." was acknowledged for "Best Engineered Album, Non-Classical" (marking the work of Dyre Gormsen and Tony Maserati).

"I'm Yours," which began as demo on a limited edition version of Mraz's last album, has since become an online phenomenon. To date, the song has been streamed on his MySpace page more than 53 million times.

Mraz has scheduled a brief series of February dates in the US (see attached itinerary) before embarking on a massive world tour, set to kick off later this month, with stops slated for Korea, Japan, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia, Italy, Germany, France, Portugal, Spain, Luxembourg, Switzerland, Belgium, Ireland, and the United Kingdom.

A uniquely engaging and energetic performer, Mraz will make his live return to the US with a trio of spring concerts alongside Dave Matthews Band. The dates include an April 25th show at Nashville's Vanderbilt Stadium and a pair of much anticipated nights at Las Vegas' MGM Grand Garden Arena on May 8th and 9th.
