Biography Timeline

1986

Gray was born Christon Michael Gray on July 18, 1986, in Columbus, Ohio. His parents, Arthur Gray (a former choir leader), and his mother Leigh Ann (a trained soprano) have two other children; Christon's older brother, Taelor Gray, who is also a rapper and pastor, and his younger sister Aubrey, who is currently a college student. He resides in Cincinnati, Ohio with his wife, Shana Gray and has a daughter named Mya Blue. On February 22, 2020, they welcomed a baby girl, Story Monroe Gray.

2006

In 2006, Gray was a part of The Elevationists with his brother, Taelor and childhood friend BJ (James Hazley). After a few years together, they disbanded the group.

2011

In 2011, Gray, with the help of writing partner and music director Marlo Scott, released an album entitled Even With Evil With Me. The independent release spawned the timeless track ‘Isle of You’, which quickly led to record label interest. Before the year was out, he was signed to Collision Records.

2012

In 2012, he began working on his retail and label debut for Collision, but as it morphed, he decided to release it as a free mixtape. Body Art was a hit among Gray's fans and featured the label's roster as well as other artists and producers from the CHH genre. It caught many fans off guard because it was more of a rap album than EWEWM, which was the album's intention.

2013

Early in 2013, the label released the collective album We Live As Kings (W.L.A.K.). As a member of the four-man group, Christon was featured on the majority of the tracks. The album went on to top the Billboard Gospel chart and crack the top 10 on the Rap and Christian charts. It also contained the cut 'King in Me' which was used as the theme song to American Idol's Super Bowl commercial in 2014.

2014

On March 25, 2014, Gray released his 2nd studio album entitled School of Roses. It included fan favorites ‘Vanish’ (feat. Swoope) and ‘Wanna’ (feat. JGivens) which peaked at No. 15 on the Billboard Live Trending chart. This was more of an R&B album than Body Art, and it debuted at the top of the overall charts on iTunes, and hit No. 44 on the Billboard Top 200 and No. 5 on Top R&B Albums.

2015

In early 2015, Gray began releasing music on his own, prompting fans to question whether or not he was still a part of Collision and W.L.A.K. The first track 'Open Door (See You Later)' was posted on his SoundCloud page in March 2015. Still not addressing his status, one week later he posted the beautiful piano led love ballad, 'Afraid With You'. Lastly, he posted ‘Light On’ featuring B.Reith the following week. On April 28, 2015, after confirming he was leaving Collision in an interview with Wade-O & Rapzilla, Gray released an EP called The Demos to be streamed exclusively on the Christian music-streaming app, "The Overflow". The album went to be the most streamed project on the entire service for 2015, with all 5 tracks occupying spots No. 1 – No. 5 the week of its release.

It became clear that he was using these songs to get himself a new record deal, and in June 2015, he revealed that he had signed with Kirk Franklin's label, Fo Yo Soul Recordings/RCA. Kirk himself made the announcement via video screen at Alive Fest in Ohio on June 20, 2015. He subsequently removed The Demos to work on his third retail album and label debut.

On November 18, 2015, Rapzilla.com released an interview via email with Gray in which he said his debut with Fo Yo Soul had been completed and was being scheduled for release during "the colder part of 2016".

A couple of weeks later, on December 2, 2015, Gray released a freestyle video that included the name and release date of his next project, The Glory Album. Gray's debut album with Fo Yo Soul/RCA was set to be released on March 11, 2016.

2016

The Glory Album was released on March 11, 2016. The LP went on to again claim the No. 5 position on the Billboard R&B charts, while also hitting No. 6 on the Christian chart.

Gray was chosen as the first ever youth ambassador for the BET Awards in June 2016.

On September 14, he released the album's second single 'Time Out', produced by Toronto's GiAngelo Power. That instrumental had come from a writing session with JGivens in November 2016. The song would go on to be featured on Spotify's 'Beastmode' Playlist and peak at No. 11 on Urban Christian CHR radio BDS reporting list, 'The Hot Chart'. It would spend 6 months on that chart.

2017

Leading up to the album release, he was chosen as one of ESPN’s Artists of the Month for March. The station highlighted 3 tracks, ‘Open Door (See You Later)’, 'The Glory Pt. I' and ‘Stop Me' on all of their regular programing. The later track went on to be used in commercials for Honda, HBO's Ballers, FOX's Lethal Weapon & RocNation Sports. It was also used at the ESPY Awards during the shows final segment. The remix of the song was debuted during his interview on the Sway in the Morning show in mid September 2016. The song continued success in 2017, being used on FOX Sports programming worldwide, as well as the team song for a number of professional sports franchises. In 2018, the song was used as the theme to Warner Bros Pictures blockbuster 'Rampage' starring The Rock and as the intro song to EA Sports 'Madden '19' NFL Video game. For the 2018–19 NBA Season, ESPN is using the song for its in NBA Studio show. In 2020, it was used by ABC in some commercials for their show 'For Life'.

After just one album with the label, Gray let fans know that he had officially left RCA in January 2017. He did not elaborate on the reasons, but said when the time was right he would speak about it. According to the post, it was a business decision and he wishes all parties involved well.

In March 2017, Gray, along with Chris Shaban started their own Podcast entitled 'Chris' Podcast'. The first two episodes included guests Ty Montgomery, Chris Broussard and Darren Haynes. Gray mentioned that this was a pilot program and that they were looking to bring it back sometime in 2019.

2018

By the end of the year, an agreement had been reached for him to rejoin Fo Yo Soul and the new staff at RCA Inspiration in Nashville. It would not become public until later on in 2018.

In March, there came a string of posts from the studio that included MD and producer Marlo Scott, Producer GiAngelo Power, Pastor Trevor DeVage, Montgomery and Shaban. Gray said in a post on Twitter, "...there was a week in March 2018 when everything started to come together. That week we did 'Grow Up', 'You & I (Sampson's Lament)' and brushed up a few other songs that made the cut." Those other songs were 'Seekrets', 'Together Forever' and the instrumental to 'Clear The Heir'.

2020

A video for the songs from the 2 track offering was released on May 14, 2020. It features Dee-1's verse from 'Round Here' as well as a full video for 'All Day Flow'. The video was shot by Christian Padron. It also ends with a teaser for Gray's upcoming album, School of Roses 2, said to be released on Independence Day 2020.

On April 17, 2020, Gray dropped a single entitled, 'See You Soon'. According to YouTube, he dropped this song early in the pandemic to be an encouragement, mainly to other people. The blurb asks people to get groceries, call and pray for your neighbors. Mike Conley of the Utah Jazz used the song as part of his donation press release during COVID-19. As of June 15, 2020, the song sat at No. 11 on the Christian CHR and Rhythmic radio chart, and was on major radio in Canada, France, England, Australia, New Zealand, and many other places around the world. Containing a sample from Tracklib, the sample house interviewed the song's producers, Phantom and Chris Shaban shortly after the release.

On June 11, 2020, Gray posted an album cover and song title, Beautiful Dreamer, for a track to be released on the Juneteenth holiday (June 19).
