1, 2 and 3: Adam Klutinoty, front man for rock newcomers About A Mile, might not stand a chance weightlifting with Jeremy Camp during one of their breaks on Winter Jam, but he sure can give Francesca Battistelli some stiff competition when it comes to arcade games. Perhaps he should stick to playing ping-pong with pal Colton Dixon, especially considering they won the west coast edition of the tour’s tournament.

4: First time GRAMMY nominees for KING & COUNTRY took home two trophies at the 57th annual ceremony, including “Best Contemporary Christian Album for RUN WILD. LIVE FREE. LOVE STRONG. and “Best Contemporary Christian Music Song” for Messengers.” Pictured from left to right at the GRAMMY Nominee Party in Nashville: Joel Smallbone, President and CEO Word Entertainment Rod Riley, Luke Smallbone, Director Brand Management Josh Thompson and Senior Vice President A&R Josh Bailey.

5: Michael Sweet (Stryper) and George Lynch (Dokken, Lynch Mob) on the set of a photo shoot for their debut Sweet & Lynch “super group” album, Only To Rise (Frontiers Records), with famed rock photographer Alex Solca in Los Angeles.

6: Salem Communications/Salem Publishing’s Executive Director of Advertising, DeDe Donatelli-Tarrant, and her husband Cal Tarrant visit pop/rockers Love & The Outcome at Saddleback Church after the group served as musical guests for a Sunday service.
