ON THEIR CONNECTION TO INSPIRATIONAL MUSIC
"It is really what brought us together," says Jason. Adds deMarco: "I just know that there's some greater purpose for what Jason and I are doing."
ON BEING CHRISTIAN AND COMING OUT
"A lot of people think we're crazy to mess with Christian extremists," says deMarco. "But the worst thing that's happened is one of our concerts was picketed. It brought out three times the [number of concertgoers] normally there!"
ON THEIR ENGAGEMENT
"deMarco popped the question on our seventh anniversary [last July]," says Jason. "It was at a gay-owned restaurant in Houston. He even had a bottle of wine labeled with a picture of us." Explains deMarco: "It was an old-time photo of us dressed as cowboys, with shotguns, cowboy boots and cowboy hats." So when's the big day? "We haven't set a date yet," says Jason, "but sometime next year!"
