“Male Vocalist of the Year” Nomination in ICM Awards Ceremonies Cap Fall 2011
Nashville, Tennessee (September 14, 2011) – Guy Penrod strikes a strong vocal note of encouragement to the everyday American worker in his powerful new single “More Power To Ya” being delivered to country radio this week via Play MPE and CDX Vol. #531.
The third single from his much acclaimed BREATHE DEEP CD release, Penrod’s choice of the Jon Mabe/Jason Matthews written “More Power To Ya” continues to engage country listeners with a ‘faith & family’ values message that delves deep into the heart of the nation’s ‘can do’ spirit.
“I chose the song because of its down-to-earth grit when it comes to making it through life,” notes Guy. “Life often deals us what seems at times to be an unfair hand. But the message in this great song is that the things that truly matter to us, our families-wives, kids, parents, friends–in short the people we love–are what’s most important. We still get up and get out there and fight to provide for those we love. Things are especially challenging for the American work force at this time, but the numbers still reflect that we, as a people, are going to do what it takes to care for those we love and that grit deserves our applause and encouragement….to which I say, more power to ya!”
With the unveiling of his new single and fall 2011 concert schedule, Guy Penrod remains one of the most “audience connective” live performers in the music industry. For country fans, his 2010 debut solo tour in support of BREATHE DEEP put a fresh face” on the unmistakable voice that help propel The Gaither Vocal Band to multi-Grammy wins and multi-million unit record sales. He has to date performed before audiences of more than six million concert-goers in the U.S. alone. The release of BREATHE DEEP set Penrod on course to be a centerpiece artist at the CMA Music Festival, tour Europe to introduce the new music, and embark on an ambitious country radio promotional tour that boosted his emerging strength in the genre to six figure sales in 2010.
Guy will cap October with an October 28th appearance/performance at the ICM Faith, Family & Country Awards presentation being held in Nashville at the Schermerhorn Symphony Center. He is nominated in the Male Vocalist of the Year category set to be presented that night.
