Award-Winning Songwriter Mark Wayne Glasmire Celebrates A Patriot’s Return With New Single – “Going Home”
Nashville, TN (August 30, 2011) – Award-winning songwriter Mark Wayne Glasmire celebrates a patriot’s return with the release of his newest single, “Going Home.” The crisp ballad is from the upcoming EP (MARK WAYNE GLASMIRE), and is available now to disc jockeys and programmers via Play MPE and CDX, Vol. 530.
Co-produced by Glasmire and John Albani (Steve Azar, Monty Holmes, Randy Boudreaux), “Going Home” was inspired by a conversation with a friend of Mark’s who was retiring after a decades-long career in the U.S. Marine Corps. Mark’s vocal is clean and clear yet emotive, and he captures, in lyric and in melody, the uncertainty and hope felt upon returning home after a lifetime away. The past meets the present, and a glimpse of the future is found in the song’s opening lines:
Leaves turning colors of red
Yellow and faded brown
Autumn wind blowing from the east
Sun sinking in the west
As I headed out of town
Leaving behind memories, of how my life used to be
Not knowing what lies ’round the bend
Keeping my eyes on a bright new horizon
Starting all over again” – Mark Wayne Glasmire
Video filming is complete, and an extensive radio support tour is planned. Mark’s new website has been launched, and fans can hear the song at www.markwayneglasmire.com.
