Written by SGN Scoops on March 10, 2012 – 5:18 am -

NASHVILLE, Tenn.— Hymns, the highly-anticipated sophomore solo effort from Christian music’s premier country recording artist, Guy Penrod, is slated to bow March 27 from Gaither Music Group/Servant Records.  Produced by Penrod and Pete Green, Hymns showcases 13 of the award-winning artist’s favorite selections, including the debut single, “Does Jesus Care?,” a duet with the legendary George Beverly Shea.

Hymns includes “The Old Rugged Cross,” “What A Friend We Have In Jesus,” “Amazing Grace,” “Count Your Blessings,” and “Leaning On The Everlasting Arms,” among other songs.

“I grew up with and love the hymns,” Penrod says.  “The vernacular has changed, but hymns address the human condition and give help, guidance and encouragement through truths that survive the test of time.  Hymns are an important part of our history as believers.”

Penrod’s 2010 Dove Award-nominated Gaither Music Group/Servant Records solo debut, Breathe Deep, continues to be a benchmark for country recordings within the Christian marketplace, having sold more than 75,000 units to date and featuring successful mainstream country and southern gospel radio singles.  A 2011 Texas Gospel Music Hall of Fame inductee, Penrod made his Grand Ole Opry debut last year, along with numerous appearances throughout the U.S. and Europe.  Prior to his solo career, Penrod spent 14 years with the GRAMMY® and Dove Award-winning Gaither Vocal Band.

Hymns, a Gaither Music Group/Servant Records release, is distributed by EMI CMG Distribution and will be available at retail and digital outlets worldwide, as well as Cracker Barrel Old Country Stores®.  The new recording will be positioned heavily at retail and will be aired as part of a direct TV campaign on networks including GAC, RFD, GMC, TBN, FamilyNet, CTS, CTN, TCT, TLN, Airtime 1 and GMTN and in Canada on Grace, Legacy, Miracle and Vision.
