HENDERSONVILLE, Tenn. (March 4, 2015) – Dove Award winner Marty Funderburk has signed an exclusive agreement to remain as a part of the Daywind Music Publishing roster of songwriters. The veteran Funderburk has been affiliated with Daywind Music Publishing for the past 17 years.
“Songwriting is a privilege I hope I never take for granted,” explains Funderburk. “Daywind Publishing has nurtured my creativity and allowed me the freedom to express that which God places in my heart for the past 17 years. I look forward to all that God has in store as we re-commit ourselves to moving forward with the work at hand.”
While he has had dozens of songs land on the radio charts, Funderburk has had two No. 1 singles – the Kingdom Heirs’ hit “Forever Changed” and the Talley Trio’s chart-topping “Life Goes On.” His songs have been recorded by Kenny Rogers, Ricky Skaggs and the Whites, Gold City, Jake Hess, Janet Paschal, Sisters, Brian Free & Assurance, the Hoppers, the Blackwood Brothers, Greater Vision, Mark Lowry, Karen Peck and New River, The Mark Trammell Trio, the Perrys, Ernie Haase & Signature Sound and the Bowlings.
Of his nine Dove Award nominations, the latest came earlier in 2014, with Funderburk’s Christmas musical – “The Highest Glory” – winning the Dove Award for Musical of the Year.
“Marty Funderburk brought his talent to Daywind Publishing in the very early days of its existence,” points out Daywind Vice President of Music Publishing Rick Shelton. “His brilliant songs have been recorded by every major artist in our genre, and his choir music has been performed by thousands of church choirs. Marty is a dear member of the Daywind family. We are so very proud of him and the impact of his songwriting.”
