Los Angeles, Calif. (Nov. 21, 2012)â€”Critically acclaimed group Annie Moses Band will make its Grand Ole Opry debut this week, on Friday, November 23 at the historic Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, Tenn. The band is well known for its beautifully energetic shows and highly successful PBS television specials. This all-American premier string pop/folk group, led by singer & violinist Annie and her talented siblings, will perform alongside other musical greats including Crystal Gayle, Bobby Osborne & The Rocky Top X-Press, John Conelee, Jimmy Dickens and The Grascals.
The band is set to perform its current single â€œBlush,â€ from Pilgrims & Prodigals, the groupâ€™s latest release. Additionally, the group will play their show-stopping rendition of the holiday classic â€œGod Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen,â€ one of the many timeless carols featured on Annie Moses Bandsâ€™ upcoming holiday compilation, Annie Moses Band Ultimate Christmas Collection, available nationwide on November 27. Performances will air live at 7pm CT on 650 AM WSM Radio and Sirius XM on Channel 56.
Next week on November 25, fans can also catch the world premiere for their video â€œBlushâ€ on Great American Country (GAC). The music video was directed by award-winning filmmaker, David Kiern, inside of Tennesseeâ€™s glamorous Rippavilla Plantation. Though Rippavilla is a historic mansion infamous for its ghosts, the band saw it as a perfect backdrop for the radio single which marries a nostalgic message to a modern edge.
â€œBlushâ€ is a song that aims to question our cultureâ€™s cynicism and to speak a timeless truth with powerful relevance. The band recognizes that almost everyone in our society has been hurt by broken relationships, and that individuals turn to cynicism rather than a belief in values that create and nurture loving and long-lasting relationships. The songâ€™s message communicates the groupâ€™s desire to return to a time when a wounded heart was not an inevitable experience.
