Nashville, TN (October 21, 2013) Five-time Dove Award-nominee and three-time AGM/SGN “Songwriter of the Year” Kenna Turner West is headed to radio with the release of her first Daywind single entitled “Be Still and Know.”
Known primarily for penning chart-topping songs such as “Calvary’s Cry,” “Ask Me Why,” and “Revival,” the list of artists who have recorded her songs reads like a veritable “who’s who” of the gospel music industry, including Jason Crabb, The Booth Brothers, Brian Free and Assurance, Karen Peck and New River, Gordon Mote, The Martins, Jeff and Sheri Easter, Legacy Five, The Bowling Family, and many more.
Music runs in the family for Kenna, the daughter-in-law of country music legend Dottie West and the daughter of former Blackwood Brothers bass singer, Ken Turner. For thirty years, the author and certified counselor has blended music, devotional teaching, and humor into a ministry that has reached around the world serving alongside Christian leaders such as Franklin Graham and Dr. Jerry Falwell at venues ranging from The Pentagon to NASCAR chapels to the local church.
With an impressive seven #1 songs to her credit, thirteen “Song of the Year” nominations, and two “Song of the Year” wins, the Daywind staff writer is thrilled about the release of her first radio single in Gospel music, “Be Still and Know,” which hits the airwaves in November. “We couldn’t be more proud of her or more grateful to her Source,” states Rick Shelton, Vice President of Daywind Publishing.
