Rural Rhythm Records Signs Grammy® Award Winning Artist, Marty Raybon

 Rural Rhythm Records is very proud to announce they have signed Grammy® award winning artist Marty Raybon to the label and will release a new album in 2012.  The announcement came last Saturday night during Marty’s IBMA FanFest performance at the International Bluegrass Music Association’s World of Bluegrass when Sam Passamano, II, President of Rural Rhythm Records introduced the band.  “Marty’s signature vocals have earned him a string of #1 hit classic songs which are still loved and cherished today by millions of music fans. We are very excited about being a part of this new chapter in Marty Raybon’s storied career and proud to have one of today’s top male vocalists in the music business join our Rural Rhythm Family,” said Sam Passamano II.
Marty Raybon echoed the sentiments saying, “The excitement of finding a home in the wonderful family of Rural Rhythm is truly more than words could ever express for me. To know that It’s All About The Music is not just a slogan or catchy title – it is the vision of Sam Passamano II and the whole Rural Rhythm team.  Helen Keller was asked – ‘What would be worst than being born blind?’ and she replied – ‘To have sight with no vision.’  As a singer-songwriter, knowing the belief one has in you and a vision for the whole world to hear your music is what every artist dreams of.  I am not just proud to be a part of a record label but honored, to be a member of the family at Rural Rhythm.”
Marty has produced a remarkable list of career accomplishments including: multiple number one singles; top selling albums; CMA, ACM, IBMA and Grammy® awards; along with scores of other accolades.  Collectively, his contributions to the recording industry have sold well into the millions and he has performed literally thousands of live concerts around the globe.  He is well known for his role as lead singer of the band Shenandoah (1985-1996) and recorded his first solo album, Marty Raybon in 1995.  
Marty Raybon & Full Circle are now on tour including upcoming performances in Tennessee, Missouri, Kentucky, Louisiana, North Carolina, Florida and many more.  For more information, please visit:
