Wednesday, January 09, 2013
Hymns, the Servant Records/Gaither Music Group sophomore release from Christian and Country music recording artist, Guy Penrod, is the top-selling Southern Gospel album of 2012, according to Nielsen Christian SoundScan's year-end chart. The project is also last year's best-selling Gospel recording in Cracker Barrel Old Country Stores® nationwide.
One of the most in-demand touring artists in Christian music, Penrod traveled throughout the US and abroad last year, highlighted by a performance at Southern Gospel's premier gathering, September's National Quartet Convention in Louisville, Kentucky.
In 2012, he was also featured on the cover of top industry publication, Singing News and made multiple media appearances, including radio's "The Mike Huckabee Show," RFD TV's top-rated "Larry's Country Diner," and one of North America's most popular Christian television programs, "100 Huntley Street." Additionally, Penrod hosts DayStar Television's weekly "Gospel Music Showcase," and capped the year by hosting the network's Christmas special from Branson, Missouri.
Produced by Penrod and Pete Greene, Hymns debuted at #1 on Nielsen SoundScan's Southern Gospel retail chart last year.
