Award Winning Artist Sings at Presidential Rally
CHUCK DAY: "I'LL STAND UP AND SAY SO"
SETS THE TONE FOR HERMAN CAIN ANNOUNCEMENT OF PRESIDENTIAL CAMPAIGN 2012
Award Winning Singer-Songwriter Hopes His Message Will Make A Difference For America
Nashville, TN - May 31, 2011 - Multi-award winning country singer/songwriter Chuck Day has already added his unique signature to the 2012 Presidential campaign. It was Day and his live performance of his patriotic anthem "I'll Stand Up And Say So" that were chosen by the campaign of Herman Cain to be a part of Cain's much anticipated May presidential announcement celebration at Centennial Park in Atlanta.
An avowed patriot and outspoken Christian, Chuck was ecstatic when the opportunity came from the Cain campaign to share his thoughts in word and music on the preservation of God and America's heritage of liberty at the packed Atlanta event.
"I was really honored to be a part of the official presidential announcement rally for Herman Cain. I received a request to email over an mp3 of the song "I'll Stand Up and Say So" and in less than two days I was singing at the event," says Day. "The crowd was full of supporters and the energy they projected back at the stage was amazing. It was a very inspirational day and it was good to see American's standing up for what they believe."
"I'll Stand Up And Say So" (NewStep Records) is hitting a nerve with America at a time when "God & Country" patriotism is high in the national consciousness. The song held the #1 spot on the Hot 100 chart of Christian Voice Magazine in January and February, and reached the top spot on both Cashbox and Power Source Magazine charts in February.
Chuck Day is recognized as one of today's leading writers in the unique niche of the Christian Country/Country Gospel genre-a rare 'bridge artist' who has found success both in mainstream country and Christian markets. He's written 9 #1 songs to date-including "Midnight Cry" written with his brother Greg which was a triple crown winner as "Christian Song of The Year," "Song of the Decade," and among the Top 20 Christian Songs of the Century in a sweep of industry honors. He's written major hits for name artists including Bob Carlisle, Gold City, The Hoppers, The Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir, Michael English and Clay Crosse.
As a performer, he's been equally blessed. The International Country Gospel Music Association has recognized him as Entertainer of the Year, with Songwriter and Male Vocalist Awards added to honors. In 2000, he was inducted into ICGMA's prestigious Hall of Fame. Some of Chuck's songs were used in several of Bill Gaither's Homecoming Specials and have to date brought the additional accolade of two RIAA Gold Video Awards.
Day hopes that the message of "I'll Stand Up And Say So" will continue to grow and continue to broaden its bold message encouraging Americans to raise their voice and their votes in support of God in America and the values that have made the nation great.
"I just hope that people will take the time to look at the real issues as they apply to us as citizens," says Chuck. "We must uphold the Constitution and let our voice be heard! We must step up for freedom. It's time for Americans to Stand Up and Say So!"
Chuck Day will be a featured artist at a growing number of "tea party" and faith and values themed events within the next few months. Highlight appearances include:
July 9th Night Vision Festival -Olathe, Colorado.
Sept. 28- Oct. 2nd Freedom Jamboree -Kansas City, Kansas
Oct. 23-28th ICM Awards & Convention -Nashville, Tennessee
His current album release, "Eleven" is available on iTunes.
