New 12 Track Album!!

**OFFICIAL RELEASE DATE – THURSDAY 17th OCTOBER!**

Next week sees the release of a wonderful new heart-warming 12-track CD from Gerry Guthrie entitled ‘Walking In The Sunshine’.  This unique album celebrates Gerry’s love of country music, and when country singers get it right, it is often the sentimental songs; saluting the audience and radio listeners and acknowledging the ups and downs of everyday life that are most popular.  

 This is Gerry’s fifth studio album; it contains some well-aged songs and includes his popular single releases ‘Did She Mention My Name’, If I Had You To Have and To Hold’, ‘Tequila Sheila’, and his most recent single ‘Walking in the Sunshine’.  It also includes a track entitled ‘The Old Guitar’, which is very special for two reasons.  Firstly, for Gerry it is an important part of his real life story, and secondly, it was written especially for him by his manager Henry McMahon, a gifted songwriter and wordsmith, known far and wide as ‘The man with the golden pen’.

The album features Gerry on two contrasting duets; the classic Merle Haggard song ‘The Fighting Side Of Me’ with Matt Leavy, in addition to a beautiful version of ‘We Will Meet Again’ with Sandy Kelly.

 Throughout his career, Gerry has consistently identified and recorded hidden gems from the country music back catalogue.  This trend continues with this album, which features ‘When The World Has Turned You Down’ written and first recorded by country legend Ernest Tubb.  This song was also covered by celebrated country artists Waylon Jennings and Vern Gosdin. Gerry has given it a modern feel and added his own winning formula in delivering the song.

The album also includes an original waltz, ‘Life Goes So Fast’,penned for Gerry by singer/songwriter Gerard Dornan.  It has all the hallmarks of a classic.

Fans keen to purchase this exciting new album may buy a copy at one of Gerry’s forthcoming shows, in music shops, online outlets or from his website www.gerryyguthrie.ie
