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

Gerry’s New Release – ‘If I had You To Have and to Hold’

‘If I had You To Have and to Hold’ – The new single from Gerry Guthrie 

 

‘If I had You To Have And To Hold’ is the endearing title of the great new energetic single from Gerry Guthrie. Written by Benny Barnes and Dee Marais, this classic up-tempo number, also known as ‘Poor Man’s Riches’, was a national hit for American Country artist Benny Barnes in 1956 and peaked at No. 2 on the Billboard Country Chart. It was also recorded by George Jones on his 1962 album entitled George Jones ‘Sings Country and Western Hits’, an album of hits previously recorded by other artists.

Gerry’s new song tells us that into every life come many kinds of riches. The duality of lack and abundance of riches has existed since time began and was evident to the writers of ‘If I had You To Have And To Hold’ back in the 1950s. The lyrics tell a story of travelling near and far, searching for the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. The moral of the story is that the greatest of all riches is love.  Real love can make you the wealthiest man in the land, right where you are, without any travelling or searching.

Gerry Guthrie is now one of Ireland’s foremost headlining country acts and 2018 has so far been his busiest year since the formation of his own band. He feels gratified for the success he has achieved with the help of radio presenters and the people in the printed media, plus friends and fans.   This enables him to perform these days at the premier venues and the big festivals and events the length and breadth of the country and indeed in the UK, Scotland and at guest spots abroad.

Bookings for the remaining months of the year show a continuation of the same busy trend for Gerry and the band.   The success of ‘If I had You To Have And To Hold’ will catapult Gerry into another successful year in 2019, his diary is already in great shape with bookings secured nationwide to date.

A few years back Gerry began hosting a ‘Gerry Guthrie & Friends’ dancing weekend, which became increasingly popular each year.  These events usually took place down in the South East of Ireland. In 2019 Gerry is homeward bound, taking his weekend of dancing to the West of Ireland.  Next year’s dancing weekend takes place from April 5th to 7th in the 4* Diamond Coast Hotel, Enniscrone, Co. Sligo just 10 miles from Gerry’s home town of Ballina.   Among the artists / bands performing are Robert Mizzell & The Country Kings, Sandy Kelly, Olivia Douglas, John Glenn and The Mainliners plus three shows with Gerry and his band. There will also be a number of surprise guests.
