AMERICAN IDOL FINALIST PHIL STACEY TO RELEASE DEBUT CD ON APRIL 29TH Category: Music
FIRST VIDEO SHOT IN NASHVILLE THIS WEEK Nashville, TN – February 14, 2008 – The debut CD from American Idol Season 6 finalist Phil Stacey will hit stores on April 29th. The date represents a slight move from the previously announced mid-April street date, and is the result of Phil's already jam-packed travel schedule. "It has always been my first priority to make the album I have promised the fans, and I needed this extra studio time," says Phil. "Lyric Street has been great to work with me on this!" Phil chronicles his busy schedule and day-to-day experiences each Monday on his USA Today blog, found at http://blogs.usatoday.com/idolchatter/2008. Phil's debut disc features the lead single "If You Didn't Love Me," written by Wendell Mobley, Jason Sellers and Rascal Flatts' Gary LeVox. The song is already making a rapid ascent of the country radio charts, and is currently reaching over 1 million radio listeners each week. Roman White, who directed videos for both "Before He Cheats" and "So Small" for Carrie Underwood, filmed the video for "If You Didn't Love Me" in the Nashville area this week. Shot at an old motel, the clip features several different storylines of people who depend on the love of others, as well as a very special guest appearance by Phil's wife Kendra. Phil made a name for himself in 2007 when he performed for millions of viewers each week during his competition on the sixth season of American Idol. His renditions of the country hits "Where The Blacktop Ends," "The Change," and "I Need You" were among his most praised performances of the season. Following his time on American Idol, Phil toured with his fellow contestants over the summer on a 55 city tour before moving to Nashville, where he signed with Lyric Street Records. Lyric Street Records is a part of Disney Music Group. The Disney Music Group is the recorded music and music publishing arm of the Walt Disney Studios.
