The Savoy Label Group (SLG) is set to release “NEVER ALONE” — a special CD/DVD package containing the first commercial song release and music video of country super group Lady Antebellum in collaboration with multi platinum artist Jim Brickman. Recorded with Brickman in 2008, “Never Alone” is a showcase for Lady Antebellum vocalist Hillary Scott (performing a song written by Scott’s aunt/songwriter Victoria Shaw). The song was an immediate A/C charting single, and the accompanying music video became a YouTube sensation, approaching 1 million views. Also included in the new “NEVER ALONE” package is a bonus DVD containing the “Never Alone” music video and never-before-seen footage of the making of the video. The CD also features songs recorded by Jim Brickman with special guests such as Carnie Wilson (of Wilson/Phillips), Marc Antoine and soul legend Gerald Levert in his last recording. ”NEVER ALONE” is available on SLG Records on April 27.
“Never Alone” is yet another in a continuous string of hit songs by Brickman — a list for which he holds the distinction of being the #1 A/C radio charting artist of all time. Jim has also collaborated on numerous vocal events with the likes of Martina McBride, Olivia Newton-John, Michael W. Smith, Michael Bolton and Sara Evans, fostering crossover success on the adult contemporary, country, Christian, contemporary jazz and smooth jazz singles charts.
Lady Antebellum recently dominated the ACM Awards, which aired on April 18th, winning three major categories: Single of the Year, Song of the Year and Best Vocal Group. Jim Brickman continues to tour and will be releasing a new project in 2010.
