Andy Griggs Back With Politically-Inspired Song

Posted by Webb on 12/09/2010
The unmistakable voice of Andy Griggs has returned to the airwaves and the spotlight and fans couldn’t be happier. Country crooner Andy Griggs has returned with a new single, “Can I Get an Amen,” which Griggs co-wrote and produced. The song is already active at radio despite its add date being Jan. 3, 2011.
The controversial song expresses Griggs’ candid feelings on political correctness and was performed at a campaign rally for Alaska Senate candidate Joe Miller. The song received a standing ovation from the crowd who demanded an encore performance of the song.
Fans can hear the new song live when Griggs joins newcomer Jason Sturgeon, Average Joe recording artist Matt Stillwell and Aussie singer/songwriter Sherrie’ Austin for a special performance at The Listening Room Café inside Cummins Station in Nashville on Dec. 13 for Toys for Tots. The performance starts at 6 p.m. Attendees are asked to bring a new, unwrapped toy for Toys for Tots, which will enter them into a drawing for a $250 gas card. Parking is free in The Listening Room lot, just past the Cummins Station pay lot. 
Griggs is thrilled to be back in the swing of things, after a not-so-lucky 2009. A fire claimed his family’s Mt. Juliet home, but almost a year to the date of the fire, Griggs and his family moved into their new home.  
“It’s been a crazy year, but I’m in a wonderful place right now. My family and I are in our new home for the holidays, we’re all healthy and happy and I’m able to get back out there and give the fans new music - good music,” said Griggs.
“Can I Get an Amen” is available for purchase through Bandbox and iTunes.
