NASHVILLE, TN--(Marketwired - Mar 1, 2016) - Considered among many as the next musical sensation, Nashville's own Annie Moses Band marked the release of their newest WMG/Warner Classics project, The Art Of The Love Song last Friday February 26th. The cd with bonus track and DVD and Blu-Ray featuring band interview footage are also available, including a corresponding 60-minute concert footage special airing on PBS stations beginning this month and running throughout the coming months. AMB celebrated their newest WMG release with a return to The Grand Ole Opry on Saturday, February 27th, 2016. Already a favorite at the legendary venue where The Art Of The Love Song special was filmed, the band will perform favorites from the album, previewing what fans can expect from the PBS special.
"The Grand Ole Opry is about honoring the great artists of the past and building upon their musical legacy, and that's what we wanted to do in 'The Art Of The Love Song,'" the band stated, adding, "So it was incredible to perform these classic songs with the signature sound of the Annie Moses Band for all the music lovers at the Opry."
In addition to their performance, the band hosted a signing for fans at the venue immediately following the show, meeting and taking photos with fans who gathered.
A sweeping musical collection and presentation of the greatest love songs ever written, The Art Of The Love Song showcases the most classic love songs of the century from the lush strings of Nat King Cole to the heartfelt songwriting of artists like Paul Williams' "Evergreen," Ewan MacColl's "The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face," and Lennon-McCartney's "And I Love Her," among countless other gems.
The Annie Moses Band has already won over thousands who appreciate the group's unique mix of musical brilliance, family ties and beauty of heart, mind and spirit. Their live shows are transformative, their recordings inspirational to critics and general audiences, and with The Art Of The Love Song, these six siblings offer the world exactly the music needed in these challenging times.
More than an artistic and conceptual milestone in modern popular music, The Art Of The Love Song ultimately will be remembered as the moment that these young performers stake their claim as one of America's most valuable ensembles. They are individually instrumentalists of the highest order as well as accessible and distinctive personalities. Collectively, they challenge and inspire each other and invite more listeners to savor the results, whether sculpting a landmark George Gershwin composition into a humorous but exhilarating Rhapsody In Bluegrass or, with The Art Of The Love Song, marrying two of humanity's greatest attributes, love and music, into one unforgettable achievement.
Having already undertaken several exciting projects, leading up to last year's American Rhapsody tribute to classic American repertoire The Art Of The Love Song boldly and beautifully marks a shift from this sweeping perspective to an intimate examination of romance through song.
