Andy Gibson to perform on The Grand Ole Opry
Curb Records artist Andy Gibson is capping off a great release week at radio for his new single “Best Thing” with a performance on The Grand Ole Opry this Saturday night, June 29, 2013. Gibson’s infectious new single launched to radio this week and he is excited to be be out sharing new music.
Says Andy, "After touring season ended last year I went back to the grindstone and started cranking out new songs and I couldn’t be happier with the album we have put together with Curb Records. Now I’m back out on the radio promoting the first single "Best Thing" and it is a blast! I love writing and making music but the best thing (no pun intended) is getting that music to the fans and I think they are gonna be singing along with this song all summer long. It’s a fun feel good record and you can’t help but want to sing along when you hear it."
Gibson teamed with legendary producer James Stroud and engineer extraordinaire Mike Shipley (Def Leppard, Maroon 5, Faith Hill, Alison Krauss) and is putting the finishing touches on his forthcoming album on Curb Records.

About Andy Gibson: Having written one of the most powerful #1 hits in recent memory (“Don’t You Want To Stay” by Jason Aldean and Kelly Clarkson,) Andy Gibson has been diligently working with in the studio with legendary producer James Stroud finishing up his own debut album including the infectious new single, “Best Thing”. Andy, who hails from Spokane, Washington grew up in both a musical and blue collar household. The Gibson family worked together on projects—buying old houses, gutting them, fixing them up and reselling them. Andy’s first job was at age five—pulling nails out of boards. True to his hands-on style, five-year-old Andy built his first guitar—out of cigar boxes and rubber bands.
After tirelessly working his craft, he signed his first publishing deal and turned in over 150 songs the first year. None would be bigger than “Don’t You Want to Stay,” which he wrote with Paul Jenkins and Jason Sellers. “It’s just overwhelming to me to hear people singing my song. Whether you’ve reached one person or 100 million people, it’s a satisfaction you can’t get with anything else”, says Andy.
Armed with a bevy of great new songs for his forthcoming debut album, Andy will likely have to get used to hearing a lot more of his songs sung back to him. “I do what I do because I love music,” he says. “I’ve got to be working on something, making something better. And if you’re someone who wants to work and will work, you can survive. You’ll find a way.”
