Andy Griggs has released his latest album, NAKED. The album is entirely acoustic, just Andy and his guitar, and includes original songs as well as covers from artists who have influenced him such as Waylon Jennings’ “Old Timer” and Willie Nelson’s“Angel Flying Too Close To the Ground.” iTunes has named the album ‘New and Noteworthy’ on their country page.
“I’m addicted to pure and raw feelings that’s as still and quiet as the wind,” Andy said. “Throwing your heart out whether it’s healthy or broken. Exposing a hurting soul! Bearing and giving it all with that ol’ piece of wood and 6 strings! It’s underwear on the couch, singing until daylight. It’s vulnerability to yourself. It’s vulnerability to your friends. It’s vulnerability to a crowd of strangers. In short, it’s all about bein’ NAKED!”
“Witnessing this recording session solidified all of my beliefs about Andy’s undeniable talent and the sheer, transcendent power of music and fulfilled all my expectations,” Andy’s manager Cathy Nakos said. “One track, one singer/musician, raw, no frills, totally vulnerable, one engineer, no punching…it was magical and incredible to behold. How could one person/artist put himself out there for all to see, totally exposed, mistakes and all, but totally willing to sacrifice for the authenticity and soul-baring honesty and pure emotion of the songs. How could we title this album anything but NAKED?”
NAKED is available digitally on iTunes and can be downloaded here.
