Holly Starr Debuts New Single "Let Go" Feb 14th by Merge PR on 2012-02-13 12:24:56
Nashville, Tenn - 13 February 2012 - Singer and songwriter Holly Starr officially debuts her brand new radio single, "Let Go," tomorrow February 14th. Her brand new album, set for a summer release through Save The City Records/Provident Distribution, will be Starr's third project. The single "Let Go," produced by David Garcia (Group 1 Crew) and mixed by Chris Stevens (TobyMac, Mandisa, Jamie Grace), streets on Tuesday digitally via iTunes, Amazon, and Rhapsody.
Giving her new single the title "Let Go" is quite timely to what is going on in Starr's life. "Learning to let go has been a theme in my life lately," explains Starr. "After a season of being reminded who God is, and His strength in comparison to mine, the last year has certainly challenged that trust and, as a result, revealed to me who He is. Letting go is not easy, but thanks to God's enduring grace, I'm learning how nonetheless."
Already connecting with radio and listeners across the country, "Let Go" is currently playing on both AC and CHR stations, such as WJQK-Grand Rapids, WBSN-New Orleans, WGRC-Williamsport, PA, WCVK-Bowling Green, KY, WWWA-Augusta, Maine, WHPZ-South Bend, IN, WQME-Indianapolis, WHRZ-Spartanburg, SC, KADI-Springfield, MO, WORQ-Green Bay, WI, WHJT-Jackson, and WAYG-Grand Rapids. "Let Go" was also added to The Fish in Portland's "Sink or Swim" Hall of Fame after the single won five nights in a row.
"I think Holly's songs are going to connect with a lot of listeners out there because her lyrics are honest and to the point," states producer Chris Stevens. "Her music has a fresh and unique sound that stands out in the Christian market and she sings about topics that are relevant to those of us who are dealing with the complex issues of a modern world."
Ryan Gagne, PD of WWWA/Augusta shares, "['Let Go'] is a fresh song and a great reminder for our audience, especially for moms who deal with so much in a long day and those frustrations in life. It’s a fun reminder to know that we can let go of those things and give it over to God."
While songwriting and recording, Starr continues to perform year round across the country at solo dates as well as festivals. She is confirmed for a main stage performance at both Atlantafest and Lifest this summer, and she will also be appearing at the Alive Festival.

The sound must have been a maddening echo that haunted him at first, tormented by the rooster’s crow that mocked his empty proclamation of loyalty. For three days, his faith lay in the grave with the Savior’s body, darkened by the memory of his public desertion.
