ANDY GRIGGS RELEASES “20 LITTLE ANGELS,” DEDICATED TO NEWTOWN, CT

100% of Song’s Proceeds Go to Families of Mass Shooting Victims
Nashville, Tenn. (January 7, 2013) – Country music star Andy Griggs and hit songwriter Bobby Pinson have penned a song dedicated to the families of those affected by the recent tragedy in Newtown, CT.  Proceeds from the song, “20 Little Angels” will be donated to the Sandy Hook School Support Fund managed by the United Way of Western Connecticut.
“United
Way says there will be no fees for the administration of this project,”
says Griggs.  “Even credit card companies have waived their fees for
credit transactions benefiting this cause.”
Griggs
and Pinson were grief stricken over the incident. Griggs wrote on his
Facebook account, “My eyes have been raining all afternoon. ‘Twenty
Little Angels’ tells of the tragedy and asks questions we all have asked
and want to know.  How did these sweet, pure, innocent children get
‘caught up in someone else’s hell?’ We do believe these little angels
are in heaven now so we tried to put things in perspective by sharing
our personal feelings to calm our anger and soothe our grief by writing a
song that would bring comfort to us and to all affected by this
tragedy.”
“20 Little Angels” will be available for download, via iTunes, this week.
Griggs
notes, “There’s not enough that can be done for this cause but by
downloading this song, everyone’s small contribution can make a big
difference to the families of these ‘Twenty Little Angels.'”
About Andy Griggs & Bobby Pinson
Andy
Griggs and Bobby Pinson met while signed with RCA Records. Pinson’s
“Man Like Me” packed a punch that landed him a highly coveted slot in
Blender Magazine’s year end list as one of the Top 50 Albums in all
genres.  After his label deal, over 40 of Pinson’s songs found their way
onto major albums and six were #1 hits by Toby Keith, Rascal Flatts,
Sugarland and Jason Aldean.  In 2009, Pinson’s success earned him the
coveted BMI Songwriter of the Year Award.  Griggs signed with RCA in
1998 and his first album and single by the same name “You Won’t Ever Be
Lonely” went #1 and both were given the status of “forever” Gold. “She’s
More” also went to #1.  Additionally, Griggs has had ten Top 10 hits
including: “She Thinks She Needs Me,” “If Heaven,” “Tonight I Wanna Be
Your Man,” “How Cool is That,” and also performed duets with his dear
friend and “hero” Waylon Jennings, as well as Martina McBride and
Cinderellas’ Tom Keiffer.  He had three albums on RCA, and one on
Montage before taking the leap to start his own label, Little Hannel
Records.  The label allows Griggs to bring more definition to his music
style, his producing abilities and his brand.
