2008 Jim Brickman/Lady Antebellum Collaboration on 'Never Alone' Remains A Huge Success and Closes On 1,000,000 views on YouTube!
SANTA MONICA, Calif., Feb. 4 /PRNewswire/ -- The Savoy Label Group (SLG) and Jim Brickman congratulate the incredible #1 chart debut this week of Lady Antebellum's newest release "Need You Now." Brickman and the group collaborated on "Never Alone" in 2008 marking the group's first commercial release and is featured on the album "VALENTINE." Brickman went into the studio and recorded the A/C charting single with Lady Antebellum featuring the groups lead vocalist Hillary Scott (a song coincidentally written by Scott's aunt/songsmith Victoria Shaw). The song soon took on a life of its own and the video, which features Lady Antebellum, Jim Brickman and a host of friends, remains a YouTube sensation approaching 1 million views!
"VALENTINE" was one of Brickman's several projects with SLG Records for the chart-topping, multi-platinum artist. A lush, unabashed work of romanticism, the project included both instrumental compositions and vocal ballads—a niche that he almost single-handedly dominated. "Never Alone" was yet another in a continuous string of hit songs--a list of which he holds the distinction of being the #1 artist with charting A/C radio hits. Brickman has also collaborated on numerous vocal events with the likes of Martina McBride, Olivia Newton-John, Michael W. Smith, Jane Krakowski and Rebecca Lynn Howard and Sara Evans fostering crossover success on the country, Christian, contemporary jazz and smooth jazz singles charts.
