New single appears on Spotify's "New Music Friday"
Dynamic entertainer and multiple award-winning artist Ginny Owens became a household name when she was named the Gospel Music Association’s “New Artist of the Year” in 2000. In a meaningful career that now encompasses nearly two decades of music – including 10 full-length recordings, three EPs, a popular Christmas album, number one radio singles, and numerous film and television placements – the critically-acclaimed singer-songwriter is now celebrating the recent release of her single “Stand With Me” feat.Resound. With a total playlisting reach of over 4.5 million impressions on Spotify & Pandora, “Stand With Me” received first week adds to premiere playlists including New Music Friday (2.8 million impressions) and Top Christian (982,000 impressions).
Owens reacts to the first week success: “’Stand With Me’ is one of those songs you have the honor of writing. My co-writers and I knew it was special even as we crafted it, and I’m thankful to know so many listeners think so too. I hope this means we’ll all be working to break down the barriers between us and learn to stand together.”
Born and raised in Jackson, Mississippi, a degenerative eye condition left Ginny completely blind by the tender age of three. As her vision diminished, her love of music and the piano expanded, and Ginny discovered songwriting as a window into her unseen world. The unique perspectives inspired by her vision impairment have resulted in inspirational lyrics paired with her diverse musicianship to afford her a space on an even more diverse set of stages, including the Sundance Film Festival, Lilith Fair and the White House, and recordings that transcend genre expectations.
